A timely letter
The situation of drought and starvation in Somalia and all through the southern regions of Africa, along with overpopulation problems in other parts of the world, causes Christian Scientists who care about mankind to wonder what they can do. I've been grateful for a lesson I learned a few years ago.
You may remember when the world was first shocked awake by the reports of starvation in Ethiopia. I decided to devote time each day to prayer, to aid in bringing relief to the people there. I studied, prayed, and listened to God. I gave what I felt I could to a relief agency. But after several weeks I suddenly became enmeshed in a severe mental battle.
