With a heart full of gratitude I should like to give the following testimony.

My child had always been weak and ailing and was ill with first one and then another disease. In 1930 his condition grew so much worse that he could hardly breathe. He could no longer eat, and had severe attacks day and night. One day he turned so blue that I thought it was the end; the doctors stated that it was a severe case of asthma. Medicine did not help. In order to save his life I was to take him into the mountains, for only in such pure air was there supposed to be any hope of improvement. Anxiety and fear made me sick myself.

Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 567), "Truth and Love come nearer in the hour of woe." A kind friend called my attention to Christian Science and gave me the address of a practitioner. I started out for her house at once and took the child with me. The great selfless love with which the practitioner took up the treatment opened my eyes, and my anxiety disappeared. I learned that God, our Physician, is always present; and after this very first visit a deep sense of peace came over my child and me. The boy was very receptive to the truth and immediately turned away from the claim of sickness, for the truth that God is good dawned on him. Through constant and persistent reliance on the power of God, Truth won the victory over the error. The child was completely healed through Christian Science.
