The couple and their children, later moved to Mozambique, in 1995, in order to begin a new ministry focused on the care of orphaned and abandoned children. Baker became sick with tuberculosis, a year later, with pneumonia. She went to a healing meeting in Toronto, Canada, despite her doctor’s recommendation. At the healing meeting, she had a vision where Jesus showed her thousands of children to feed and when she exclaimed that it was impossible to help them all, he said “There will always be enough, because I died.” After this encounter, she was healed.

Their ministry negotiated with the Mozambican government to assume financial and administrative responsibility for a former government orphanage in Chihango, near the capital city of Maputo. At the time, there were roughly 80 children present. Over time, Iris Global’s operations have expanded to include well-drilling, free health clinics, village feeding programs, the operation of primary and secondary schools, cottage industries and the founding more than 5000 churches in Mozambique, with a total of over 10,000 Iris-affiliated churches in more than 20 nations. Iris global is known for its reports of miracles. The Southern Medical Journal published an article in September 2010, presenting evidence of “significant improvements” in auditory and visual function among subjects exhibiting impairment before receiving prayer from the ministry.+

Other than their administrative duties the Bakers are also authors and frequent conference speakers, traveling worldwide to speak on Christian ministry and spirituality. Candy Gunther Brown, professor of religious studies at Indiana University, has mentioned the Bakers “among the most influential leaders in world Pentecostalism.”

  1. My wife Jean and I with our 3 children were missionaries to Taiwan Dec. 1969 until Dec. 1988 stationed in Taichung and Taipei. I came into contact with Harold Baker (Daddy Baker) while he was living in Maoli, a country town in central Taiwan.
    My point in sending this info. is for the purpose of telling about a Fellow missionary named Nick Krushnisky and I travelling to most of the remote Aboriginal villages from north to south by motor cycle and foot to give gospel tracts and preach the good news. Often we would stop by Daddy Baker’s home for a visit and prayer and he was a great encouragement to us as we were about to head out on sometimes long trips to wherever these remote villages were located. The main and outstanding part of the visit was, after a time of fellowship when we knelt down and worshipped the Lord and asked for a blessed and safe journey, the presence of the Lord was so overwhelming that we left that home with such assurance and strength and fullness of joy and looking forward to what the Lord would do. He was a great blessing to us and many and a faithful servant of the Lord right up until his death, when, that very day he strapped on his old speaker and microphone and went to the local market to sing in the Hakka language, “Believe in Jesus” and to speak to whoever would listen….My memories of a very faithful servant of Christ.
