A testimony telling of my first...

A testimony telling of my first healing in Christian Science appeared in the Sentinel in 1933. The healing, that of a diseased thigh bone, has remained permanent, and I have experienced so many other healings and benefits, so much protection, guidance, and enlightenment, that sincere gratitude prompts me to give this further testimony.

Having now retired after thirty-three years of service in India, I can look back at that time with gratitude for all that Christian Science did for me while I was there. Very soon after my introduction to it, I gave up the use of alcoholic beverages and tobacco. Although the use of alcohol is strongly believed to be a social necessity and conducive to health in a tropical country like India, and although the use of tobacco is a common indulgence, I never again felt the slightest temptation to use either.

During my stay in India there were long periods spent in remote districts where I was out of touch with other Christian Scientists. It was then that I came to appreciate still more the writings of Mrs. Eddy and the periodicals which she so wisely established. I spent many months working in mosquito-infested, malarious tea-garden districts, where most of the Europeans suffered from malaria, notwithstanding the constant use of drugs prescribed for their protection. My sole protection was Christian Science, and I did not have one attack of malaria. Such experiences have proved to me the protecting power of Truth as revealed in Christian Science.
