While in Surigao, Keith also participated in the CFGM annual convention, speaking to more than 700 delegates and delivering multiple sermons and presentations on a daily basis.
During the second week of the mission, Keith — as president of the Independent Assemblies-U.S. (IA) Executive Board — visited the Independent Assemblies-Philippines and the Asian School of Christian Ministry (ASCM) in Dumaguete, a city on the island of Negros Oriental. The Independent Assemblies-U.S. is an evangelical organization of 140 Christian churches in the U.S. which provides a monthly financial contribution to the IA-Philippines to conduct its evangelical mission in the Philippines.
Keith addressed the delegates at the IA-Philippines annual convention and participated in the ASCM Bible School graduation that included approximately 30 students.
While there, Keith also met with Bobby Pino, president of the International Assemblies-Philippines, an organization with 90 member churches, and IA-US Director of World Missions Pastor Robert Johnson of Blackwell, who delivered the commencement address at the ASCM Bible School graduation ceremony. Johnson was instrumental in founding the IA-Philippines 25 years ago.
Now back in Ada, Keith has provided an update on the Philippines mission trip to the LCC congregation, sharing photographs and commentary on the 2013 event and the mission he began in 1992 and plans to continue in future years.
