Scientologists in yellow jackets fanned out over the island to introduce Haitians to their faith as “volunteer ministers” who claim that (with the power of touch) they can reconnect nervous systems.
It reportedly cost $400,000 to fly 80 ministers with 50 Haitian-American-doctors to the island. A minister named Sylvie from Paris explained, “when you get a sudden shock to a part of your body the energy gets stuck, so we re-establish communication within the body by touching people through their clothes, and asking people to feel the touch.” She claims that she was able to save a man’s leg from being amputated through such healing touching.

For Haitians who have had sufficient touching, they can turn to one of the solar-powered bibles supplied by The Faith Comes By Hearing.
The organization insists that action was needed to provide “faith, hope and love through God’s word in audio”.
