The Power of Scientology

Dear editor,

I have been studying Scientology ["Death of a Scientologist," August 16] for over 30 years. As a Volunteer Minister of the Church, I have had many opportunities to help others using the simple yet effective tools developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. What follows are just a few of my successful actions.

In my earlier years, driving in a car, I saw an old man about to jump off a bridge overpass above a busy highway. He had climbed up a fence and had one more step to go. We immediately stopped, and I ran across the road, pulled him off the fence, and saved his life. He was elderly and disoriented, and I took him home and stayed with him until he was OK.

I currently live in Skokie. About a month ago there was an accident a few feet behind my car on Niles Center Road. A young man, obviously in shock, jumped out of a car with the entire front end demolished. I used a Scientology procedure called a locational to reorient him to his surroundings and bring him out of the shock of the accident he had just experienced. He was very grateful and, having been pulled out of shock, was able to move on.

I also volunteered in a tutoring program with children who came from troubled families and had below-average grades in reading. I was the only tutor in the group who used the study technology developed by Mr. Hubbard. Compared with the six other volunteers, my results were stellar. I successfully helped each of my kids to achieve a much higher level of reading. This was validated by the head of the board of education, who stated how impressed he was with my results, and that I should be a teacher.

I have had many, many successes like those listed above--hundreds of such wins. I have experienced nothing but caring and kindness from my fellow Scientologists, and have cared for mankind in the same manner. I am very grateful and proud to be a Volunteer Minister of the Church of Scientology.

Is there an area of your life that you would like help with? Give me a call!
