“Terrorists are attacking villages in the Pemba area [and] numerous people have been killed in the last few days. They are beheading people and burning small villages and more.” -Mike Bickle, IHOPKC
(Mozambique)— [CBN News] CBN News has learned Heidi Baker’s ministry Iris Global is in danger of attack by terrorists in Mozambique.

The founder of the Iris Global ministry is reportedly evacuating hundreds of students.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the International House of Prayer in Kansas City wrote about their recent contact with Baker.

“We got a call from Heidi Baker late last night from Pemba, Mozambique,” IHOPKC’s Mike Bickle wrote. “She asked IHOPKC to pray for them urgently. Terrorist are attacking villages in the Pemba area [and] numerous people have been killed in last few days. They are beheading people, and burning small villages and more. She has to move 250 students out of Pemba to Johannesburg in the next few days. Roads have been closed off in Pemba. Military are trying to protect the areas but cannot get in.” (Photo: Heidi Baker and others pray/Facebook-IHOP KC/via CBN News)

Heidi and her husband Rolland Baker have been missionaries since they were married in a small charismatic church in Southern California.

They spent 12 years in Asia and saw thousands come to Jesus. In 1995, Heidi and Rolland moved their family to Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world. The government offered them a horribly dilapidated and neglected “orphanage.” They started caring for 80 children and watched God pour out His love and provide food day after day. The Bakers now watch God provide miraculously for well over 10,000 children every day and have a network of more than 10,000 churches, Bible schools, primary schools, and remote outreach programs.

Today Heidi and Rolland’s ministry “Iris Global” has networks of churches and church-based orphan care in all ten provinces in Mozambique in addition to their bases in main cities. In recent years, they have concentrated on the Makua, a people group of four million in the north who were listed by mission researchers as “unreached and unreachable.” With tremendous help from missionaries and nationals, around two thousand churches have been planted among these people in the last eight years.

Heidi spoke to CBN News in April about her vision of revival she has seen that she called the Glory Wave.

“I saw the wave and it’s full of faces. And I thought, ‘Lord, what is that? Are those the ones coming home or the ones going out?’ And I saw they were the faces of these radical lovers of God, every tribe, tongue, and nation, who are going to go to the ends of the earth, carrying the Glory,” she stated.

Here is the Official Statement from Iris Global:

Since October 2017, there has been a group of militant extremists responsible for scores of attacks against government institutions and civilians in the north of Mozambique where we live. They are targeting anyone who opposes their brand of terror. In the last few weeks, these attacks have intensified in frequency and brutality. Each attack has involved killing and burning houses. People were beheaded in at least six villages, two of which are within two hours drive of our Pemba base. Villagers are fleeing for their lives, carrying nothing with them, and have become refugees in the bush or on offshore islands.

We are praying for peace in Mozambique and our hearts mourn for the families who have lost loved ones. Our leadership team is in constant prayer, daily evaluating the situation to determine the best precautions for our staff. Based on the current situation, we feel confident to remain home in Pemba with our missionaries and Mozambican team. However, the government has canceled visas for our Harvest School students for security reasons, and they are having to leave within a few days for South Africa where the school will continue.

Please pray with us in this troubling time for God’s strength for our brothers and sisters living all over our province of Cabo Delgado, that we can all shine more than ever in these dark days. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our admin team in California.
