"Patience must 'have her perfect work.'" These words by Mrs. Eddy, found in Science and Health (p. 454), have been proved true many times since I first began the study of Christian Science. Many years previous to this my thought was very much prejudiced against what I believed this truth to be, but the steadfast patience and love expressed towards me by members of my family and other Scientists, pierced the darkness of this false attitude, when at a time of great mental distress I turned to this joyous revelation of good. Thought not religiously inclined, I began to realize how mentally hungry I had been for a better understanding of God and my relationship to Him.

I have had many permanent and sometimes instantaneous healings through the study and application of this Science, among which are freedom from headaches, toothaches, colds, discordant relationships, an unlovely disposition, and a quick and permanent recovery from the effects of an operation for acute appendicitis which the doctors had pronounced fatal. I am especially grateful for the consecrated and understanding work done for me by faithful practitioners.

I am deeply appreciative of the privilege of membership in a branch church and The Mother Church. This opportunity to express unselfed love has meant a steady and beautiful unfoldment to me of God's presence, power, and love. I am daily learning that we receive in proportion as we give unselfishly of our time and thought and support to all the activities of Christian Science, and as we refuse to entertain anything but loving, honest, and truthful thoughts about all mankind. — (Miss) Constance Wilhemena Wissinger, Detroit, Michigan.
