I should like to confirm my testimony...

From the December 1957 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I should like to confirm my testimony which appeared in the Christian Science Sentinel of September 30, 1933, and to state that the fear of consumption mentioned therein was completely blotted out. During the years that have followed the publishing of the testimony, I have experienced much joy and happiness. My work has become increasingly interesting and progressive. I can honestly say that these words which appear in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy have been abundantly fulfilled (p. 128): "A knowledge of the Science of being develops the latent abilities and possibilities of man. It extends the atmosphere of thought, giving mortals access to broader and higher realms."

As the years have gone on, there have come to me a widened sense of activity and an abundant sense of supply. As a result of the broadening of my thought, I had the experience of flying around the world and of visiting my brothers and sister who live in Australia. Much good came from this visit.

One instance of this was the healing of my sister. She was not then a student of Christian Science and was awaiting a bed in a hospital in order to have an operation for an internal trouble which had persisted for about fifteen years. We talked daily of God's great love for His children and of man's perfection in His image and likeness. In addition, she commenced to study the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly and to attend a Church of Christ, Scientist, with me. Within less than a week, she told me with much joy that she had experienced encouraging evidence of physical improvement. Later, she was offered a bed in the hospital, but she refused the offer because there was now no need for the operation.
