How Virtual Mission Experiences Can Support Your Mission
Hope’s Promise used virtual mission experiences in a creative way to support their 4 foundational purposes for facilitating in-person mission trips. Colleen Briggs shares what this looked like for them, what they’ve learned, and how they’ve used virtual mission experiences to develop advocates who help support the family-based care of orphans and vulnerable children.
Colleen Briggs earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Denver and served as a campus staff worker for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for seven years. Through Hope’s Promise, she and her husband adopted a son from Kenya in 2001 and could not forget the children they left behind. Colleen and her family volunteered with Hope’s Promise to open family style orphan homes in Kenya in 2006. She currently serves as the Director of Orphan Care, serving alongside staff in Nepal, Kenya, Zimbabwe, and Vietnam to launch and sustain families for orphaned children.
