[Original testimony in German]

Profound gratitude prompts me to testify to the healing...

Profound gratitude prompts me to testify to the healing power of Truth, which has been manifested to me. Christian Science found me in a seemingly hopeless condition, physically and morally, after I had tried various methods of healing in vain. I was treated for kidney and lung trouble. For seven months I could not digest any kind of food, since my stomach refused everything. I was also suffering from a painful abdominal complaint, apparently the result of a bad fall in childhood.

While I was spending a few weeks in a sanitarium, where, in spite of the doctor's best endeavors, I felt no improvement, my relatives heard of Christian Science and decided to take me home and try this teaching. It was not easy for the dear practitioner who took my case to explain the truth to me; for I contradicted everything she said, and would not admit that I could be healed through Christian Science. However, the great calmness and certainty in her words convinced me of the truth. I felt that she had reached me through divine Love, and I asked her to continue treatment. From that hour I was able to digest all my food, and in three weeks I had gained about twenty pounds in weight. This surprised those around me very much, for they could hardly understand the change for the better.

Happy and grateful over this success, I told the practitioner I should not need her help any more, for I felt strong enough to continue the work alone. However, a few days later I was attacked by the pain worse than ever, and I had to prove what an understanding of God brings to men.
