Reviews for Iris Global

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization is incredible! I have been to 3 of their bases so far and each one was so unique, yet still embodied their core values so well! The time I have spent with Iris so far, has changed my entire life!! It's so hard to put into words all that happened but all I know is my husband and I are FOREVER CHANGED because of this ministry. They are true examples of Jesus to every single person they encounter!

Iris Global is amazing! There is no one that won't be helped or supported or loved through this ministry... The continual giving and helping others is admirable. Definitely one of the best non profits out there!

I was incredibly blessed to have come to Iris Min. In Pemba 2005!! The first One they had!! Since then, they have been going strong this whole time!! This is the real deal!! Not fake! The vision of Loving One Person at a time, with the very Abba Father God's Adoptive Love because of Jesus sacrifice for our own sins!!-- is the true Heartbeat of this ministry!! Jesus Died so that there would always BE ENOUGH LOVE!! HEALING!!! FOOD!!! --- There is always enough through Jesus!! Since I have been there, my life has been transformed!!! Today, I am feeling the Abba Fathers redemptive Love for myself!! And I am able to SEE PEOPLE through the EYES OF CHRIST!!! And Love pours out!!! When I don't have enough, I am able to reach up, and take ahold of Christ!!! Because He died so that I would always have enough!! Because of This-- I am able to give to the poor around me!!! Finacially and Love them with so much hope that has been poured out upon me through this ministry!! Children have real incounters with Jesus!! Witch doctors are saved!!! Hello!!!!! Wow!!! That says a lot!! Dead are raised all the time!! Eyes see!!! Lame walk!!! The leaders Rolland and Heidi Baker-- are the most purest humble people a person could ever meet on this earth!!! They purely love love love love Jesus!!!!!! And Love His word!!! It shows!!! That is why this is Sooo successful!! And Why people show up all over the world!! When a person gives up everything to follow Jesus!! They WILL FIND HIM!!! And gain more than they can emagine!! He is an incredible unfathomable God!!! Greatest creator of all!! In Africa, is the best place to worship along side the poorest of the poor!! And see them find Jesus!! And see your own life changed!! :-D
This is superly worth investing into!!! All the way!!!! There is No sour note in it!!! They still have kept in touch with people years after graduating!! Can you emagine how many countless lives they have seen??!!! Amazing!!! God Bless and provide abundantly more then they could even ask or emagine!!!! In Jesus name!!!!!!! Amen!! ~~ Love, Hayla your shophar girl from 05'

I have personally been to their first Holy Given Schools, in Africa, and have been deeply touched by the great hands on experience!! Learning to Love one person, as Christ does! Learning to be humble and bonding with the poor! Walking side by side with them! The teachings are very applicable and beyond awesome!! I will never again be the same person that walked into that place!! And would wholeheartedly return to do it again! The Bakers are truly pure examples of Christ on this earth!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have the students live in a house there with no running water or toilets or electricity- Just like the first school experienced! :-).

I have worked with Iris for 12 years....Iris is one of the purest ministries we know- the mission is to love God and love people. The money truly goes to work of God...there are no rich CEO's, or crazy admin costs....We are honored to give our lives and our $$$ as God leads.

I have visited multiple Iris Bases around the world. They carry a true heart of Jesus to the nations. The do love so well. They have a very wholistic approach of carrying not only for the spiritual needs of a community but also the physical and emotional. I trust deeply this organization.
