This is my first written testimony

This is my first written testimony. And because the Christian Science periodicals are very precious to me, I feel prompted to say "thank you" to all the writers of the articles and testimonies published in them. I look forward to receiving these magazines so much. When they arrive it's just like having a friend visit.

When I was in my teens my mother had a wonderful healing, and she saw to it that I was enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School. As time passes I become increasingly grateful for what I learned there. The teachers were always ready and willing to help us by answering our questions. During the Second World War, when I was away from home, one of my former Sunday School teachers (a close friend of Mother's and a Christian Science practitioner) was always available to help me with any of my problems.

I can never be grateful enough for her loving support during those years I spent in the Women's Land Army. On one occasion, when I was milking a newly calved heifer, the animal knocked me down and trod on my leg, hurting it severely. I could only hobble and with great difficulty. I wrote to this friend, as I did not want to alarm my parents, and with her loving prayer and encouragement I was healed before very long. I can't recall any specific spiritual truths that helped me in my prayerful work during the war years, as that time was so long ago. But most likely I was benefited by this statement in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 385): "Whatever it is your duty to do, you can do without harm to yourself."
