From my childhood I was used to going to church with my parents, but when I look back it becomes clear to me that it wasn't actually out of a desire or need to become absorbed in the Christian doctrine. It had become a habit, without any deeper meaning, and the long sermons were apt to bore me and send my thoughts elsewhere. What was missing was an indication of any practical use of the faith preached, and in my home sickness and other adversities in life were considered to be the outcome of Providence, which we just had to resign ourselves to.

What a difference it made when, as a young businessman in North Africa, I came in contact with Christian Science and a spiritual understanding of the Bible. This knowledge brought great experiences and healings, to which I should have testified long ago.

Even within the first few years' knowledge of this, to me, completely new healing method, I was led into encouraging experiences. A letter from my home brought me the news that one of my close relatives, who earlier had undergone two operations for tuberculosis, had now, for the third time, been admitted to the hospital for surgery. The doctors had diagnosed tuberculosis of the knee. I now advised my family to contact a Christian Science practitioner immediately, if one could be found in my homeland, and to ask for prayerful treatment. My advice was followed, and the result was a healing, in the course of a very few days, that was incomprehensible to the family and the doctors.
