MISSIONA2 President Brian Durrance is interviewed by Michigan Radio's, Cynthia Canty.
You wonder why, that your life was nothing but a messed up lie. It hurts to know the truth, you said that you were sure. Okay now what’s going to happen to me? Trying to stay clean, can’t get away from the question why me? A miracle is what I need. I got to be strong for both my babies. I’m going to do this, watch me.
It hasn’t been easy but I know one thing, no one is going to stop me. Life is so beautiful and I’m done living in a dark cold world. Yes I’m sure, very sure, so sure that this miracle is my cure.
God is making it happen right now. How? It’s called faith, faith is your strength. It comes from within. Yeah that’s right I win. I know devil that you are still there, but I really don’t care, because I’m not scared. I’ll look you in your face and tell you that you will not win.
Okay watch out, I’m ready for whatever devil that you got, it’s on let’s go, I did not sell you my soul. I have a miracle and it’s going to change my whole life, that’s right. Devil you lose, there is way too much for me that I have to do, try to test me, God has been with me the whole time. It’s not your life it’s mine.
So see I told you that you were not going to win, I know that I have sinned. But the best thing is, is that God does forgive, and with that I’m now about to live. It’s not ever gonna be like it used to, because God has gave me this miracle.
I have been thinking of nothing but my son. It is because of him that I changed to be someone.
And that God is amazing on how he works his miracles, it's historical, that I'm capable to be responsible, and can forgive the unforgivable.
It's all because I started to believe in him, and me. 'Cause God told me he'll set me free.
People are going to see a change whether they like it or not. Well guess what? I am here and I have fought.
I am going to make a difference because I have the patience, I am going to be what I finally want to be, and I vision myself leading people, just wait you will see.
My son is a gift from the lord. What else is he really here for? I will tell you why, don't cry, because he is love, that's where he comes from.
And to stay focused, a lot of people are gonna notice. But this is me, who I really want to be, other people can be mean, but I'm not, because that is not how love is taught.
So, thank you for listening, because you can change your life too. Just think about what you want to do.
God is nothing but purity, and I'll finally be happy living with him and my son forever and infinity.

After 5 Months of organizing, outreach and community relationship-building, the Camp Take Notice Good Neighbor Subcommittee is happy to announce the passage of an amendment that allows organizations giving away free humanitarian basic human needs items to do so without having to pay a fee for Ann Arbor City Park usage.
The Vineyard Church Homeless Outreach Program is continuing to hold Pizza in the Park at 7pm every Friday night at Liberty Square Plaza. Come by some night and celebrate with us!
Leaves of many beautiful colors falling to the ground, Clearing the view to show the Gates of Heaven.
Leaves are clearing the view to feel the warmth of the Light from God, to keep your Soul warm as fall Leaves and winter comes.
Leaves are blowing across from where you are standing; to clear the floor of the ground, getting ready to cover you knee high of Snow. You are not going to feel the cold from the snow, nor people; "you are going to feel the heat of the Light from your Soul, Because the Lord uncovered the trees leaves so you can Stay warm from the Winters cold."

HELP US PROTECT THE RIGHT TO GIVE AND RECEIVE HUMANITARIAN AID IN ANN ARBOR
MONDAY NOV 18, 2013 @ 6:45PM=
CITY HALL, ANN ARBOR

About two weeks ago, Ann Arbor's Parks & Recreation Committee voted unanimously to approve this ordinance and send it to City Council. See: http://annarborchronicle.com/2013/09/17/broader-fee-waiver-recommended-for-parks/.
This ordinance, which was proposed and pushed forward by the Camp Take Notice Subcommittee For the Right to Receive Humanitarian Aid (largely comprised of the homeless community themselves), now comes up for hearing in City Council on Monday evening, November 18, **6:45 p.m.** Your presence at city hall in support of the ordinance is very important!
This will be the first reading of the proposed amendment. It will have to go through a second reading during an A2 City Council meeting at a later date in order for this to come to a final vote.
All across the nation, cities are passing laws that restrict the passing out of food and other basic necessities in public spaces, simultaneously harming poor people and impeding the rights of others to assist in Philadelphia and New York among others. For example:
Ann Arbor's proposed ordinance protects, by means of a fee waiver, the rights of others to act in a compassionate and humane manner, while simultaneously protecting the rights of homeless and other destitute people to receive basic aid.
On November 18, City Council will meet at the following location:
301 East Huron, Ann Arbor, MI 48107
On E Huron between Fifth and Division
Come join us! Seats in the front rows are more desirable, as well as seats behind the audience-speaker's podium. This makes it easiest for council to see our supporters. One of our first speakers will ask all supporters of the ordinance amendment to stand in unison [this will be a lot of fun!].
Because these locations fill up quickly we are asking folks to show up at **6:45pm** to claim the most visible seats.
