Esterlita (Ester) Sarmiento had her first Christian Science healing at the age of 16. She was visiting her high school boyfriend Clarence’s family home when she tumbled down the stairs. Not knowing much about Christian Science, Clarence’s father gave her Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy to read. After reading three testimonies in the chapter on Fruitage, she fell asleep and woke up completely healed.
After graduating from college with a degree in Computer Engineering, Ester married Clarence, had three daughters and worked for Dell Computers. In 2007, she participated in an Introduction to a Christian Science Nursing Class in Manila led by Katherine Lundberg of Glenmont, a Christian Science nursing facility in Ohio. She and Clarence both immediately took to Christian Science nursing and headed to the United States for further training.
Ester started her Christian Science Nurses’ Training at Fern Lodge and then received advance training at Glenmont. She has been Journal-listed since 2013.
High Ridge House, says Ester, “is a new step of progress in spiritual growth for my Christian Science nursing ministry. It’s an opportunity to grow more and inspire others.”
In additional to her love for Christian Science nursing, Ester loves to cook, something that’s benefiting all of us at High Ridge House.
