Malaria symptoms yield to prayer

In 1996 I was part of a group of about 100 people who escaped together on foot when Congolese rebels attacked refugee centers in Goma, Congo, next to the Rwandan border. At one point during our weeks of walking through the bush toward a safe zone, I suffered an attack of malaria.

Before I began the study of Christian Science some 30 years ago, whenever I suffered from malaria, I would go to hospital for diagnosis and treatment. Since in the bush our group had no doctors, nurses, or medicines, there was no possibility of conventional medical treatment. Nor could we stop walking. However, because of the consistent success I had had in treating all kinds of diseases, including malaria, through prayer, I knew I could be healed in this emergency. I had with me the books I use in my healing practice, the Bible and Science and Health.
