I have been a student of Christian Science for some years, and have received many blessings during this time. I should like especially to express my gratitude for the protective power of God as demonstrated by Christian Science in a recent experience I had when our house was wrecked by a flying bomb.

It was early one Sunday afternoon when one of these missiles fell in the garden, and the room in which I was standing caught the full blast from the explosion, shattering the windows and breaking down the roof. I was buried under the debris. Though scarcely able to breathe for the choking dust, I reached out in faith to God and at once felt completely safe in His presence. When I realized that I was bleeding profusely, I immediately declared that blood does not give life but that God is my Life, and all fear left me.

I should like to say how much I appreciate the kindness shown me by the Air Raid Wardens who extricated me from the wreckage of my room. My mother, with God given strength, had been enabled to lift the whole window frame and hold up the weight until I could be moved from underneath. I found the doctors and nurses kind and considerate. When admitted to hospital I overheard that my case was considered hopeless, and that I might soon be "passing out," but this verdict was never for a moment accepted into my consciousness. Christian Science treatment was given as soon as news of the incident was conveyed to a practitioner, and she later informed my Christian Science teacher of what had taken place. I am very grateful to them for standing by me at that time, and I can never say how much I appreciate their loving help.
