Retracing the Beautiful Steps is a vivid illustration of God's faithfulness to all generations of those who love Him. Rev. William Audiss was a Primitive Methodist preacher in England and America, who for over sixty years kept a spiritual diary of his preaching ministry. Rev. John M. Otis is the maternal great, great grandson of William Audiss. Primitive Methodism was known for its fervent evangelistic zeal. In his English ministry alone, William Audiss travelled 10,504 miles, taking the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to various villages in Lincolnshire, England. In 1871, he immigrated with his wife and ten children to Wisconsin where he ministered until his death in 1902. In 2008, Pastor Otis was privileged to visit England and fulfill a dream of many years to retrace the preaching steps of his great, great grandfather. He was further privileged to preach in Little Hale Methodist Chapel where William Audiss was converted and ministered. Psalm 45:11 is most fitting - "I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise Thee forever and ever." Retracing the Beautiful Steps is a vivid account of what God can accomplish through one man sold out for the glory of God. William Audiss was a bold and faithful preacher who prayed for future generations. Those prayers have been answered in the lives of many of his posterity.
