In 1902 I attended my first Christian Science service, and seeing so many happy faces and being so warmly welcomed led me to further investigation. From boyhood I had been troubled with bad hearing. At the age of sixteen years an operation was performed by one of the best specialists of this city, with temporary relief, but gradually the ears closed up again. After being interested in Christian Science about a year, I began taking treatments for this trouble and in about six months was able to hear as well as anyone. My hearing has been good ever since. I have also been healed of smallpox, spinal trouble, rheumatism, and many minor ailments. All desire for smoking has left me, whereas I used to be a heavy smoker. I enjoy the Sunday services and the Wednesday evening testimony meetings. My daily desire and prayer is to become a better man, and to reflect love to every one I come in contact with. I can only express my thanks to Christian Science by living closer to its teachings, as taught by Mrs. Eddy.
