“L. Ron Hubbard came to Asia when he was very young and he studied many other religions here,” says Executive Director Dr. Chih-Yuan (Oliver) Hsueh in the episode. “So for Scientologists all over the world, Asia is very special and a key part of Scientology.”  

Hseuh describes how all the staff of the Church are united in the common goal: to make a safe and happy society. This is why they are so committed to the use of humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church.
