For over thirty years I have been testifying to my gratitude for Christian Science both at Wednesday evening meetings and in my devotion to church work. I should now like to be numbered among the thousands who through our periodicals have given testimony to the healing and regenerating power of Christian Science.

I have innumerable reasons for being grateful to our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. One of my early healings was freedom from the antagonism I felt for her even at the very time when I was looking to her writings for the help I needed, There have been physical healings, instantaneous and otherwise, of broken hones, quinsy, stomach trouble, a dislocated vertebra, corns, infection, and other conditions. Moral and spiritual progress has been the reward of main prayerful years.

One difficulty came at a time of great accomplishment. 'This was during the building of the extension to our branch church. I was helping with the building, as were others, both members and non-members. A few minutes before the close of a very strenuous day I injured a nerve in my hip. The pain was severe. Although this did not prevent me from helping with the construction work, nor keep me from performing my other duties, it took me well over a year to demonstrate freedom from constant pain and nervousness.
