In 2002, Micah founded Global Gateway Network, a ministry he and his wife, Nancy, share that "has a passion for helping the hurting in remote parts of the world," their website says.
This nonprofit Christian humanitarian organization works to send medical teams to care for the sick, volunteers to build homes for orphaned children, drill wells and develop clean water systems, including teaching agricultural skills.
From North Africa to India, the Middle East to Southeast Asia, the couple is passionate about changing lives and meeting the basic needs of indigenous people in crisis. To make life better for the poorest of poor is the mission.
It's a huge arena Micah Smith never could have imagined when he was a young wild cowboy. But nowadays instead of following the rodeo, he follows the heart of God.
