I am giving this testimony not only to express my gratitude but in the hope that it will be of some help to others.

Both of my parents were Christian Scientists, and I was brought up in the Sunday School. Throughout the years I have witnessed the healing of cancer, acute astigmatism, and heart trouble, among other things. These conditions were proven false by the understanding of the true nature of God, the God "who healeth all thy diseases" (Ps. 103:3). Space limits the detailed recounting of the solving of other problems, such as lack, unhappy social relations, and of protection during periods of extended travel.

The astigmatism was diagnosed as acute, and glasses were prescribed for me, with the warning that in the near future the prescription would have to be changed, as the eyes would get worse. Shortly afterward I lost the glasses in the snow and resolved then to take my stand for spiritual healing. I did not renew the glasses and was able to go without any. Four years later, when passing the rigorous examination for the Naval Air Corps, my eyesight was perfect.
