The testimonies in the Christian Science...

The testimonies in the Christian Science periodicals have given me such courage and inspiration that gratitude makes me want to tell of some of my own experiences.

Many years ago I was camping in the mountains with other members of the family who were not Christian Scientists. Around the campfire at night, in answer to their questioning, I told them of Christian Science and its wonderful healing power. The next morning oak poisoning had broken out on my face and hands. I listened to sympathy and what my family said material remedies could do for me, and I became worse throughout the day. When alone that night I realized that I must prove that Christian Science does heal. I prayed earnestly to know that God had made only that which is good, and that He made all; that there was never any poison made. In the morning there was not a trace of the condition. I should like to add that I had suffered from oak poisoning many seasons previous to this healing, and have never done so since.

At another time, when I seemed to be passing on from the effects of eating lettuce which had been sprayed with arsenic, a Christian Science practitioner was asked for treatment, and complete healing was experienced before morning.
