Heidi Baker Emergency
March 23rd 2007 The situation in Mozambique remains
highly dangerous. Please pray for our children. Due to the missiles
hitting the center, some of our children fled to villages. Please
pray Jesus will help us find any missing children. The children
are currently being evacuated.
Recently, The Mozambican Government decided not
to declare a national emergency for the recent flooding of The Zambezia
River, despite the fact that tens-of-thousands of lives have been
displaced. Iris Ministries is one of the few relief efforts out
there. The good news is that no one is refusing Jesus. Heidi said
that everyone within the sound of a preacher's voice run to Jesus.
Miracles abound, as we are feeding approximately 30,000 people a
We are trusting Jesus completely. God recently spoke
to Heidi and said that He was going to shine a global spot light
on Mozambique. And as the government refused outside help/attention/relief,
God Himself would intervene. That which the enemy intended for evil
would be used for good. We want our entire nation transformed by
the glory of God. Nothing less.
Current news is posted at www.irismin.com. The Bakers
arrive into Maputo on Wednesday.
