With a longing to express my gratitude for Christian Science...

With a longing to express my gratitude for Christian Science I give this testimony. In the summer of 1912 I met a lady from Argentina, South America, who asked me with the most cheerful expression whether I trusted in God's almightiness. At that time I was forced to remain in my room, suffering from a disease which the physicians had declared incurable—and I had been in this condition for eighteen years. Distrust, obstinacy, an overbearing spirit, and doubt had erected a high wall around me. I was only a little over thirty and could not understand that such should be God's intention with my life.

The question thus addressed by this lady about my trust in God's power gave me much to think about. Some days afterwards she gave me a paper with an article from Der Herold, and that was the first time I had seen the name Christian Science. It was the voice of Truth to me. In the course of a short time I was able, with the assistance of a Christian Scientist, to read Mrs. Eddy's book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," although I had never before read any English. Soon after that I was in a condition to leave the room where I had been sitting for eleven years, practically given up. I could found a home of my own, work for my livelihood, and maintain myself instead of being maintained by others. Day after day, year after year, have I thus experienced in Christian Science untold blessings according as my understanding of the truth has grown.
