48 hours to go: churches in 69 nations pray and act with the poor

Micah Challenge has seen amazing commitments from Christians in 69 countries promising to unite for a huge day of prayer, promise and action, in order to help see half a billion people released from extreme poverty.
 
A special video message from the international director, Joel Edwards, can be viewed at www.micahchallenge.org
 

"Just a few days away from 10.10.10, we have been excited and overwhelmed by the number of Christians who are going to be part of the day of prayer, promise and action.  If it is true that the Church is the hope of the world, imagine what would happen if after 10.10.10 we do not go back to business as usual.  Beyond 10.10.10 Micah Challenge will promote the need for increased political stability globally by highlighting the need for good governance."

POST 10.10.10 Political Impact - 'Speaking up for the poor'
After 10.10.10 is over it will be tempting to go phew!... and reflect on how it all went, BUT... it's not over.  We have promised to impact 1000 politicians.  From October to January we will need you to help make those visits happen.  It's an exciting element of 10.10.10 and will support Christians in places where their voice is not easily heard.
