Finding Christian Science leads to healing of chronic menstrual pain
I’m originally from the Central African Republic, but I currently live in Mauritania. That’s where I heard about Christian Science for the first time.
I was born and raised in a Christian family, and when I was very young, my mom used to take me with her to church every Sunday. When I became older, my parents sent me to live with my uncle (my dad’s brother) and his family in the capital city so that I could pursue my education and go to high school. I was 15 years old.
My uncle, just like his wife, was not interested in religious matters, and they never went to mass on Sundays. I gradually got used to this new way of life and lost my interest in church.
