DALLAS -- Two pastors from the Holy Ghost Ridaz have decided to live like no one else. Pastor Diana and Lee Cadena were going to "Tent City" once a month, then once a week, giving food and tents to the homeless living under Interstate 45 near downtown.

Then Pastor Lee says he had a dream that he should live in Tent City.

After he explained to his family he wasn't losing his own house, he moved down to the underpass and pitched his own tent among other dwellers.

It's been two months and the couple have no plans of leaving any time soon. He says the hardest part of the new digs is no showers, going a week and half in his uncleanliness on the outside.
