Now I know that God exists

Originally written in German, this testimony first appeared in the September 2013 German, French, Portuguese, and Spanish editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I came to Germany as a young woman and a widow with two young children. I was full of worries, sorrow, and in bad health. When I came down with the flu, a doctor gave me some medication, which did not provide any relief. For several days, I had a high fever and was hardly able to go to work.

At the time, I was teaching in an evening language school, and one of the students said she was very concerned about me. She told me about a religion, called Christian Science, which heals through prayer. I had heard a little bit about it through my sister who had lived in the United States for a long time and who had been given the book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy as a gift.

Well, I found Christian Science hard to believe and far from the religion that I thought was the only good one. But I was searching for God. I wanted to get to know God and have confirmation that God really exists. So I went to see the Christian Science practitioner my student had told me about.
