Becoming a better healer

The “call” to take Christian Science Primary class instruction can reach one in the most unusual locations and unexpected ways.

I was serving in the United States Army as an artist during the Vietnam War, having been drafted out of graduate school. Along with four other artists, I was sent to Thailand to record the noncombat activities of the army in that country, such as building roads and transporting supplies. We were somewhere in the countryside, surrounded by a wide expanse of rice fields, when our lieutenant found me and delivered some mail—a letter from home. It ended with a simple postscript: “You might like to know that _____ will be teaching her first Primary class late this summer, when you will once again be a civilian.”
