For a number of years, during which I felt in need of no particular help from Christian Science, my study and church attendance suffered badly. Finally a blemish appeared on my face. My sister, a practitioner in another city, told me that if I were going to handle the condition in Science, I should not ignore it but do specific work to heal it and prove the nothingness of error. She suggested that I get in touch with a practitioner with whom I could talk.

I did this and also started to work for myself; but the blemish became more and more alarming to my friends, some of whom thought I had cancer. Among these were two medical men. During this period I studied Christian Science assiduously and had absolutely no fear. I do not know at just what point the healing came, but the blemish, which had grown to about the size of a quarter of a dollar, started to diminish in size until it shortly was only a slight discoloration. This healing took place over a year ago. It was witnessed by many of my friends, who recognized that it came through the understanding of God gained through Christian Science.

I am filled with gratitude to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for her consecrated work, which has brought us such a clear understanding of God, good. I am also very happy that I am again actively trying to live daily in accordance with the teachings of Christian Science.—William Oscar Carey, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
