The House of Dula

Abdul Wright takes a load off his feet in his new apartment. Coach Rob moved him in with the UMC van the other week. We miss big “Dula,” but he still calls us weekly, usually around 11 oclock on a Friday night or a Sunday night just to touch base. You really have to admire Abdul for his courage. For many folks who have been homeless, fear of success is a formidable obstacle. The sudden reprieve from a life of consecutive crises is a lonely silence, and in that silence you suddenly have to figure out for yourself what to do. Abdul has been applying himself to just that task. One thing Abdul has said he wants to stay committed to is soccer. He plans to play for Charlotte in the US Cup this August 17-20th. Way to go Dula!
