In deep and lasting gratitude...

In deep and lasting gratitude to God, and to our beloved Leader for her revelation of the eternality and practicality of Truth in redeeming mankind from evil, we submit this testimony.

In the winter of 1933, three specialists met in consultation regarding the grave condition of our younger son, who for almost two months had been under constant medical care for a complication of diseases diagnosed as scarlet fever, lobar pneumonia, and acute nephritis. They told us that the boy was beyond recovery and could not possibly survive through the night. One specialist sympathetically added: "I don't know what your religion is. There is always prayer; some things are beyond our knowledge."

It was in this extremity that we turned wholly to Christian Science and discontinued all medical treatment for our son. We telephoned to a practitioner in another city for help, and were immediately given loving and emphatic assurances of the allness and immutability of God, good, and the nothingness of evil and its erroneous claims. This consecrated worker for Truth drove through a severe snowstorm seventy miles to our home that night. On his arrival, he gently refused to be rushed to the child's room, saying: "I have not come to see a sick or dying child. God is Life and God is All. There is no evil to fear." A sense of peace prevailed as these and other truths in Christian Science were voiced and held to.
