I have received benefit from the testimonies of healing in our periodicals, and if there are any who are discouraged over a seeming lack of healing, I hope that my experience may be of benefit to them. I did not come to Christian Science through the healing, but when my need for help came it was a great need, and in spite of the loving efforts of several Scientists I was seemingly not healed.

Mrs. Eddy tells us: "If Christian Scientists ever fail to receive aid from other Scientists,—their brethren upon whom they may call,—... step by step will those who trust Him find that 'God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble'" (Science and Health, p. 444). I knew little as to how I should work, but I tried to declare the truth, and gradually improved. It was, however, more than a year before I was well.

Since then, as I have gained in the understanding of Christian Science, many so-called severe ailments have yielded to the power of Truth, and I cannot express all the gratitude that is in my heart for Mrs. Eddy's devoted life, through which we have the blessing of Christian Science.
