Shattered wrist bones healed

My summer in Switzerland with a family that wanted an English immersion experience brought great opportunity to study and practice Christian Science. It stayed light there until about ten o’clock at night, so I would ride my bike to a beautiful hillside at the base of the Alps and read. My goal was to read every new book available in the Christian Science Reading Room. I loved all that I was learning, and I was feeling very close to God. 

One day while caring for the two young Swiss children outside their house, I fell on the slide and broke my wrist. I was in a lot of pain, and a bone was protruding, clearly out of place. Right away I started praying for myself to overcome the fear. I had never had to deal with a problem of this intensity on my own, and I was feeling especially alone in a foreign country without my family available or even my own phone.

Over the next few days, I tried without success to reach an English-speaking Christian Science practitioner to pray with me. On the third day, I drove a friend to his appointment at a medical doctor’s office. I had studied the weekly Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly that morning, and being there made it so clear to me that the medical thought and basis for treating patients was fundamentally opposite what I had read in the Bible Lesson. I firmly decided at that moment that the only way I wanted to handle the problem with my wrist was through Christian Science.
