When one realizes that the steady outpouring of gratitude expressed in testimonies in the Christian Science periodicals, week by week and month by month, comes from hosts of men and women throughout the world who have felt the healing power of Truth and have proved the richness of God's love in the overcoming of all manner of sickness, sin, and discord, words fail as an adequate means of expression of appreciation for Christian Science.

It was the desire to find a permanently satisfying religion which led me to begin an investigation of the teachings of Christian Science in January, 1933. That I had found the truth for which I had been seeking was soon proved to me through the unsought healing of astigmatism of both eyes. An eye affection, which had necessitated my wearing slightly tinted glasses, was also healed, solely through the prayerful reading of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. With the loving help of a practitioner I was healed in the same year of hay fever of twenty years' standing, although medical opinion had decreed that nothing could be done for this complaint.

Numerous healings followed these first proofs of the truth of Christian Science, including more recently a healing in a few hours of the effects of a geyser explosion, which had scorched my eyes badly and blinded me. Other blessings have come to me, such as the ability to undertake new duties without fear, knowing that God, divine Mind, supplies us with all needful ideas. The blessings for which I am most grateful, however, are the correction of faults of character, the better understanding of God, and the companionship of the Bible and Science and Health, both of which I read daily and understand more and more clearly.
