Scientology Volunteer Ministers of Si Racha, Thailand, Helping in Good Times and Bad
Scientology Volunteer Ministers group of Si Racha, Thailand, celebrates its fourth anniversary with renewed commitment to help the community.
On the Thailand coast, 60 miles south of Bangkok, a team of Scientology Volunteer Ministers from the town of Si Racha are celebrating their fourth anniversary as an organized group. Over the past four years, they have gained a reputation as people you can turn to for help, no matter the circumstances.
Formed in 2010 when the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Southeast Asia Goodwill Tour visited the region, the group is active whether times are good or bad.
Active throughout the year, in February they helped the children of a local Sunday school overcome their studying and learning problems by teaching them Study Technology developed by L. Ron Hubbard—one of the 19 subjects covered in the Scientology Handbook. That same week, they introduced the nurses of a nearby hospital to Scientology assists, techniques that address the mental and spiritual factors that precipitate and prolong illness and injury.
In 2011, when the worst monsoon in half a century swamped two-thirds of the country affecting 2.6 million people, the Volunteer Ministers worked side-by-side with disaster relief personnel, transporting food and supplies to people stranded on the roofs of their houses. They prepared and packaged meals for some of the hundreds of thousands living in shelters. And they provided Scientology assists to help disaster victims cope with stress and trauma.
Once the disaster was over, they continued working alongside local officials, accompanying them on monthly visits to outlying villages to provide needed assistance.
With their motto “No matter the problem, something can be done about it,” they help the people of the region year-round, to improve their lives, offering seminars and lectures on the practical tools contained in the Scientology Handbook.
Transcending all ethnic, cultural and religious boundaries, the Volunteer Minister program is there for anyone in need of help. Volunteer Minister training is available free of charge through the Scientology Volunteer Ministers website to anyone who wishes to help others.
