In the last few days we’ve had many adventures. On Wednesday, we started the morning early with a helicopter flight over Khayalitcha. We were able to get the ride with the doors off of the helicopter so that our footage wouldn’t be hindered at all by windows, etc. It was incredibly exciting and we got some great aerial footage for the film of where some of the players grew up.
We caught up with Peter Cooksen, the coach of the 2008 Homeless World Cup team. He took us around to organizations in his community around Atlantis and to visit and interview Vuyo, who he is still closely tied to. Vuyo is doing well in school, is in good spirits and just got back from a soccer tournament in Johannesburg where his team won first place!
We then visited Riaan at The Ark. He is also doing well. Back in school and working towards entering college, he is hopeful and energetic, still playing ball and is encouraged about taking control of his life and his future. He shared some of his new tricks for us!
As always, it’s a wonderful journey.
