Briggs Celebration

Let's celebrate our friends!

One Adventure Ends, The Next Begins

In December of 2017 John and Donna Briggs received wonderful news:

After 18 years of faithfully steering the good ship MBI, the Briggs asked God for a visionary to take the helm as the new director of Mission Builders International—and God provided!

John and Donna are ecstatic that Ron Brewster will be coming on board and taking MBI to the next level. The Briggs are transitioning out of their leadership role at MBI and dreaming of what God may have for them in the future.

At MBI’s annual board of directors meeting this past March, we discussed how to adequately honor the Briggs for their steadfast commitment to recruiting and placing countless volunteers with YWAM missionaries worldwide since 2000.

We believed that the many people who have been touched by the care and character of these two saints—from board and emeritus board members to friends and colleagues—would like the opportunity to express their love and appreciation as the Briggs begin moving toward God’s new “sweet spot” for them.

Would you join us in expressing our thanks to John and Donna Briggs? You may consider participating in any or all of the following ways (see how to respond below):

  1. Write a note of thanks, appreciation, and blessing to the Briggs, either individually or together.
  2. Contribute financially to a gift fund we will present to them.

Also, if you would care to join us in celebrating their contributions and send them on with applause, tears, hugs, and slaps on the back, please join us on Friday, October 12th at 7:00 pm for a dessert reception at the Best Western Plus Flathead Lake Inn & Suites (Formerly White Oak Hotel – 4824 US-93, Kalispell, Montana).
