When I first heard of Christian Science I had, for five years, been suffering from severe stomach trouble accompanied with dreadful pain; and the doctors had not been able to cure me. After one Christian Science treatment I was perfectly healed. This occurred sixteen years ago, and no trace of the complaint has returned. We have lived in the Dutch East Indies for eleven years, and Christian Science has been our only help in our difficulties, and at the birth as well as in the education of our child. When he was three years of age a lady told me we ought to see a physician, for she thought the boy had a severe rupture. I decided to consult a surgeon. He told me to bring the child to the hospital next day and to have him operated on because of the rupture. On leaving the surgeon I went straight to a Christian Science practitioner. After I had talked with her I was convinced that she would know the truth for the boy, and peace came over me. Though I had to bathe the child once or twice every day, the outward signs of the rupture were never again apparent to me, and it suddenly dawned upon me that the abnormal condition had disappeared; and it never has come back. Our son is now eleven years old.

We cannot be too grateful that Christian Science teaches us how to educate our children without the usual human fears. As a child I myself had many fears, but through the understanding of the truth as taught in Christian Science they have been conquered.
