My gratitude for Christian Science...

My gratitude for Christian Science has been without limit or cessation ever since I began its study and practice more than eleven years ago. At that time I had no religion, nor did I feel a specific need for one. But a particular incident made me aware that Christian Science affords instant and constant access to God's love and protection.

I was an Air Corps Reservist working as a civilian pilot, under contract to the Air Corps. My wife, who is a Christian Scientist, and I were flying in a private airplane on a business trip when we were caught in a sudden severe snowstorm. The visibility was immediately reduced to zero, and our airplane was not equipped for instrument flying.

I told my wife that if she knew Christian Science would work, the opportunity was at hand to prove it. She declared the truth aloud, and at length we were enabled to turn around and to fly out of the worst of the snowstorm. However, the storm was closing in around us, and I knew that there were no emergency landing fields near. To reach the airfield where we had last stopped seemed impossible, for over half our fuel was gone.
