More Miracles from the Scientology VM’s in the Philippines

Stories like this one I got off ScientologyToday is the core of what the Scientology Volunteer Minister program is all about:

“One three-year-old boy was hanging around,”
the volunteer continued. “He wasn’t laughing or joining in with the
other kids and was quite solemn. He didn’t talk or smile. He watched
closely as the VMs taught the nurses and other residents to do the
assists. Then he came over, laid down on the mat and closed his eyes as
if is to say ‘OK my turn!’ but still without saying a single word. One
of the VMs asked him if he would like an assist. He just nodded and the
assist began. At first he looked like he was in a lot of pain —
grimacing, frowning, tightly clenching his fists. But at the end of the
assist he relaxed, opened his eyes, smiled and gave the VM a big hug!
Those are the stories that make this all worthwhile.”

Help is needed in the form of more
volunteers and funds to support those on the ground. If you can help
the Scientology Volunteer Ministers in the Philippines, contact the
International Volunteer Ministers Coordinator at www.volunteerministers.org/contact/

Mother of God. (images of bushfires in Victoria, Australia)

I’ve been blogging and writing and e-mailing and posting and digging lately about the fires in Australia, and how we’ve got to get some people down there to help.  On digg posts, I’ve seen a few folks write some “hardy har har” type comments, spectating on how silly it is or whatever. 

It doesn’t appear it’s totally real to some people the actual disaster that is happening down there, and what it actually means to have whole portions of countryside torched and people’s livelihood vaporised by a rolling brushfire that takes out anything in its path.

I don’t think I need to describe the disaster in more detail.

Now, I’m back here in the U.S.  I’m not in a position where I can go to
Melbourne and help out with this.  But I can tell people about it, and
so can you, because some very tired people in Victoria (namely
firefighters and the handful of Red Cross and Scientology Volunteer
Ministers that are on the ground assisting them) that are duking it out
with this thing.

Can you do something to help? 

Funds are needed to support the volunteers. If you can help, go to the Volunteer Ministers website and fill out the contact form they have there.  They’ll accept any help from anyone anywhere.

I know that the photo is a little out of date, but the situation is still very real.  Scientology Volunteers from the Church of Scientology Mission of Manila, as well as Scientology Volunteers from Taiwan and from Australia are now on the ground in the Philippines, working at the disaster sites. 

They need help.  Definitely contact the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Coordinater if you want to help — even if you’re halfway across the planet from there, there are absolutely things anyone can do to help the effort.

Australian Blazes Still Need Help

The blazes of most concern are those close to Mount Beauty (pictured), Jamieson and Whitfield in the state's north-east.

The blazes of most concern are those close to Mount Beauty (pictured), Jamieson and Whitfield in the state’s north-east.

Volunteers from around the Victoria, Tasmania and New Zealand area are still flat-out battling some of the biggest bushfires imaginable — and certainly the biggest in the last 25 years.

Anything you can do to help, just contact the Scientology Volunteer Minister Coordinator who can help direct you.  Needed are donations, as well as trained volunteers who can go down to the fire front and assist the firemen to stay in action.
