World War II refugee finds help and health

When I first heard of Christian Science as a young teenager, I needed it very badly. My life seemed almost beyond hope. We were refugees after World War II and lived in great poverty. I had lost several members of my family, and I was often ill and unable to go to school. Doctors discovered that I had been born with a heart problem; I often suffered from asthma; and I had lots of other physical problems.

The first time I heard of Christian Science, I was too prejudiced to accept it and ridiculed it instead. Young people in my country were not very religiously minded, and I had never before heard of such a thing as a Sunday School. But the more I heard about this religion through a family member, the more curious I became. One Sunday I decided to find out for myself. During that first Sunday School session, I was so impressed by the love and intelligence expressed there that all my prejudice simply left. I made up my mind never to miss a single Sunday. From then on, I learned more and more that God was my Father and Mother and my best Physician. My life began to change for the better.
