Dennis O'Donnell said he found love for God and poetry while spending time in federal prison.
Not long after he was released, O'Donnell said he returned home to Butte and lived as a homeless man on the streets. He said he worked to inspire others through the Christian faith and his memorized hometown poetry.
After over 5 years of living under bridges and in small enclosures around the Mining City, O'Donnell says he now has his own home in Centerville. But this home won't keep him off the streets--O'Donnell feels it is his purpose to share his faith with those who truly need it through what he calls his street preaching ministry.
