Series: Good News Shoes
If youre gonna run for your life,
you gotta wear the right shoes.
Pre-teen shoe model Riley Mae laces up her flaming orange Sole Fire running shoes for another ad campaignthis time in Kenya, Africa! Kenya is the perfect place for runners to train, with its high elevation and encouragement from Olympic athletes. Its also a great hiding place for Riley and her Swiftriver friends from so-called enemies back in the United States but for how long?
Adjusting to a new culture is difficult. Every chore is tiring, school is miles away, and theres always the threat of a lurking lion that can ruin everything. But after spending time with the children and Christian women in her friend Sundays remote village, Riley finds herself growing stronger and praying for God to use her to spread the good news. Her prayers are answered in exciting and startling ways when she meets an orphaned girl seeking answers at a childrens home, but also when an error in judgment causes her to stumble into a surprise meeting with the enemy.
