Some thirty-five years ago my life was saved by Christian Science

Some thirty-five years ago my life was saved by Christian Science. I had undergone an emergency abdominal operation and was in serious condition. The doctors had given up hope for my recovery. One evening an aunt, who was a student of Christian Science, came and spent the night at my bedside praying for me. In the morning the affected organs assumed their natural functions, contrary to medical expectations. Eventually I was fully healed, and about a year after that experience I took up the study of this Science. Other healings have followed.

While I was crossing a busy street in Durban one day I fell, landing heavily on my knees and hands. The traffic waited as I got up and limped to the sidewalk. The pain was intense, so I silently and thoughtfully repeated "the scientific statement of being" from page 468 of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, which begins: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all."
