Malaria healed

Years ago, I had an experience that proved to me God’s ability to heal and save in any circumstance and showed me that prayer can bring healing when we are faced with malaria or any other disease.

I had been in Niger, West Africa, for approximately 11 months, volunteering for the Peace Corps, when I began to display symptoms of malaria. In accordance with Peace Corps protocol and regulations, I was placed under medical care, and the doctors diagnosed me with malaria.

Though I was able to return to my post within a few days, when I was back in the United States about a year later, the symptoms came back even more aggressively. This time I was free to rely wholly on Christian Science treatment. I had spoken with a Christian Science practitioner when in Niger, and the same practitioner was called again. And, of course, we looked to God as “a very present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1).
