In the hope of encouraging someone who is having a slow healing, I should like to testify to the healing which our small son had some time ago. It took three years—three years in which I saw my pride humbled and dragged in the dust. The condition was one most undesirable to look upon, and it was most strongly manifested on the child's face and head. Daily I saw people turn away from him, some in pity, many others in disgust or even fear. But through the loyal, steadfast, and loving work of Christian Science practitioners this condition cleared away; and during the time this was going on many other physical and moral healings took place. Also, before this healing was completely manifested, I had the experience of a practically painless childbirth. This was accomplished with the aid of a practitioner and a Christian Science nurse, the doctor called on the case not arriving until everything was over. The little girl born at that time has been a constant joy to us, and is an ever present reminder of God's power in the destruction of human laws and theories. Our son is now a strong, healthy boy, able to take his rightful place in childhood activities, and owes it all directly to Christian Science. To mention all our blessings would be impossible, for Christian Science has blessed our home and our business in countless ways.

I could not close this testimony without a word of thanks to the practitioner to whom I first turned. Her gracious, loving understanding carried me through many dark and hopeless days, and her patience with my fears and tears was indeed "from the Father." For all that Christian Science has done and is doing for us, for the literature, and for membership in The Mother Church I am sincerely grateful.—(Mrs.) Isabella H. Churchill, Detroit, Michigan.
