Planning is beginning on International Ministries' 200th anniversary celebrations. The Executive Committee of the Board has a process underway with a working group to assist staff in planning. While the official anniversary is in 2014, it is quite likely that celebrations will be held across a three year period — 2010 marking the Judsons’ sailing from the US; 2013 marking their arrival in Burma and Luther Rice’s return to the US; and 2014 marking the formation of the Society. The working group will be soliciting ideas and suggestions from missionaries and others in the formation of those plans. I think it’s going to be very exciting and am eagerly looking forward to it!
