It is with sincere gratitude and love for Christian Science, for the joy it has brought into my life, and for the many blessings I have received through the study of our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, that I am writing this testimony, long overdue.

When Christian Science came into my life I had been seeking to know more of Christianity and had been attending various churches for this purpose, because I had caught a glimpse of the truth from the texts (Matt. 28:20), "Lo. I am with you alway," and (26:41), "Watch and pray." One morning, however, owing to the remarks of the minister, I decided not to attend church any more. The same afternoon I met a Christian Scientist to whom I mentioned my decision and the reason. This woman very kindly lent me a copy of Science and Health. When I had read the first chapter, on Prayer, I realized that I had found a pearl of great price. I immediately began to attend the services at one of the London churches.

A few weeks later the desire for smoking left me without any effort on my part, and I then gave up taking intoxicants. How beautiful the world seemed after I began to realize somewhat the meaning of ever-present, all-powerful divine Love, and to know that God guides, comforts, protects, and heals us when we accept this wonderful truth and trust implicitly.
