This testimony is offered in great gratitude for all that Christian Science has done and is doing for me, also with the hope that it may help someone who is confronted with similar difficulties. I have had so much help from reading the testimonies in the periodicals that I ought to be willing to share a few of my blessings with others, particularly as I live far in the country and have no opportunity of attending services. I have been to about twelve Sunday services and one Wednesday evening meeting in the sixteen years that have elapsed since I purchased the textbook, Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy.

After years of ill health and constant pain, accompanied by intense fatigue, I was given some copies of the Christian Science Sentinel. I devoured them, rejoicing in what I at once accepted as the truth, and the healing of a very severe type of indigestion and liver trouble, also internal displacement and congestion, began at once. These healings were not completed until the "renewing" of the mind was prayerfully undertaken, for many faults had to be cast out. The renewing process is still being carried on and with it the recovery of sight is being slowly manifested. When I took my glasses off first, all seemed to be seen as "through a glass, darkly." I seemed to see through a pin point if print was held against my nose; now after three years I can see and read large print quite easily. There still seems a long way to go, but I believe the words, "I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight." There have been many trials, financial difficulties, and material losses, but "all things work together for good to them that love God," and "grateful" is an inadequate word to use as an expression of what Christian Science has meant to me. The loving help of practitioners is one of the greatest blessings.—(Mrs.)M. Isabel Francis, Hunterville, New Zealand.
