The child asked for a nickel to buy a roll. Recalling the wheat surplus back home in Oklahoma, Jones soon started Feed The Children, initially a wheat-exporting outreach that grew into one of the worlds largest and most respected charities. Year after year, it efficiently distributes food and other essentials to impoverished families throughout the United States and much of the rest of the world.In Keep Walking, Jones describes his journey from a childhood as the son of two barbers in Americas heartland to a career that takes him to war-torn countries and areas devastated by natural disasters-as well as into the halls of Congress and the offices of foreign governments to solicit support and funding. Rich in moving stories, Keep Walking offers vivid insights into the faith that moved Jones to do Gods work and shows readers that they, too, can make a difference.
