Pacific—surgery avoided

A Christian Science Camp Welfare Worker on an island in the Pacific received a call from a serviceman in a naval hospital. His condition had been diagnosed by the doctors as that of varicose veins. The young man said he had been troubled by this condition for many years. Christian Science treatment was given by the Worker, who endeavored to lift the young serviceman's thoughts to the facts that man's being is always harmonious, that man has never been indisposed, but always manifests right and wholesome activity. The serviceman was asked to fill his thoughts with gratitude and love to the exclusion of all else. He at once sought earnestly to do this. He studied the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy faithfully.
