I should like to express my gratitude...

I should like to express my gratitude for Christian Science. Many years ago a friend told me that her husband had been healed of stiffness of the knees through Science after the doctors had told him that although they could operate, there was a possibility his knees would become permanently stiff. The operation was not performed. Christian Science was presented to him, and through his study and with the help of a practitioner he was completely healed. The time I saw him after his healing he was running up and down on the ice curling, a game that needs perfect freedom of knee action. While this healing impressed me, I did not think much more about it.

Shortly afterward I moved to another city. Just across the street from where I lived was a Church of Christ, Scientist, and I learned that there were some Christian Scientists living in the same house as I and that they attended the church. I too began attending the services and was led to secure a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I read this book through and then began to study the Lesson-Sermons as given in the Christian Science Quarterly.

Some years later I suffered a hemorrhage caused by an erroneous condition of long standing. I asked a practitioner for help and had an instantaneous and complete healing. At another time I was healed instantaneously of ptomaine poisoning. Both these healings have been permanent. My granddaughter, who was living with me, had a very bad sore just above one of her ears. Several doctors had been consulted before she came to live with me, but she had received no help. I wrote to a loving practitioner and asked for treatment for my granddaughter. As the sore did not clear up at once, I wrote her again, saying I would go to see her. She replied that she would be glad to see me, but that it was not necessary, for "now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Cor. 6:2). The sore healed at once and has never returned. Many other troubles have been overcome, some with the help of a practitioner and some through my own understanding.
