A Blue Bag Trip To South Africa With Madubula Safaris

by Libby Gear

My dad helped me arrange a Blue Bag for our recent trip to South Africa with Madubula Safaris.  Madubula actually had a blue bag that had been left with them from a previous trip, so we were able to fill two bags with jerseys, socks and shoes for all 24 students of this small school in the Eastern Cape.  We also managed to have a few sweets packed in!  Our trip was during a school holiday, but fortunately the teacher actually arranged to have almost all the kids come back, so we got to spend time with them.  We played soccer with them for a while, and then they sang and danced for us.  Before we left for the day, I got to pray over their students and teachers.  It was a great afternoon.  I have been fortunate enough to make several mission trips in the past and just being able to bring a smile to their faces made the whole trip for me.
