RADIO PROGRAM No. 38 - Healing the Aftereffects of War

On this program Fred J. Lewis of St. John's, Newfoundland, told of his own experience, as follows:

In the First World War, I received a gunshot wound in the upper arm between the elbow and the shoulder, the bullet passing through the bone and shattering it badly. For more than twenty-seven years I had so many operations that I lost count of them. Finally my sister persuaded me to read "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I had not been reading it very long when my arm became inflamed again. I understood very little of what this book teaches about God's power to heal—but enough so that I decided to turn to Christian Science for healing.

At first the suffering continued. But in about a week a very remarkable thing took place. Without any material surgery the wound opened while I was asleep, and I was immensely relieved. It was the first time this had occurred without an operation.
