Iris Global is the real deal ... serving in areas often overlooked, under-served, forgotten, hopeless. I have been impacted by Iris' culture of 'Stop for the One', and the practical outworking of the fact the LOVE looks like something...Through volunteering with Iris, I have learned how to go 'low and slow', and lower still; giving serving and learning from the poorest of the poor. My time in Mozambique transformed me at a level that's hard to articulate - but which has ruined me for the ordinary. Iris Global is a FAMILY - we share a love that doesn't count the cost, which transcends continents, generations, people groups; love 'with teeth' ~ simply by obediently following Jesus together, looking out for one another and encouraging each other to be fully ourselves, fully filled with Jesus.
What a privilege!

My name is Father Andry, I am a young priest from Madagascar and l'm 34 years old. I was ordained priest on 29 December 2019. Now we have opening a new mission in the north of Madagascar and we opened an university ASJA (ATHENEE SAINT JOSEPH ANTSOHIHY) to help the poor young people to continue their academic formation and to help them to get out of the poverty. For this we have many projects to do both for infrastructures and for school fees. First for the infrastructures we want to build two dormitories (two houses for students), one for boys and one for girls. Second, Among our 280 students we have now, 210 of them fail to pay their tuition during the year. And for this we want to ask help from your association to carry out our mission for the poor and with the poor.
Aside from this, we want to ask for volunteers to teach English in the language department beyond the agronomy and the economy and trade departments. Thanks for your help and cooperation. Father Andry (Priest of the Sacred Heart of Jesus)

My time in the mission's school with Iris Global (South Africa, Mozambique and Jordan) helped shape my understanding of God's movement in different parts of the world. It helped me gain perspective of the poverty many other countries live in, and God's deep concern for the poor. My time at the mission's school also helped me learn about honoring people of other cultures. My time with Iris Global has positively impacted my understanding of the character of God (specifically His care for the poor, and the way he is moving in other countries). I would recommend this experience to every person seeking to understand God and the world better!!

One of the most transforming experiences I’ve ever lived was during my time in Mozambique with the Bakers and the Iris team. I learnt what to stop for the One and surrendering your life to Jesus actually means. I learnt about physical and spiritual hunger and thirst, and how important it is to actually desire more from the Lord. I learnt to choose the brown robe and serve others above myself.I learnt about love and compassion. Definitely, Iris Global is one of the greatest families anyone can be part of.

Iris is so amazing at stewarding both the practical side of missions work, while keeping the focus on the Presence of God. Working with them has been a joy as well, as they honor the local communities where they work very well. If you are wanting to see miracles and mighty acts if God, whilst getting to embrace the practical hands on side of missions work, then Iris is a great community to partner with.

My experience volunteering with Iris Global has been nothing but a positive one. The people within Iris have amazing hearts to serve the poor, the downtrodden and the least of those. This looks different in different cultures and one of the strengths of those within Iris is the ability to adapt, and to build up and encourage nationals within that nation. They run with love and humility into the darkest places where Jesus is needed the most, to demonstrate his love to people and communities. If you are looking for an organisation that puts love, serving, and joy at the forefront then look no further than Iris Global.

Iris is such a beautiful organization. I went to their harvest school and found such community and family. I learned so much from them about depending on God and stopping for the one. They do this by showing love though feeding the poor, helping the needed and spending time loving the orphans. When I severed with them I was able to do all these things and pray and see the sick healed and people give their lives to Jesus. Jesus is the center of all they do. I’ve been to their Tennessee and Nicaraguan bases but they have bases all over the world that carry the same heart for Jesus.
Here’s a photo of us praying for an elderly Nicaraguan women. They visit this women constantly when they minister in her town because she is all alone. They want to show her she is not alone when she has Jesus. But love also looks like visiting her when they can.

Iris is such an unique groups of laid down lovers of Jesus. It’s family who understand the great commission. Each opportunity is hand tailored by the Lord himself and I truly believe He picks the groups who come. Everything is led by the Spirit with the heart posture of truth and love. Working as one body one heart mine faith baptism all ages backgrounds ethnicity and at different parts of your walk. Coming with the right heart posture allows yourself to truly jump right in and watch God truly work through a body individually for the one infront of you and as the body of Christ all at the same time. It’s truly heavens DNA.

Excellent organisation, genuinely interested in empowering the poor and the needy . They are working passionately in the nations to end injustice and bring hope to the helpless. I would definitely recommend them as a partner organisation or recipients of funding, because they have created robust structures of accountability and pillars of excellence based on the word of God.

I highly recommend this organization to all Christians seeking to do the will of the Father. They teach people to be cultural sensitive, to be students of the people of the country they are visiting. They are not about coming in and teaching other people how to do things the Western way. They are about taking their gifts and talents and sharing them if they are accepted. Everything is done through radical love. It’s all done for and through Jesus.

I am always amazed at the operation of Iris Global!!! Spent 2 weeks in Mozambique and seeing happy, healthy kids going to school who once lived on the streets. Parents couldn’t afford them and sold girls as prostitutes as children.

People all over the world send money to help because we know it goes to those desperately in need.

Currently with the atrocities of ISSI in northern Mozambique they have stayed in country to help families that had to abandon their homes due to fighting. Minister, even hug ( inspite of COVID 19), those that have lost so much and saw so much brutality.

I know the Iris Global through Heidi Baker. She is an amazing woman who serving so many poor and needy with radical love, grace and time... Then I took an online course offered by them this month. This course is so eye-opening and I get to know more about how their staff and students sacrified themselves to help those in needs. Real cool! Amazing people and organisation!

Highly recommended and a great organization. The oupouring of God's love, kindness, humility, joyful spirit and compassion to everyone and many nations they reached out and touched is completely amazing. All the good things they do is beyond anything you can imagine and out of this world. Only a supernatural annointing, guidance and grace can lead this fantastic and wonderful, highly dedicated & loving group of people in doing God's best for the unknowns, oppress, poor, neglected, abandoned, orphans and many more. And for this people to know and find the love of Christ, knowing how much God cares for them is mind blowing! I was captivated by their deep loving desire to pull out the best of every person they encounter, bring them back to Jesus & His Kingdom. And how much they adore each precious soul and every child of God. Always Stopping for the One! Iris Global is the best and Mama Heidi & Papa Rolan are such a great blessing in this world and the Kingdom of God! Love you guys and let your deep Love for Christ keeps flowing in this generation and many more generations to come! In God Alone We Trust this World...

I wasn't sure what to expect but I was hungry to know God more deeply so I signed up for the course. I was not disappointed. Through the most genuine testimonies and teaching from the heart of the speakers I found what I was needing, confirmation of what the Lord had been speaking to me and fellowship with brothers and sisters from around the world. I was at home with my family in the Lord. Wonderful! Thanks everyone for humbling yourselves and just being real. I love you all.

I have been attending the Supernatural Missions Training course since June 8, 2020 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We still have 2 extra sessions which were added to the original course time frame. I can't say enough about the training over these past weeks. The wisdom of these leaders that love our Lord will all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength is just priceless. Each gave a little piece of themselves to the over 400 students from around the world. I am walking away with a delicious piece of each teacher. Our moderator, Will Hart, is totally on fire for our Lord and only desires that us, the students, are touched by our Lord thru the teachings of each of these leaders that our Lord has raised up. We spent a glorious amount of time in worship prior to each lesson and that in itself was blessed beyond words by our Lord.

I attended the Iris Global School in Rio in January of 2014. It is a time that has never left me. I felt God call me to this time to learn how to minister to the poorest of the poor, and He linked me up with like-minded hearts and souls...sisters and brothers in faith who have left their imprints on my heart. Iris Global is a Spirit-led ministry of humble servants who heed the Father's call where needed worldwide and I would recommend joining your heart, your ministry and your life to their work.

I've been serving with Iris Global for roughly 15 years. Naturally there have been many challenges and changes in the organization in that time, but in the many years I have been here, it continues to be inspirational to me and my family.

It's not often that one finds an NGO organization as deliberate about humbling themselves before God and helping people as Iris Global, a ministry most devoted to serving the world’s underserved, destitute, lost, broken, and forgotten. I had the privilege of joining them in their efforts during the months of June and July in the year 2018. I’m forever grateful for the faith-filled, unified Iris leaders who rallied together 200+ of us students from 30+ different nations under God’s word to ‘Follow the cloud’ from Mozambique to South Africa. Their oneness and valor as a unit shone brightly, and eternally marked my life with such splendor.

I had no agenda as I wanted To be filled afresh by beholding His presence. It's not hard to experience God when you seek Him with your heart. This is what happened for me
I had visions,became abandoned in worship and found freedom in dance.
I met family that also love Jesus presence from all over the world and now we are connected for life.
It's all about Jesus and the Love with Iris. I gave my bra to a mama in church yep it's as you picture it , off it came through my armsleeve and she was delighted.
