For several years I had suffered with indigestion and asthma, the latter condition becoming steadily worse. A doctor told me that if I had an internal operation, I should in all probability be cured. I submitted to two operations, and as soon as I was strong enough I traveled to my people in New Zealand to recuperate. For a short time I was fairly well, only very weak, but gradually the whole condition came back in a more severe form; the asthma became chronic and several other complications set in. I again went to a doctor, but he could do nothing for me, and medicines were of no avail. There seemed to be no relief for me, and I became very much depressed; but it was then that I found that "man's extremity is God's opportunity." I was persuaded to go to a Christian Science practitioner who was a visitor to my home town. After three weeks' treatment I was able to book my passage back to Australia, traveling with my small son of five.

The chronic state of asthma was completely broken, and in place of extreme weakness I found strength; and gradually by studying earnestly, and with the help of practitioners, I was completely healed. We have not used any medicine in our home for eight years; all our troubles have been overcome through the application of Christian Science.

I am sincerely grateful for membership in The Mother Church and also a branch church, in which I have had the privilege of serving as Reading Room librarian for three years. I am also grateful for having had the blessing of class instruction.—(Mrs.) Sylph Yarnton Mills, Parramatta, New South Wales, Australia.
