Volunteer Ministers Exhibit Effective Help For NZ

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Exhibit Effective Help For Today's New Zealand
12 July 2006

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND—From Cyclone Larry to the South Asian tsunamis, and from Ground Zero to the London terror bombings, Scientology Volunteer Ministers have traveled the world, providing effective help in times of peril. Saturday, 10 AM, they will arrive in Otara Town Centre, South Auckland for the “Something CAN Be Done About It” Goodwill Tour at a time of peace and promise. Nonetheless, say the tour’s organizers, they will bring with them—and leave behind for all to use—special know-how and skills to not only overcome life’s sufferings but to help Kiwis improve the quality of life in this country.

"Scientology Volunteer Ministers are trained in 19 facets of life to give practical answers," says Rita Peters, long-time Maori Scientologist, mother of four. "Scientology has helped me with raising my children and given me tools for a better life," she concludes with an invitation to learn some of those practical skills at the exhibition starting Saturday. Special guest Mihi Hohepa, representative of the Maori Queen will be cutting the ribbon with other community leaders.

The touring Volunteer Ministers will be here soon with straight answers to these and countless other questions. But, for a preview of their activities, aims and accomplishments worldwide, visit the web sites, and
