I wish to express my gratitude for the many blessings...

I wish to express my gratitude for the many blessings received since I was healed through Christian Science.

When I was healed through its power, I knew nothing of its Principle except that it claimed to heal. I knew nothing of Mrs. Eddy, its Discoverer and Founder, and did not know any Christian Scientists. I was then living in a small town in Iowa where there were no Christian Scientists. I cared for my mother during her last illness of ten months' duration, and most of that time she was in bed and needed much care. For a number of years previous to her illness and passing on I had had poor health; after this I constantly feared I should have the same dreaded disease, which materia medica calls incurable.

I can truly say with Job, "The thing which I greatly feared is come upon me." When our family physician said nothing more could be done for me except an operation, I decided not to be operated on but to try to learn what Christian Science really is; how, I did not know, but a way was opened for me. As I now know, when I was ready to turn to God and denied all other help, His help was at hand, and the promise in Isaiah was fulfilled for me, "And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear." That very night I talked with a lady who had come from Montana to visit her parents; she had taken up the study of Christian Science. When I told her of my anguish and asked a few questions, she calmly replied, "God is ever present and God is Spirit." The peace I felt in those few moments is beyond words to express. I was instantly healed.
