Hunt holds masters degrees in counseling, in English and in speech communications. She will also lead the Judson 200 trip to Burma in January 2013.
Burmese Karen living in Erie and the Tri-state area joined the celebration. During the gathering the congregation sang songs written by Adoniram Judson, were blessed by the Karen choir and a heard a song written by missionary Carmen Igo in honor of Adoniram Judson for the bicentennial celebration. The group learned how God has worked through time (200 years) and space (opposite sides of the world) to bring us together as one body of Christian belivers.

  History and missions is the 2012 focus of Oil Creek Association. The congregation heard ofmany opportunities to support and become involved in hands on ministry here and abroad.
