It is gratitude which makes us want to give our joyful thoughts of healing to others and that inspires me to write this testimony. Many times I have been strengthened by reading the testimonies in the Sentinel.

Over three years ago I was suddenly taken seriously ill. I consulted a doctor, but he was seemingly at a loss to diagnose the case, so I then interviewed a specialist. He said he thought I had a hidden goiter, but as I was in a very low state, he did not wish to operate without holding a consultation with some of the other specialists. So I was taken to a public hospital and put under observation. A number of the most prominent specialists very kindly gave me considerable attention but varied in their opinions. The general summing up was teeth, heart, and thyroid or goiter trouble, chronic toxemia, constipation, nerves, and general low condition. Time dragged slowly by, until nine months had passed without anything actually being done to assist my recovery. Although very fearful, I did a lot of thinking during the latter part of those nine months, and came to the conclusion that if I was ever to get out of a sickbed I needed something much higher than theories and opinions, no matter how kindly these were given.
