With heartfelt gratitude I give my testimony of healings received through Christian Science. Since my sixteenth year I was greatly troubled with constipation. In spite of the various material remedies used, as well as treatment from several physicians, including specialists, the condition became more serious, and I was to submit to an operation. The thought of this completely robbed me of my courage, and during these desperate days a dear acquaintance who had received blessings through Christian Science called my attention to and guided me in this teaching. The first visit to a Wednesday evening meeting left the impression that here I had found the right physician, and a few days of diligent study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, as well as of several copies of Der Herold der Christian Science, brought about a change in my condition. The much dreaded operation did not have to be undergone, and within a short time all my organs functioned properly. Six years have elapsed since this healing. During this time I have not resorted to medical aid; also all ills which have presented themselves in our family have been invariably taken care of without material aid, through the knowledge of God's omnipotence, as taught by Christ Jesus.

I am most grateful for these proofs of God's omnipotence and help, and hope that this testimony may lead many others to this divine teaching. I can now thank God understandingly and rightly for the blessings of life, truth, and love, and am also very grateful to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for giving us this wonderful truth, which when understood and rightly applied brings freedom to all.—(Mrs.) HILDA MATTER-HOSTETTLER, Winterthur, Switzerland.

I am able to vouch for my wife's testimony, for I did not know the meaning of health and harmony before Christian Science came into our home. I, too, have received many healings through Christian Science during the last few years.—Adolf Matter-Hostettler.
