It gives me great joy to testify concerning the comforting and healing power of Christian Science. I have experienced many physical healings, but it is of the mental healing which has come to me in times of great need that I wish to speak. It has been proved to me many times that God is ever present, everywhere, at all times, and under all circumstances, to comfort and bless us.

At the time when, with the passing of my father and giving up of my home, everything seemed taken from me, a friend who was a Christian Scientist said to me: "Nothing real and good can ever be taken from you. You can never lose the good which God has given you, for He never leaves us nor forsakes us in our hour of need." I knew very little about Christian Science at this time, but through sadness and loneliness I held to the truth spoken by this friend, and I have proved its reality through many changing experiences.

Many years later I sat in a railway station waiting for a train. I was facing the blank hopelessness of the near future. I was without the prospect of a position, without a home, and with very little money. The friend who was waiting with me, a Christian Scientist, refused steadfastly to believe the sense-evidence regarding the situation. She declared positively that she knew home and work and plentiful supply awaited me. She said: "God never deserts us in our hour of need. He is always 'a very present help in trouble.' " A few days later a telegram which had been misdirected reached me, just in time for an interview which resulted in a very fine position, and opened the way of large opportunity, congenial friendships, and happy home relationships.
