It’s Easter again ….. and as is the norm on my blog ….. every Easter … it is hacked.  Interestingly enough every Easter for the last few years.  This year is no exception.  If you see any strange behavior or suspicious articles please be so kind to let me know at  This would be much appreciated and would help us a lot.

Meet Ladien Liebenberg 
and …. Corine van Vreden
With all that said …. it doesn’t take away any of the amazing fun and times we had at our school just before Easter.  It all actually started in July 2013 when just over 20 students from the University of Stellenbosch and Stellenbosch Congregation visited the base.  A few ladies on the team decided that it was time to transform our school.  It started with a “TING …. EUREKA MOMENT” when a young lady, Ladien Liebenberg decided that for her 30th birthday she would not expect any gift personally but would rather ask people who attended  her birthday to bring a gift for our local bush school.  They were blown away by the generous contributions and the team jumped away immediately to organize T-shirts as part of the school uniform.  Plates, hats and T-shirts were organized by Ladien (working for a publishing firm) and Corine van Vreden (Teacher).

I could hardly wait to tell the kids the good news but had to postpone the early Christmas gifts until we could organize our bush school at the beginning of the year.  So …. just before Easter …. we thought would be a great time to share stories and gifts on how GOOD GOD is.

Here are a few highlights … and believe me there were many.
