Iris Global is a holistic ministry that Rolland and Heidi Baker began in 1980 as they took small evangelistic street drama teams to Asia on short-term mission trips. Their emphasis was the creative presentation of the Gospel, and heir ministry grew greatly. But they were so impacted by the condition of the poor that they changed direction drastically and began to stop for the one and prove the love of God by first addressing the temporal needs of the broken and humble, "the least of these." They focused on the bottom of society rather than the top. Now, after coming to Africa and starting with street beggar children in 1995, they have seen a people movement spread across the ten provinces of Mozambique. Massive desperation for God rising out of a long history of repression, poverty and natural disasters has fueled revival, one that is sparking more fire in nations around the world. And signs and wonders are following all the way.
