I'm waiting... waiting....
Isn't a narconon and mission located in Nepal? If so I wonder what condition the cults buildings are in
Anti-drug campaign launched in Nepal June 7, 2012, ANI, Yahoo News India
They need VMs there to drink the water, eat the food and provide effective help to the people there by handing out TWTH booklets, poking the people with broken limbs and saying "feel my finger" and disrupting any psyche operations in the area.
Another thing, since that is an earthquake area, it might be a good idea not to build buildings that will come crumbling down and kill the people inside them when an earthquake happens.
The wait is over. Less than 24 hours!

Scientology Volunteer Minister And EMT Shannon Barnes Going To Nepal
Scientologist Shannon Barnes is heading to Nepal to help with the earthquake relief effort. In addition to being a Volunteer Minister, he is a trained Emergency Medical Technician. Scientologists have set up a Gofundme page to help him with expenses while he works in Nepal.
He has decided to fly out early this coming week (Monday or Tuesday, 27th or 28th) to immediately get on the ground and start doing everything he can do to help. He plans to be there for at least a month. He needs our help to make sure that his personal finances and such are handled while he is gone. We have over estimated the amount needed, the more we can raise the longer he can stay. We do not want him to worry about a pocketbook when he is out saving lives.
Nepal must be warned about VM's ..toot sweet!
OK, that's one... ONE... person so far... yet over four thousand dead.
What city/county does he work for here in the US?
Sec Check made no mention of where Shannon is located.
Cult completions has nothing.
An EMT, eh?
That is better than I expected.
As usual this will not be financed by the Church of Scientology but instead individual Scientologists are expected to pay for this. With all the money Miscavige rakes in you would think he could at least pay for the expenses of this one silly Scilon VM.
As usual not one Scilon even questions the fact that they have to pay for such things: this VM's expenses, Ideal Orgs, war chests, etc.
Tag them! Tag them all and Xenu will know his own!
Alarming Allegations Against Scientology Church & School March 8, 2011, Ryan Abbott, Courthouse News Service
9. Shannon Barnes. Same Sea Org day as above. Shannon drives a Jet Ski recklessly into concrete side of lake going 50 MPH destroying Jet Ski and almost killing himself and a passenger. After recovering and deciding that he was not good enough to be at Gold, drinks large bottle of bleach. Survives suicide attempt but it was confirmed that he was not good enough for Gold and he was sent to LA to work in PAC.
For the lulz, someone with a facebook account may want to post some of this onto Shannon's Gofundme page:
Is he really a trained Emergency Medical Technician, or is he just familiar with EMTs from the number of calls to save him?
So this Go fund me page
How much will go in his own pocket and UPLINES?
I am thinking ZILCH will go to any Nepal effort. He will probably fly there and stay in the hotel and take a few promo shots and go back to the hotel
Want to help Nepal? Follow these five rules of disaster charity
By Doug Saunders, The Globe and Mail, April 28, 2015
On Dec. 27, 2004, I arrived at the remains of a beachside town in northeastern Sri Lanka. The first person I encountered there, standing blank and motionless outside an improvised shelter, was a woman who less than a day earlier had seen her two small children ripped from her arms by a tsunami, as she tried desperately to hold them above water.
I could not think of anything to say to her. During the next two hours, I would meet at least a dozen parents who had endured exactly this horror, and hundreds more people who could not find their families. The beach was speckled with corpses, most of them children, and dotted with adults looking vainly into the ocean for their loved ones.
It was three days before any aid arrived in this region – and the first aid trucks to reach this largely Muslim fishing village were from the Church of Scientology. Their assistance came with copies of Dianetics and overt conversion efforts, which were met with vacant stares. Christian and Muslim agencies were far more ethical and didn’t proselytize, but still sent the wrong message. Your religion probably preaches giving (most do), but getting your faith mixed up with your charity can cause people to lose hope.
Just promo shots would be enough. We don't them to start poking the injured with "feel my finger, feel my finger, thank you!".
Scientology Response In Nepal | Sec Check
The tragic earthquake in Nepal has left many Scientology watchers wondering when and where the Volunteer Ministers will make their appearance, and if they will help the relief effort or get in the way with a “touch assist” tent.
Yesterday, Scientologist Cary Goulston put out a call for 100 Volunteer Ministers to go to Nepal. Goulston has spent years visiting many parts of the world to create new Scientology groups.
His posts received only one reply of an offer to travel to Nepal, but that didn’t stop today’s blog post from the Volunteer Ministers, Scientology Volunteer Ministers to Send 100 Volunteers to Nepal to Aid in Earthquake Disaster Rescue and Response.
The full article is here, with open comments:

"The researchers at whyweprotest.net reported that Barnes is a former Sea Org member, and has survived a suicide attempt while at Gold base near Hemet, California."
That's me the researcher!

Church of Scientology to Donate Yellow VM Shirts to Victims of Nepal Earthquake | Scientology 411
The Church of Scientology, once again living up to its reputation as the only humanitarian organization in the world that offers real help to those in need, has announced that it will be donating yellow volunteer minister t-shirts to assist the victims of the terrible earthquake Nepal recently suffered. Church spokesperson Karin Kapow elaborates with the following details.
“While other so-called ‘humanitarian’ organizations are offering their typical wog and psych-based solutions to what is needed and wanted in Nepal, we recognize that the most important thing to survivors of this disaster is to have a bright and cheery shirt to wear while digging out bodies from rubble and such. Food and water mean little when one is not in an uplifted ‘theta’ mood. Our bright yellow shirts are infused with theta thanks to the happy children who lovingly make them 18 hours per day, 7 days a week in Sea Org work camps.”
“All we ask is that recipients take group photos of themselves wearing our high quality shirts and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org where we will use them in internal events and press releases. Recipients will also be kindly added to our informative mailing lists since they will now be considered instant-hatted Scientology volunteer ministers!”

Fucking cult of fuckery, a couple of billion in assets, millions in cash squirreled away, and claiming 'charitable' status, and yet they send people begging on a go-fund-me? Hard to believe the members cannot see what a sham it is, hell, why isn't Johnny T. flying over to the nearest airstrip with a plane-load of medical supplies paid for by COS? (*hint* money flowing out of CoS is like sucking a straw in the middle of the sahara for a drop of water.) Miscavige, with a claimed net worth of over 50 million contributes what to the planet except a load of horse poop?
I can imagine the joy of the Red Cross people~ Quick! Hide everything, here come the VMs yellow-shirts! Remember Haiti?
Something you'll never hear from any SO scilon or reg "OMG< there's a crisis, 'Take that money your spending on *insert blah-blah bullshit course here* and give it to Oxfam asap, there are people to save!'

They state that a group of rescue specialists "Los Topos" from Mexico were trained as VMs - maybe they can still be educated about the nature of Co$?
hate this fucker!
Thank you Nicole!!!!
Love this. It would be more funnier if it wasn't so true
Here's a press release from the cult:
Scientology Volunteer Ministers Mobilize Relief Effort Following Devastating Quake in Nepal
May 5, 2015
Within 24 hours of the deadly and destructive 7.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked Nepal on April 25, Scientology's Volunteer Ministers mobilized emergency response teams in the nation's capital of Kathmandu to assist in combing the rubble for survivors and distributing needed supplies in the ravaged Asian country.
Here's an excerpt:
One Volunteer Minister who traveled to Nepal from Taiwan reported the following from the scene: "A person I have just given an assist to — she lost her husband and children. She was just wandering around her house that had collapsed and was understandably very sad. She said she wanted an assist, so I proceeded." He described that after just a few minutes, the woman was visibly brighter and felt for the first time since the earthquake she could begin to come to grips with what happened.
There's one comment so far:
These "Volunteer Ministers" don't do anything other than offer "touch assists."
They offer no real help, no food, no water, no material support of any kind. The idea that these assists do anything of consequence is both laughable and insulting to the real aid workers trying to help the Nepalese people.
They are there as a photo-op to raise money from their own members. That is all.
I thought Nepal was already telling body search teams to leave on account of that the bodies will be already dead?
No way are they going to allow some VMs to wander around poking people and sucking up resources.
VMs are either stealing other people's photos, or taking picture elsewhere.
Scientology Nepal Disaster Response Team Members Share Story of Heartbreak and Humanity on the Ground
Doesn't that read like a Haiti Big Win story that they repeated for Nepal?
Disqus comments open.
Wait a minute. They're in Nepal, the UN disaster headquarters is in Nepal, but they had to go through a VM Coordinator in Los Angeles to contact the UN disaster headquarters???
My Mark XX Stink-O-Meter is pegging out on this one.
Why don't they do some good and help with this? Those LA Scientology people can arrange some help surely.
I've assumed from the outset that this is the reason that the cult is in Nepal.
Here are two more updates:
IAS Volunteer Minister Scam | Mike Rinder
Scientology Responds In Nepal 5 | Sec Check
A major earthquake hits Nepal, and these guys go to the local Walmart in Kathmandu, days after the earthquake, and buy all that stuff?? I don't think so.
This definately needs an IRS, and possibly state, investigation. Money raised for specific projects, e.g,, has to be spent on that project. If any of those funds ends up in IAS, or other front group, hands it's called FRAUD.
According to Rueters on May 10th:
"Qatar donates 60 generators to the Nepal Red Cross Society for distribution to quake-hit areas"
Likely where the generators really came from. (The video showed a Stanley generator, and the VM picture had a different brand, but with all those boxes, there were probably some non-Stanley ones.)
