There were seven of us, five girls and two counselors, all students of Christian Science. I was one of the counselors. Each day as we hiked, ideas gained from the Lesson-Sermon had given us strength, reminded us of God's presence, and protected us. We were seventeen miles from our camp—as the crow flies—but far from human aid, so we naturally looked to God to care for us.
