Lillian Keyes


At the first New Testament Church, 16-year-old Lillian Keyes hands a note to Pastor Smale telling him, “Thus saith the Lord…you have grieved the Holy Ghost.” Smale is upset and writes a response to Dr. And Mrs. Keyes suggesting Lillian has gone off into fanaticism. Dr. Keyes is deeply offended. Meanwhile, Charles F. Parham leaves Kansas for Zion, Illinois, arriving the next day. His detour to Zion will last about 6 weeks.
