Some years ago I suffered extensive injuries in an automobile accident. My next five years were spent in going from one doctor to another, trying to regain my health. At the end of this time I was still in poor health, and what was worse, had fallen into a sense of hopelessness. Then it suddenly occurred to me to take up the study of Christian Science. This thought came to me as a God-sent message, for I knew nothing about this religion, nor did I know any person who was a student of it.

My gratitude for the change which has gradually taken place since then is immeasurable. My health has been regained; I have been healed of the need for eyeglasses; the smoking and social drinking habits have disappeared; a tendency toward constantly recurring colds has been overcome; and my mental attitude has completely changed. Many other healings, too numerous to mention, have been experienced.

My wife and two boys have enjoyed healings through the application of Christian Science. The most outstanding one occurred about four years ago. One afternoon while at work I received a call that our younger son, then just three years old, had been struck by a truck and was in a serious condition. I drove home, declaring the truth all the way. The boy was unconscious; and at the insistence of the police who had brought him home, I allowed him to be taken to a hospital to relieve them of further responsibility. X rays were taken, and the doctor's diagnosis stated that the boy was suffering from a fractured skull, concussion, and internal injuries. The medical authorities said that he would have to remain in the hospital for at least three weeks.
