I'm so proud of what the Scientology Volunteer Ministers are doing in South Asia, and I thought I'd share the story of one fellow who is there:

“Hi, I’m Oisin Grogan from Melbourne, Australia. Being here in Banda Aceh has been a life changing experience! Back in Melbourne I was looking to play a bigger game in life and I wanted to help people. I have been able to achieve that here in a massive way. I have watched fellow Scientology Volunteer Ministers do amazing things. I found that as you help more people, your ability to confront life grows and grows. We have literally created daily miracles applying L. Ron Hubbard’s assist methods. For instance I helped a man who could not move (or walk) without immense pain. At the end of the assist, he shuffled out by himself in virtually no pain! All the VMs here can tell you similar stories. Yesterday I was talking to a local person and realized I had just had a two-minute chat in Indonesian. It’s been an honor being here working with people from all over the world who all have the same purpose—to help. We have made many, many friends. Terima kasih bunyak! (Thank you very much.) “

“A Volunteer Minister does not shut his eyes to the pain, evil and injustice of existence. Rather, he is trained to handle these things and help others achieve relief from them and new personal strength as well."

- L. Ron Hubbard
