I am submitting this testimony in sincere gratitude to God for Christian Science and for the many benefits I have received since taking up its study twenty-seven years ago.

From the time I was about ten years of age I had a great yearning to know God better. I attended church and Sunday School regularly, and when old enough to choose for myself I attended services in churches of many different denominations, always seeking, but never satisfied. I had almost given up hope when I received a letter from an uncle in America advising me to try Christian Science.

At first I hesitated, thinking it would be just another denomination like all the others. I prayed daily for six months that I should be led to do what was right, and then I borrowed the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I had not read far in the chapter on Prayer before I realized I had found the truth I had so long been seeking.
