I did not begin the study of Christian Science for myself, but in order to help another. During the sixteen years since I first heard of this Science it has become to me the source of all joy; and when looking back at the time before I knew of it. I wonder in what my happiness then consisted. It is the spiritual uplifting which is most wonderful, for it shows us that our efforts for good are worth while. I have had healing in many ways.

One instantaneous healing of violent sickness accompanied by great weakness, I should like to mention here. I awoke one morning with this difficulty, but was able, after reading the Lesson-Sermon and working in Science, to rise and dress; but I could eat no breakfast and had to lie down again. As I lay trying to work truly, suddenly the light came, and I realized how absurd it was to believe in what could not be true because God never made it. I got up well, and went out to my work feeling no ill effects. I have also been freed from sick headaches, which used to occur very frequently and prostrate me utterly. I am thankful to say that many unloving traits of character have been or are being overcome, though there is still much to do in this regard. For ability to help others I am most thankful. I am grateful for all the help our organization affords; for our Leader's writings; for membership in The Mother Church and in a branch church; for class instruction and the yearly Association meeting, which is all joy; for the lectures; for all the wonderful literature. I am so thankful to God, who inspired our beloved Leader to surround us with these safeguards. If we are obedient, and keep to the path marked out, we cannot be harmed in any way. I am most grateful, also, for the help of friends.—(Miss) C. Louise Searson, Broadstairs, Kent, England.
