Testimonies of Healing

A project progresses with prayer

From the December 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

“You must make this work—I don’t want to hear that it can’t be done. This is too big a project and too much money is involved. Fix it—now!” And with those words from my boss ringing in my ears I walked out of his office. The problem was I didn’t know how to fix it and had people on both sides of a contract angry because I wouldn’t sign it. Much pressure. 

The United States government had issued a large-dollar contract to my university to work on the design of a prototype that could be very beneficial to many. The faculty member assigned to the project had the expertise to do the design, and it seemed like a worthwhile project. 

The problem facing me was I could not accept the terms of the contract. Working for a public university that did not do classified work, I could not accept a contract that included supervision of part of the contract that was classified. There was no way we could manage it or provide any oversight.
