A dear friend told me of Christian Science

A dear friend told me of Christian Science. Before that I had gone through deep waters of sickness and had had several operations. I had tried many different medicines, but I always felt worse instead of better after using them. Finally I started to attend a Christian Science church regularly, 't he Wednesday evening testimony meetings were very helpful. In a short time I threw my medicines away. Slowly but surely Christian Science healed me completely.

About three years ago at my place of employment I was taken ill and could not stand up straight. This was witnessed by two fellow workmen, and so it had to be reported. I was told that I had a double hernia and that unless f submitted to an operation, I would not come under the employment rules and thus would lose my job. Therefore I finally consented to their ways of medicine and had the operation. However, afterward I was worse than ever. I could not work, and in addition to the physical trouble, I had a nervous breakdown .

I knew then and there I must turn to God with my whole heart, and I called a Christian Science practitioner. After being sure that I was under no medical or hospital treatment, because, as Jesus said, "Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matt. 6:24), the practitioner lovingly took up the work. In a few months I was back at work completely healed.
