Iris Global is truly a wonderful organization to partner with! I have seen the way they touch lives through their feeding programs, child sponsorships, and so many other tremendous outreaches worldwide. I have full confidence knowing this organization is doing what they say they are and making a global impact through their humanitarian efforts.

Iris ministries do amazing work across the world, changing lives and hearts one by one. They are an organisation ready to get their hands dirty and step into some of the darkest, hardest situations, with both practical solutions and aid and real genuine love. Love looks like something and Iris embody that beautifully.

Iris is not just a humanitarian organization it is a revelation of true love. What does love look like? Something like this.

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 volunteered with IRIS Global in 2017 and can attest to their authenticity, and uncompromising commitment towards globally impacting the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ through meeting the practical, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of the least of these. This organization beats with the same fervency, love and compassion as seen with the God of the bible. A beautiful display of a pursuit of hungry, imperfect people in love with a perfect Saviour.

I have nothing but good things to say about Iris Global. They are full of integrity and trustworthy. I spent three months on one of their Mozambique bases, then took a team back there for two weeks. Both times were incredible. Their culture is pure, fun, and motivating! They work hard and get things done. There is accountability within their staff and volunteers. I feel safe when I’m around them! When I mention Iris to others who know about them, their face lights up *every* time and they tell me something great about Iris. Looooove love love this organization: who they are, what they represent, and the good work they do.

Iris Global serves some of the most vulnerable people in the world. I have participated in many outreaches to these vulnerable areas. Iris is led with the highest integrity. Everything is done with honor, love, & care. I can say after 15 years serving with Iris Global, it is without a doubt one of the greatest NGOs ever!

I have been part of the Iris Global family for 10 years. The love and care they have for the poor, the marginalized, the difficult to reach areas of the world is unprecedented. They have the unusual ability to bring diverse groups together in one mission; rich and poor, educated and uneducated, nation with nation. My eyes and my heart have been opened, and my life profoundly affected, as a result of my relationship and my experiences with Iris. They are my heroes.

These guys are giving hope to those who have nothing, either material or spiritual. I experienced fresh peace and joy when visiting their base in Pemba for three months.

This ministry is truly life changing. I have never met people so seeking to humble themselves to find and follow the heartbeat of Jesus as those who are leading in IRIS ministries. I don’t believe anyone could work alongside/with IRIS and not be undone by seeing the love of the father poured out in and through these people.

Iris global is such an incredible organization. There is a level of excellence that the entire organization works within. You aren’t just serving with an organization but becoming part of a family when you partner or serve with Iris. From the founders to new students within the schools you can see the DNA of “stop for the one” and “love looks like something”. When you serve with Iris you know that there is integrity and love in everything you do and that you are actually doing something that will change the world.

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. I have rarely seen such commitment and love from a group of people as I see daily from Iris Global. They are focused on keeping the first things first, and are willing to give their lives for the ongoing expansion of the Gospel.

Iris has changed our lives in a hundred different ways! My husband and I met at the ministry school. They are full of the Love of God and they transformed the way I saw ministry. They love people with the love of Christ and they take the great commission literally. They love the poor in spirit they heal the broken hearted and they stop for the one in front of them. 100% recommend :)

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.

Iris is a beautiful ministry that has captured the heart of God in caring for the poor and loving the broken. I have had the privilege of volunteering my time to many projects at the Village of Joy in Mozambique. Everyday they provide a meal for village children, love the widows and preach the gospel.

I have followed this ministry for years. I did Harvest School and my whole life and world were changed for the better. I saw firsthand the integrity, commitment, and devotion to make the lives better of every person they come into contact with. They are excellent stewards and practice what they preach. Jesus is truly the center, and life, hope, and love from every program. People are fed, hearts are healed and touched, wells are drilled, people are equipped, children are educated, and people are set in families. I'm honored to give to support this ministry. Our world is better because Iris exists.

I kissed the ground at Pemba airport
On arrival May 2017
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. To see others with Gods eyes is what I gained.I love the children in the villages where we played simple games and painted mama's fingernails. It's a priceless experience.

Incredible ministry who give everything to love those that others have forgotten. They do this in every way they can through personal demonstrations of love and through providing in every area of life from caring for those who have lost their natural parents, education, healthcare, providing clean water and food to building homes and providing jobs for widows!

I attended Harvest School 18 5 years ago now! Truly THE most life changing experience of my life. I could tell my story and how crazy beautiful my time was there from the leadership, fellow students, and the beautiful Mozambican people. However, the beauty is all found because of the presence of God. Iris Global truly lives out what they say they do and more. Each leader has laid down their lives to serve and love day in and day out!

They are completely selfless and full of love for the people they are serving, teaching, and leading. From feeding thousands of children a day to equipping thousands of pastors and people all of the world with the tools they need to grow, Iris Global is true to their mission and true to the heart of Jesus through and through!!!

I had the great privilege to visit and volunteer for three months with Iris Global at their base in Mozambique. It is amazing how much of an impact Iris has had on its surrounding community. Not only do they provide food and free medical care, but they provide a place for people to feel safe and know what it’s like to be truly loved. I am very impressed with this organization and they have my full trust.
