Often at our Wednesday evening...

Often at our Wednesday evening testimony meetings we hear gratitude expressed for the practitioners, who respond so quickly when called upon for help. It was to such a practitioner, whose fine, clear, spiritual understanding has always been an inspiration to me, that I turned in desperation and deep discouragement some years ago when a sacroiliac trouble caused me much suffering. This difficulty had reappeared over a period of some ten years, and I realized that fear and a belief in the reality of the condition had not been overcome in my consciousness. This time the attack was much more severe and painful than usual; and it was not met. although, faithful work was done by an experienced practitioner.

Eventually I was unable to move or walk without great pain, and one night the name of a practitioner in a distant city, who had helped me many times in the past, came to me. I was not having Science help at the time, and I wrote to this practitioner and told her how filled with fear I was, that I was afraid to try to walk without a brace, and that I had got to the stage where I could not read or study. I immediately received a telegram telling me to brace up in Spirit and Truth and saying that she would work for me.

The practitioner pointed out to me that often when one's children are grown up and one does not have many interests, one's thoughts turn upon oneself, and she told me to get out and get some war work to do. I decided to be obedient, knowing that she was helping me. I got up, dressed, and drove my car some forty miles into San Francisco, where I applied for work. Several times, stepping from a curb, I experienced great pain, but I held to statements of Truth. When I returned home that night, I had made great strides in the right direction, and daily I gained in strength. In a very few weeks I was entirely healed and for the next three years was in active war work, standing many hours in a service canteen.
