The Micah Challenge summons Christians around the World to join in the work of halving extreme poverty by 2015.
12 billion people live on less than $1.25 a day.
In 2000, World leaders agreed their nations should work together to reduce extreme poverty by 50% by the year 2015.
The eight millennium development goals were created.
Christians, I believe are called to be committed to the poor. We are called to look outside ourselves. We are to be a light in the darkness. Too often, I believe, we get hung up by politics, fear of government, and labels such as Democrat and Republican. We are more powerful when we stand together.
