I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science

I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science. When I was a teen-ager, I became ill while in a department store one day. My sister took me to a quiet place in the store and gave me a copy of the Sentinel which she found there. Shortly before this I had heard Christian Science mentioned favorably. At that time I could not read English fluently, but I was able to distinguish the word God. My need was great, I was receptive, and I was healed almost immediately. Since that time I have used Christian Science for all my needs, and I learned to speak and read English mostly through studying Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.

One of my healings was that of a fistula which had been operated on before I began to study Christian Science. Years later it returned with severe pain. I called a practitioner, who gave me one treatment. The condition was healed overnight and has not returned through the eleven years that have passed since that time.

When my son was about eight years old and we were in a strange town, boils broke out all at once over his entire body. He had a high fever and was in pain, so I put him to bed and went into another room to study Science and Health. He had had some training in a Christian Science Sunday School. That evening I went to a Wednesday evening testimony meeting. It was a wonderful meeting and was especially helpful because there were many testimonies about the healing of boils and abscesses. By the next morning the boy was normal.
