I should like to express my appreciation for a healing of burns that I experienced recently. While cooking on the top of the gas stove, I lighted the oven and left it for a few minutes. When I opened the oven door there was a loud explosion, and I was bathed in flame. The gas had evidently not ignited, and had been escaping into the oven. My mother, who was in a room in the front of the apartment, heard the noise and felt the shock of the explosion. She came back to see what had happened, and found me seemingly badly burned. Her first move was to telephone to a Christian Science practitioner for me.

By this time I was suffering acutely, and was unable to keep still. I walked up and down for about forty minutes. My face was flushed, and my hands and forearms, particularly the right one, had become so swollen that a ring that was ordinarily loose was embedded in the flesh. My hair seemed to have been partly destroyed, and my eyebrows were singed and rough; but my eyelashes were normal, because I had shut my eyes tightly. So completely had the flame passed over me that even the fine hairs in the nostrils were burned off entirely.

We'd love to hear from you!
