When Christian Science was presented to me I was a complete wreck, having suffered for three years from a growth in my right side and many other ailments which were supposed to be the result of this growth. After a lot of persuasion I finally decided to go to a hospital, when suddenly a wonderful thing happened. I had occasion to go to a Christian Science practitioner's office for a package that had been left there in a neighborly way, and after thanking him for the package I was prompted to ask him for some literature on Christian Science; so he lent me a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. As I left the office he said, "God can heal anything." That was what impressed me. The next day I returned for a treatment; and with that one treatment I was instantaneously healed. I am so grateful, not only for this beautiful healing, but for the wonderful joy and spiritual uplift that have come to me since taking up the study of Christian Science.

I have received many healings since my first one. I have been healed of sin, grief, eye trouble, and a severe case of hemorrhage, which continued for a period of seven weeks and left me feeling very weak. I was healed as soon as I realized that God is my Life and strength, and that blood has no power. — (Mrs.) Emily Gage Cumming, New York, New York.
