I wish to express gratitude for a healing which I received through Christian Science. I experienced a severe pain and noticed a small, hard swelling which appeared at the lower part of my right side. At the request of my wife, who is a member of a branch church and also of The Mother Church, I asked for the help of a practitioner and I received some relief, although the swelling remained. I then determined to see a doctor and find out the cause of the swelling. After a thorough examination he informed me that I had a large tumor, and said that this was one thing that Christian Science could not cure, and he suggested an operation.

Telling him I would think it over, I went with my family to a camp up in the mountains, thinking the peace and quiet would assist me in solving my problem, but the mistake I made was that I expected the practitioner to do the work and furnish the cure. My side turned black, and the swelling increased. I became very much discouraged and started home with the expectation of going to a hospital and having the tumor removed. As soon as I let go of God and turned to matter, the pain became very severe. At this point I requested help of my wife, who stopped the car and told me to decide between Christian Science treatment and the doctor. I made my decision in favor of Christian Science, and we telephoned a distance of over sixty miles for help, which was very lovingly given, and the pain subsided. We continued our journey, going direct to the office of the practitioner. As I now had turned wholeheartedly to God for help, I was responsive to divine Mind. In about three days my side commenced to discharge freely and continued for about a week, and in a short time the condition was completely healed. As the practitioner did not live in the same town, most of my treatments were absent.
