Update from Haiti for September 2011
More that 300 Volunteer Ministers groups in Haiti trained more that 20,000 in simple VM techniques and helped some 12,000 in the month of September 2011. We continue delivering seminars throughout the country.
Some of our recent activities include:
Twenty-four Volunteer Ministers groups in Bon Repos, Sarthe, Lilavois, Meillet and Cotard delivered seminars to more that 2,000 people.
A team of VMs arrived in Cap Haitian, met with local ministers and officials to find out what they need and want, and began Volunteer Minister delivery throughout that area. Working with the six groups in the area they provided 16 seminars to more than 500 people, and formed up another new 15 VM groups.
Another tour spent 10 days in Port de Paix in the north of the country. They worked with the more that 30 groups in the area, providing them with any help they needed to provide assistance in their areas, and they helped form up 15 new Volunteer Ministers groups. They delivered 12 seminars and trained nearly 500 people in VM technology.
One person who studied the Volunteer Ministers assist booklet said:
“I got many things from the Assists for Illness and Injuries booklet and I learned what to do to help somebody who is sick or in pain. Now I know that I cannot let somebody suffer, saying that I’m not a doctor, because I can use what I’ve learned from the assist booklet to him help him get relief. From now on, I have to do my best to help people in the streets and hospitals.”
Another, who studied the Integrity and Honesty booklet wrote:
“It showed me how important it is to respect the moral code…. These things give me another way of living my life and also make me a honest woman.”
A student who completed the Communication booklet wrote:
“This is the best book that I’ve ever read. It shows me how and why to communicate. It also shows me how important it is to listen to people and how important it is to have their attention. Thanks to L. Ron Hubbard for this great technology and also to supervisors who makes great efforts to share it to all the others.”
