Irwin felt that was the finish of the issue, however only a few months after the fact, the congregation sorted out a major big name pressed gathering for neighborhood entrepreneurs and chamber authorities.
In Spring, Scientology pioneer David Miscavige flew in uncommonly, and superstar Scientologists John Travolta, spouse Kelly Preston, and Kirstie Back street additionally showed up.
