This is the fundraising effort to send Hannah Strasser to Ethiopia for a mission trip in accompaniment with Brookdale Church.

Dear friends and family,
I’m preparing for my very first mission trip and I’m so excited. This coming March I will be traveling to Ethiopia with members of Brookdale Church, some St. Joseph Christian School seniors and a few other interested community members.
We are traveling to Addis Adaba, Ethiopia for seven days to work with two schools, Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory, as well as assist with various other projects such as the Addis Street Ministry and Street/soccer ministry. We will be working on the grounds, helping the children and teachers in any way necessary, as well as completing one big project. As of now the plan is to help the schools build a chicken coup, which will help the community members with eggs, food and nourishment. We will also enjoy our time getting to know the children and absorbing the country and culture of Ethiopia.
The cost for the trip is $2400 and will cover all travel and lodging expenses as well as my Visa fee. The installment deadlines for the trip are listed below:

November 1: $200
January 10: $600
February 10: $800
March 11: $800

I have set the deadlines on the Web site so they will send the money to Brookdale on time, but will make sure to subtract how much I have already raised from the total each time after an installment is paid!

I am so excited to embark on this journey and share it with all of you! Any support you can offer is appreciated more than you know. If you feel like you can help me financially reach my goal we have set up a Web site where you can donate. The address is My blog, also listed on the web site will be up and running so you all can keep up with my progress and information on the trip!
If you feel more comfortable writing a check to the cause please make your donations out to Brookdale Church. In the MEMO area write Ethiopia and please put my name on the front of the envelope, otherwise your donation won’t get credited to my account. You can mail/deliver your donation to:
4703 North Lakewood Drive
St. Joseph, MO 64506
Thank you again for supporting me and this journey! I’m so grateful for this opportunity and for the wonderful people who are helping with it!
