ICONIC SAN DIEGO LOCATIONS GET VM TENT
VM tent graces Balboa Park and the boardwalk of the USS Midway in San Diego.
The VM Goodwill Cavalcades not only criss-cross the planet, but Churches of Scientology set up VM tents in their own cities. San Diego did just that with their yellow peaks gracing the boardwalk near the USS Midway—the biggest tourist destination in San Diego—and at the much-loved Balboa Park, all in one day. The USS Midway, a retired aircraft carrier, is now a naval museum, listed as the sixth top US museum to visit.
Those from every walk of life visited the tent on the boardwalk, from a rickshaw driver, to a fisherman, teenagers on skate boards, recent college graduates, and businesspeople. No matter the problem they presented, there were Scientology tools to offer them to improve conditions in their lives.
That same day the VMs placed the tent at the 8th annual Finish Chelsea’s Run at San Diego’s Balboa Park. The purpose of the run is to recognize and support young people who will make the world a better place. The VMs didn’t just provide water bottles to the athletes, but gave assists and delivered courses on tools young people need to succeed in making the world a better place: The Communication Course, The Technology of Study Course and The Basics of Organizing Course.
WE really WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
Wherever a Volunteer Minister tent is placed, lives are changed for the better, such as for the visitors to one such tent in Antwerp, Belgium. Here is what some had to say:
ASSISTANT HEADMASTER, ADAKLU SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL, GHANA
You have devoted your time and resources and taken students through easy learning strategies. They are now curious and read whatever material they come across. Words cannot express the magnitude of the effect of your activities on the students.
TEACHER, UNIVERSIDAD PÚBLICA DE EL ALTO, BOLIVIA
The Universidad Pública de El Alto is pleased to recognize the Scientology Volunteer Ministers for their work in training students. This recognition aims to acknowledge the contribution and value of the information received by students who have the challenge of putting into practice what was discussed in the classrooms.
FLORIDA STATE SENATOR, USA
Hurricane Irma was an extremely powerful and catastrophic hurricane. The Volunteer Ministers team provided evacuees and others in need with more than 1,000 hot meals and tens of thousands of vitally needed items. In preparing to respond to future disasters, the team trained people on its Volunteer Ministers course in responses intended to lessen loss of life. I hereby recognize the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Program for its generous continued support of Miami residents at a time when it was most needed.
