Knee injury quickly overcome

I am currently incarcerated, and am a member of a Christian Science prison group. We meet regularly with a Christian Science chaplain to attend Sunday church services and testimony meetings. I have been studying Christian Science for a little over seven years and am a member of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. What a blessing these years have been for me and for the people around me as we have come to understand God’s love better.  

I found Christian Science in a way that could only have been God’s leading. One night, I prayed and asked God to send me to another unit if He wanted me to focus on Him more. The men in my unit, including my friends, were not supportive of my desire to know God better, and there was no one in this unit that I could turn to for help. Shortly after I prayed, I was reclassified and sent to a new unit. I knew that this was an answer to prayer. 

One day, a friend in my new unit asked me if I wanted to go to a Christian Science service with him. The protocol was that I had to write the chaplain and ask him to let me come to the services. At that first service, and upon meeting the volunteers there, I knew I was where God wanted me to be, and it has been a blessing ever since.
