[Original testimony in German]
Joyous gratitude for all the blessings I have received...
Joyous gratitude for all the blessings I have received through Christian Science prompts me to give this testimony. In 1913 I suffered so badly from articular rheumatism that at times I was unable to walk alone. For nine months I could not attend to my business. At this time God led me to Christian Science, and I asked a practitioner for help. After nine treatments I was able to undertake a journey during which I had to walk for two hours from the railway station to my destination. I was able to return the same day, in the same way, without feeling any pain in my limbs. As I felt strong and free from pain I was able to attend to my business again. Some years later I entered a new line of work in which I had to work out of doors much of the time. Since then neither damp, cold weather nor drenching rain has harmed me. I was very happy about this healing, and through steadily increasing interest in the Christ, Truth, I decided to depend only on Christian Science.
Due to the disease both my feet were misshapen and I had badly fallen arches. I also had big hard lumps on my soles, so that in walking I could tread only on the inside of my feet. I was obliged to wear boots specially made for me in order to be able to walk at all. Encouraged by the words of the practitioner that I should quietly trust in and cling to the truth, I earnestly studied the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Again and again I declared that the real man, as the image and likeness of God, always reflects divine perfection. During these years I occasionally visited another Christian Science practitioner, who lovingly showed me more about this Science. The Bible and the textbook became my constant companions. Gradually I gained more spiritual understanding, and since March, 1918, I have been completely free from this trouble, and now wear ordinary shoes again.
