"Today I found out that I am going to be a father! Me and my wife have been trying for several years now. However, we are a bit older than your stereotypical parents but its been to long of a wait to care at this point. So don't blame me for having this huge smile on my face little man."

"I love to draw! I like weird stuff though, see, its weird. *Shows drawing Goku.* One day I want to make my own comic or manga so I can be famous for doing what I love while being weird." -David
"I like to draw dragons but I'm not that good at it! With more practice I'll be awesome at it, just wait!" -Erick
"Admiring art is so peaceful and chaotic at the same time depending on the piece. This one here makes me feel like I'm in a western movie. So dry and hot just like Kenya. It makes me feel like I'm home.."
"What it means to be human is it's all about your experiences when you think about it, a lot of people think you got one life so you have to live it as safe as possible, but we should be enjoying life without any remorse! But mainly it's about your beliefs in aspects of your life, Just take it day by day as it comes and you'll be alright"
"I wish life could be better for me, but I am alive and by the grace of god I'm lucky enough to be fed each and everyday, but life on the streets isn't the best way to live, but life on the streets isn't the best way to live. Pero living is hard in general, que no?! I have been on the streets for 12 years now. I have a daughter who I haven't seen in 10 years, as well as my wife. It's hard to say that I choose my drug addiction over my own familia and I feel pain everyday because of my choice. However, a couple of months ago I tried committing suicide off the Coronado Bridge but when I was about to jump someone saved me. I find it interesting how someone who didn't even know me would value my life enough to stop me. I have now been looking for a job to help me get back on my feet so I can go back home to my family."
"Without God I wouldn't be here. Without God I wouldn't be able to have love, happiness, peace, etc... Everything would be meaningless. I will serve him until my death so that one day I can serve him for all of eternity. PRAISE GOD!"
“Jazz runs deep through my blood. My daddy taught me how to play when I was six years old. I never did want to play the damn thing but daddy said it would help for whenever I felt blue. About two years later he passed away and I’ve played the sax ever since. Whenever I start feeling really blue I come onto 47th street and play a tasty lick for all to hear.”
“It’s very hard to make it out here, me and my husband are both fishermen and it’s how we make our living for income and food. At times it makes my bones hurt, it hurts in hands and back. So I use a fish oil remedy to help sooth the pain.” *My mission team asks to pry for healing over her.”WOW! I just felt this joy overcome me and i don’t feel anymore pain in my body? I feel like something else was touching me besides all of you, I just feel healed all over my bod! Oh glory to god!”
