RADIO PROGRAM - Overcoming Contagion

The account of healing in the program was given by Mrs. Ella May Klingbeil of Chicago, Illinois, who said:

My boys were nine and eleven at the time scarlet fever broke out in the grade school. I didn't pay much attention to it because my boys had never been ill, but one morning, just about daylight, I heard talking in the next room. On entering the boys' bedroom, I found that the older boy was delirious and had an extremely high temperature.

I called my husband, and he immediately called a doctor friend of his, who said that it was probably scarlet fever, as there were many cases in the town. He also said that since m husband was principal of the high school, he should immediately leave the house. My husband was not a Christian Scientist, and as soon as he left I went into the boy's bedroom and sat down beside him. He was a student in the Christian Science Sunday School, and I declared audibly that as the child of God he could experience nothing but good. He was delirious, and I was not sure that he could understand or hear what I was saying, but I continued to declare aloud God's love for all of His children and His closeness to every one of us.
