Finding Christian Science—and healing

My growing-up years were a very sad experience. My mother, who was the last of my father’s five wives, had four children. She died when I was six years old, and our father died when I was twelve, so my half brothers and sisters had to take care of me. This was not easy, because when I was in primary four (second grade), a strange sickness struck me, leading to paralysis on the left side of my body. In the hospital, the doctors could not help me. At home, the native doctors and herbalists could not help, either. My lot was to cry and sing to God, who I prayed would help me. 

Several years later, I started worshiping with a denomination that believes that visions and dreams help connect us to God, and that we are healed by the prayers of the church’s prophets. I was healed of the paralysis—miraculously, I thought—so I remained with this church. I devoted my time to reading the Igbo Bible.
