Scientology Volunteers of St. Petersburg say "Something can be done about it"

27 August 2008 · Category: VM

The Church of Scientology of St. Petersburg is one of the largest and most active communities of Scientologists in the world. On any given weekend Scientology Volunteer Ministers from this church travel to a different town or city in the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region to help people learn about the effective solutions available to them through this volunteer program. That is how they came to set up their bright yellow tent earlier this month right next to the Culture House of the town of Kirovsk.

Every weekend, Scientology Volunteer Ministers from the Church of Scientology of St. Petersburg travel to a different towns and cities in the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region of Russia to help people learn about the effective solutions available through this volunteer program.

Inside the tent is an exhibition that makes if very clear why the Scientology Volunteer Ministers have the motto "something can be done about it," as it shows in detail how many subject were researched by Scientology Founder, and how this can be applied to better conditions in any aspect of life.

The displays cover such subjects as how to help a person overcome the effects of drugs and alcohol, how to salvage a relationship or marriage, how to learn any subject, how to bring up a happy, self-reliant child and how to help someone overcome the spiritual or emotional effects of injuries and trauma.

"We learned so much that will help in life," said one young woman who visited the tent in Kirovsk. "Now I understand how to judge who I can trust as a real friend and who is just pretending to want real friendship." She now feels much more optimistic because she can trust her judgment and reach out to create new relationships without worrying if she is going to be sorry she did so.

L. Ron Hubbard described the Scientology Volunteer Minister as someone who "...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."
