  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) December 19, 2014 - Though they have seen action at disaster sites from Ground Zero to Indonesia to Japan, for the last two weeks twenty members of the Volunteer Ministers of Tampa Bay have found people to help a lot closer to home.

    These ministers set up their signature yellow tent at the 22nd annual Winter Wonderland in downtown Clearwater. While there, they have helped more than 140 people achieve a better sense of well-being and a more positive outlook on life, says Judy Fagerman, the Director of the area's Volunteer Ministers.

    "Holidays are a special time for giving and compassion," said Fagerman, who manages the group as a part of her duties at the Church of Scientology of Tampa. "I always look forward to this time of year and having this wonderful setting at Winter Wonderland which allows the Scientology Volunteer Ministers the unique opportunity to give to the Community. We offering Scientology assists to anyone who wants one."

    These assists, said Ms. Fagerman, are processes that successfully help people to overcome the stress or trauma associated with illness or injury; as well as helping to restore energy to people who are feeling any ill-effects from the season.

    "A woman who came to our tent had terrible over back pain and could barely sit," said Ms. Fagerman. "One of our Volunteer Ministers gave her an assist which totally handled the pain. The woman said it was miracle and immediately told other people near the tent to try it. It is amazing what an assist can do."

    Per their website, the Volunteer Ministers were established in 1973 by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. The Volunteer Ministers are trained to help others in many areas of life and provide this assistance free to any who ask for it. The Volunteer Ministers of Tampa Bay hold weekly office hours on Fridays from 1 - 6pm in the St. Petersburg Life Improvement Center at 336 1st Avenue North.

    Winter Wonderland is organized every year by the Clearwater Community Volunteers. The Alpine Village display brings thousands of visitors every year, and also raises funds and donations of food and toys for area charities.
