Hello! I’m Brynnan de Encio and I am currently a college student studying to become an elementary school teacher. God has placed the desire in my heart to do ministry overseas, primarily with children, and I am so excited to be a vessel for the Lord in the future to serve wherever He calls me to. I have been to Ethiopia with the Breakfast Club before and I can’t wait to reunite with the kids and offer any skills I have in order to be an example of Christ’s hope & compassion. Any support for this summer trip, whether it be in prayer or financially, would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you & God bless!

Hello! I am Makena Weaver and I am 19 years old. My first trip to Ethiopia I fell completely in love with the culture, food , and especially the people. I have served in other countries but after being at Breakfast Club I know Africa is where my heart is at. The Breakfast Club has given me the opportunity to pursue this passion to serve in Ethiopia even further and I am so thankful. If you would like to support me as well on this journey whether it would be monetary or prayer it would mean the world to me!  Thank You!

"Hello! My name is Seth McLaughlin. I'm a senior at Temecula Valley. Why do I want to go to Ethiopia? The answer is simple. When the teacher asks the class "What did you do over winter break?", I want to have the coolest answer. For real though, I believe that immersing myself in different cultures and lifestyles is one of the best ways to become a wiser and more understanding person. In addition, I'd love the opportunity to spend time with these kids and hopefully make a difference. Thank you for helping me achieve my goal! Plus, if you donate to me, email me at and I will write you a personalized limerick. What a deal!!"



Traveling to Africa is something that I’ve always seen myself doing; I just never knew how or when it was supposed to happen. Once I became involved in the Breakfast Club though, I felt an almost instant connection to the foundation’s purpose, and realized that this was the opportunity I had sought out for so long, which has left me with no other option but to go to Ethiopia! Please support me in this journey that I plan to embark on this upcoming December- I’m beyond excited to reach other parts of the world and to help the impoverished children in Ethiopia who not only need breakfast, but love and compassion from others- Thank you!
