"The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light." In deep gratitude to all who so lovingly guided my feeble footsteps out of darkness, and with the hope that it may encourage others who are seeking the light, I submit my testimony.

I did not come to Christian Science for healing. In the autumn of 1911 a member of the family called for help in Christian Science. Not knowing the facts about Christian Science healing, I strongly opposed this step, having been a student of materia medica. My opposition was overruled and a practitioner called. When my opposition was mentioned to the practitioner, she lovingly said that nothing would be said to me about Christian Science.

After several visits, the practitioner asked me to read some Bible references to the dear one who had asked for help. Since it has always been my desire to be helpful to all mankind, I gladly did so, but was quite surprised, as the Bible had never been mentioned to me in connection with Christian Science. My prejudice was destroyed when it was explained that Christian Science was founded entirely on the Bible. The patient, who had been carried upstairs for nine months, soon manifested marked improvement, and in three weeks was able to visit the practitioner.
