I give this testimony with a heart...

I give this testimony with a heart filled with thanksgiving to God for Christian Science. The first healing in our family through this Science was that of my wife, who was healed of chronic catarrh. Later our three-year-old son was instantaneously healed through Science of an internal rupture and of the hemorrhage which followed it.

When my wife suffered a severe stroke of paralysis, a physician was called by relatives who were not Christian Scientists. After he had examined her, he shook his head and said, "She will not live to get to the hospital; and if she does, she will not be alive in the morning." We decided to have Christian Science help instead of medical treatment. A practitioner worked faithfully for my wife, and in twenty-one days she had recovered so fully that she was able to walk two miles unaided.

I had been afflicted with asthma for ten years, having only short intervals of freedom. After a severe attack I telephoned a practitioner and gasped out the words, "Pray for me." She knew the voice, and before I had the receiver back in its place I was healed. That was over eight years ago, and there has been no return of the asthma.
