Jesus Shoes: Following His Footsteps Through the Latin American Mission Field is a collection of short stories from Katie Axelson during her time as a missionary on the World Race, a program that involves traveling to 11 countries over the course of 11 months. These are stories that will break your heart, make you laugh, and challenge you to encounter God in new ways. They're stories of His faithfulness, His goodness, and His love.
God calls Katie His daughter and lets her earn a living as a writer, editor, and speaker. She's striving to live a story worth telling and that story has taken her across the world as a missionary to 11 different Latin American countries in the course of 11 months.
“Jesus is using Katie in powerful ways in my life and in the lives of others. Jesus Shoes is full of compelling stories of how He used her, grew her, and wrecked her on the World Race so He could bring glory to His name across Latin America. What sets Katie apart from others having an impact on me and so many others is that she actually put some shoes on, left all that is comfortable and predictable, and went across the world to interrupt hopelessness, poverty, and death. Katie is not just a hearer of the word but a doer of the word and will be blazing a trail of hope that commands so many others to follow in her wake.” – Clint Bokelman, Adventures in Missions
