I have had many wonderful healings through reliance on Christian Science since I accepted this teaching as my way of life in 1957. I would like to share two recent experiences.

In March of 1984, while I was visiting relatives and their friends in an area some distance from my home, I suffered a sudden fall that resulted in severe damage to both ankles. On impact I distinctly heard and felt a snap in one ankle. My relatives, who are not Christian Scientists, lovingly offered to take me to a hospital for X-rays. When I declined they kindly respected my desire to work this out through prayer. A Christian Science practitioner was reached by telephone, and she began prayerful work immediately.

We worked together for several weeks, and it was so exciting and rewarding to call on the many powerful statements of truth from the Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy that were especially relevant to my needs at that time. These statements helped to support and enlarge my understanding that God, Spirit, is All and that man—my true and only identity—is spiritual, not material. Christ Jesus said (Matt. 5:48), "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
