was heartsick and discouraged when, in January, 1893,
I heard of Christian Science through a letter from a dear
sister who had been greatly benefited thereby, and I resolved
to go at once to a practitioner, for I believed it
to be the long-lost truth that would make me free. It
meant a great effort and sacrifice for me to go to Chicago
at that time, but divine Love opened the way and I reached
there in March. I had been in my sister's home but
a few days, reading Science and Health almost constantly,
when I asked her if I had not better have
treatment for the tumor, which had given me so much
trouble. She said to me, "You feel well, do you not?"
I assured her that I never had felt so well as I had since
reaching there. "Well," she said with decision, "your
tumor is gone, for God never made it," and her statements
were true, for it has never been heard of from that day.
Since then I have been healed of chronic sore throat,
hay fever, and other troubles, and I know that Christian
Science is the truth. - B. W. S., Coldwater, Mich.
LIGHT OUT OF DARKNESS
I have received so much benefit from the testimonies
in the Sentinel and Journal that I send mine, hoping
it may cheer some struggling heart. I was reared by
kind and loving Christian parents and was a member
of an orthodox church for over twenty years, but I was
never satisfied. I was filled with fear and bound down
by the false gods of this world, - sin, disease, and poverty;
consequently every way I turned, and in everything
I attempted to do, I was met with disappointment and
failure; but God was leading me into a different life.
