Today Art DeLeon, Jesus follower and founder of 10 Toes Down joins the team to share his freedom story! Art’s journey started in Saginaw, MI and led to Holland, MI when he was 10. At 15, he joined the Latin Kings. In 1999 gang violence broke out and Art was sent to prison for his part in the violence. After 5 years, he was back on the streets of Holland channeling his anger into mixed martial arts. But he couldn’t shake the gang. In 2012 the Feds stormed Holland arresting 31 Latin Kings, including Art. Back in prison Art encountered the Lord Jesus. He told his Latin Kings brothers that he was done, and they put a hit out on his life. Art stood his ground 10 toes down and Jesus delivered him. Now, out of prison, Art’s on mission with Jesus to bring hope to the broken, the last, the least, the forgotten. You know, the ones Jesus loves. If you’re one of the broken, Art has a message for you toward the end of today’s show.
