Attendance of the ‘Investiture Ceremony of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines’, at the President’s Palace.
– IYF, Agrees MOU with the Boys Scouts of the Philippines
On the 3rd of April, there was an MOU Signing Ceremony between the IYF and the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) at the BSP headquarters in Manila. The agreement was made to open the pathway for the two organizations to work with one another in various fields including youth education.
The BSP is the oldest youth organization in the Philippines and the head of this group is powerful enough to become the President or the Vice President. That is how precious this organization is to the government.
On this day, the founder of the International Youth Fellowship (IYF) met with the National President of the BSP, Wendel Avisado.
President Avisado attended the IYF World Camp 2016 in Korea and experienced the activities of the IYF in person. In addition to this, when he had a meeting with Pastor Ock Soo Park, last February, after the meeting between Pastor Ock Soo Park and President Duterte, he had listened the gospel and received salvation. He had heard about the activities of the IYF and he had hoped that the two organizations would have the opportunity to work together. Thus, he opened his heart wide and negotiated the terms of the MOU.
Before the MOU, the representatives of the BSP had also attended the World Camp in Korea last year, with National President Avisado. The representatives observed what programs the IYF were running for the youth and what they were doing to solve the international youth problems. While witnessing the Mind Education that was taking place in the Philippines, they realized that they quickly needed to agree the MOU with the IYF in order to work together.
