Heidi Baker

Pemba, Mozambique

A laid-down lover of Jesus. Rolland and I founded Iris Global (called Iris Ministries at that time) in 1980, a non-profit christian ministry dedicated to Jesus and service, especially among the poor. After twelve years ministering in Asia, we left in 1992 to do PhD's at King's College London, UK. In 1995 we started a new ministry to the poor and homeless children in Mozambique. Beginning with nothing, within a matter of months we were given a dilapidated orphanage in Maputo with 80 children. From there, the ministry has expanded to include many well-drilling, free health clinics that service the poor and sick, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, cottage industries and 6000 churches in Mozambique and a total of over 10,000 churches and programs in 36 nations.

Originally from Southern California, I am now based full-time in Pemba, Mozambique.
