I have been a student of Christian Science three years. I am a grateful member of The Mother Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and of First Church of Christ, Scientist, Accra, Ghana.

Sitting in my chair, I was impelled by the Christ to go out to the street, for what I did not know. In obedience, I went to the street a few yards away from my hall, whereupon I met a certain small boy, aged between five and six. I felt impelled to speak to him, only to find that he was dumb.
