With a deep sense of gratitude I send this testimony, hoping it will mean to some one who is struggling with some condition believed incurable, what a dear lady's message meant to me in an hour of great need. This lady, hearing of my condition, came to me with a face beaming with the sunshine of divine Love and a heart filled with gratitude, to tell me how she had been healed of a serious physical affliction, and also of a great sorrow. She had proved that "man's extremity is God's opportunity," and knew there was help for me. She had felt it her duty to come to me with this hope, and she left me a number of copies of the Sentinel, saying that she would provide me with more if I cared to have them.

At first none of this meant much to me, but finally I read a little in one of the Sentinels and enjoyed it so much that I read them all and sent for more. Then I began to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and after doing so for several weeks I began to realize that I was gaining. This encouraged me to continue the study, and in a little over a year I was entirely healed. I was at that time living in another state and was not acquainted with any of the Christian Scientists there. No one knew that I was reading the book, not even the members of my own family. No one knew what was healing me, nor did I myself fully realize that perfect healing was to be mine until it was nearly complete.

I had been in very poor health for fourteen years, much of the time not able to be around, and I had spent months in hospitals undergoing four serious operations. Finally I had a shock, which completely paralyzed one whole side, and such was the condition in which this lady found me. I had the best physicians in the city where I then lived, and they were faithful in doing all they could for me; but it was again proved that God is greater than man, and that the reading of the Christian Science textbook heals all manner of disease. I am now a member of The Mother Church. This healing took place about eight years ago, and has been permanent.
