I was healed of chest pains

Two years ago in June I was at a camp in Colorado, where I had a wonderful healing through prayer. It was my first full day, and I was planning on doing a ropes course. The ropes course is an obstacle course that you perform about 50 feet up in the trees. you have to swing from rope to rope and walk across a wooden log without any balancing support, or walk across thin ropes with only a safety device to support you as you go from tree to tree.

I'd been having pains in my chest since the morning, and I didn't think I would be feeling well enough to begin the course. It hurt when I breathed, and I thought I wouldn't be able to reach for the ropes and handles 50 feet up in the trees. I prayed and the pain lessened, but didn't go away.

I decided to go with everyone to the course anyway. And I spoke with a camp Christian Science practitioner, who helps people solve their problems through prayer: I told her I was having chest pains and asked her for help.
