Christian Science Testimony

         I became interested in Christian Science when I was a boy, and attended the Sunday school for several years. While I had a number of healings, I did not grasp their significance. However, while I was in the service I was greatly alarmed one day to find that I was coming down with pneumonia. This drove me back to Christian Science in earnest, and I wrote at once to a practitioner. Until the letter was received by the practitioner I grew steadily worse; but the next day all the symptoms began to disappear, and I could feel the surge of returning strength. In a day or so I was completely healed by absent treatment; and this experience awakened me to the significance of a practical religion that heals. Since that time the study of Christian Science has yielded me happiness and health, as it will anyone who tries earnestly to apply it.
