ADONAI RADIO GROUP Christian AC KXOJ/TULSA morning host CRAIG WEST is spending two full days and nights living on the streets of downtown TULSA in an effort to fully understand homelessness.
WEST was dropped off on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12th at 9:40a (CT) with only the clothes on his back, a jacket and cell phone. He is phoning in reports to the station during the two days and nights. His experience concludes WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14th during KXOJ’s fundraising campaign for TULSA’s JOHN 3:16 MISSION.
“I heard the story of a CANADIAN DJ who just decided to live as a homeless person and I immediately thought ‘I have to do that!’ To me, I just felt I that I had never really understood what homelessness was, even though I had given to the homeless, supported the mission and so forth. I just knew to really understand, I would need to experience it, even just for a little bit,” said WEST.
