Mozambique Floods Help Bring Revival

The recent torrential floods that washed over Mozambique devastated infrastructures and have left tens of thousands of people without homes and in need of food.

But missionaries Rolland and Heidi Baker, who lead Iris Ministries in Mozambique, said the widespread destruction has also caused residents to be more open to hearing about Jesus.

“No one resists the gospel,” Rolland Baker said. “Everyone is eagerly listening to every word, responding to every call, wanting prayer for everything.”

The prayer requests are numerous, he said, as many people have gone without food for weeks and are living in huts made from sticks and grass. Many also are very sick or have died from diseases that have started to spread. Iris Ministries is helping to meet physical needs while some Mozambican pastors are praying for residents.

Together, the efforts are bringing a glimmer of hope, Baker said. One result is that they have received several reports of physical healing, he said. “We always have good news,” Baker said. “We tell the people, ‘Jesus knows your suffering.’ Through all of this we will seek Him more, and He will reveal Himself more than we ever thought He would.”

The Bakers say that although God is moving in this southeastern African country much of the promised relief has yet to arrive and area residents need humanitarian support from Christians abroad. To learn more about assisting Iris Ministries’ relief work, log on at
