Our occasional series on how people have nurtured their public of Christian Science healing.

HEALINGS LEAD TO A LIFE OF SPIRITUAL SERVICE

I was a member of the Catholic Church before I became a member of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, I learned about Science and Health, the textbook of Christian Science, from my friend. The first time I read the book, I received countless healings. It was the many healings that motivated me to become a member of the church.

I took Primary class instruction in Christian Science with a loyal teacher in Zambia. After my class instruction, many people in the community began asking me for help through prayer, including many who were the pastors of other churches. As the calls for help increased, I decided I wanted to give all my time to this spiritual practice. I felt strongly that God was calling me on a mission to express Him, and as I prayed, I cherished the quality of humility, keeping in mind Mary Baker Eddy's words that "great charity and humility is necessary in this work of healing" (Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, p. 7 ). As a result of my prayer, I applied to advertise as a practitioner in The Christian Science Journal.
