Something Can Be Done About It

Church of Scientology International Donates Books to Cebu City Library

I just came across this one when trolling through Google News, thought it was cute.  Original article is here on the Philippine Information Agency website:

Taken near the southwest coast of Cebu City, Philippines. From front: Marriott Hotel, Waterfront Hotel and Marco Polo Hotel.

Cebu, Philippines (20 April) — Scientology International donated an 18-volume limited edition of The BASICS, authored by L. Ron Hubbard to the City Library of Cebu.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers‘ International Goodwill Tour donates books to selected libraries all over the world, and the latest addition to the roster of recipients is the Cebu City library located at Osmena Boulevard, Cebu City.

Cebu City Librarian Rosario C. Chua welcomed the goodwill gesture of the Volunteer Ministers to house under her keep the brand new volumes of L. Ron Hubbard’s literary works for the benefit of the students and the reading populace of the Cebu City.

Another set was earlier donated to the University of Cebu LapuLapu & Mandaue Campus Library through the assistance of Mandaue City Vice Mayor Carlo Pontico Fortuna.

The aim of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Goodwill Tour is to share the knowledge developed by their founder to improve the people’s conditions in life.

The books contain comprehensive and substantial information on the way to happiness, and the development of human ability and how to handle life at all times.

Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health which was a bestseller for more than half a century today is written by the founder of Scientology. It is the first book about human mind that has been translated in more than fifty languages.

Anent to this, a daily Disaster Response Specialist training and Life Improvement course is being offered for free by the Volunteer Minister International Goodwill Tour soon in the Queen City of the South.

A visit to the Volunteer Minister Yellow Tent will provide the one-on-one assistance that the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Goodwill Tour in Philippines offers to anyone who wants to learn the technology of Knowing How to Know.

    My friend, I would sincerely recommend going down to your own local library and giving “Dianetics: Evolution of a Science” a good read. Then, I think we can have a lively discussion about such.

    I have chanced upon the life enhancement training in cebu city and signed up however my schedule did not permit me to go on tis classes, i was working in an IT firm working late shifts, i met missionaries there. I am now in iligan city, i really believe that missionaries and scientologiosts visit us here, we really need those disaster management courses and ministry. the mission is to improve people’s live and we need improving. if perchance you are able to help us out here with the classes and perhaps ministry as well i am able to hook you upguys with local govt and red cross and other intl organizations just to help out these people here, everyday living is a challenge to them.

    Mr Van Tatil: Thanks very much for the comment. I passed your question on to my friends at the International Volunteer Ministers centre, as they can definitely coordinate any actions you need in Cebu City to help your people. On an immediate basis, I would recommend starting on the on-line courses we have at, where there are free courses that walk you through all of the basics of Scientology as you can apply it to life.

    But I will definitely work to get someone in touch with you directly so as to coordinate getting you some disaster management courses and anything else you need to handle even the smaller “disasters” of life that face your people.
