It gives me great pleasure to send the following testimony of an instantaneous healing which I experienced several years ago. I had been suffering with a pain in my side for years, thinking that because I knew something of Christian Science some day it would disappear like many other ills, without specific treatment. However, the time came when I saw differently. The pain began to torment me and it seemed unbearable.

I went to a practitioner's home one morning, without an appointment, and asked to see her for a little while. I told her of this pain and said I thought it was around my heart. She asked me where my heart was placed. I seemed to be at a loss to know just where, and, in fact, did not want to know. She declared, "God is the life of man; Life is not dependent on a physical heart. Study about God as Life." Presently my consciousness was filled with these words from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 203): "God is ... the centre and circumference of true being." I instantly felt I was healed; and I left her house with a greater desire to know more of God, and a great sense of joy and gratitude to her for her sweet assurance of God's love for me. This was over five years ago and the trouble has never returned. I have had many healings since then; headaches, colds, sprained ankle, and sorrow,—all have been overcome by the understanding of Christian Science and with the loving help of a dear practitioner.
