we should travel with people as they search for the good, the true and the beautiful...

We are relieved and excited to announce that 3 Net Buddies from Nkosi's Haven are in Pittsburgh and New York City to visit their video mentors!  Keneilwe, Lucky and Christina arrived in Pittsburgh on Friday, June 11th and were greeted by video mentors, Lori and Will Allison, Betsy and Alan Hohlfelder and Liz DeVito!  The shouts of joy and the tears of recognition were a wonder to behold.

Together with Zoleka Petse, IF SA Coordinator, the Net Buddies are seeing the sights in Pittsburgh and New York City.  In addtion to soaking up all the love and wonder of finally seeing their one another, Net Buddies and their video mentors are acting as goodwill ambassadors for the wonderful mission of IF.

In Pittsburgh there is a traditional South African Braai (or barbeque) and a trip to Kennywood, a local amusement park, where Net Buddies will meet the Infinite Family community of mentors, supporters and friends.

In NYC, Net Buddies will attend a picnic in Central Park as well as attend a rooftop event at the home of Chris Boeke and Bill Jenks, long time supporters and IF Board member.

I will be posting excerpts from Lucky, Christina, Keneilwe and Zoleka's blog right here, so keep coming back!

We're posting pictures to the Infinite Family Facebook Page!  So check out all the wonderful experiences and insights first hand through FB!!

We are all OVER THE MOON with excitement.  We hope you'll catch a glimpse of the excitement through our blogs and photos, too!
