Heidi is a Christian missionary and with her husband Rolland, co-founder of Iris Global and the author of several books. Together with Rolland, Heidi founded Iris Global in 1980, a non-profit Christian ministry dedicated to Jesus and service, especially among the poor. After twelve years ministering in Asia, they went to London to complete their doctoral degrees at King's College. In 1995 the Baker’s started ministering to poor and homeless children in Mozambique. Beginning with nothing, the ministry has expanded to include well-drilling, free health clinics, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, cottage industries, 5000 churches in Mozambique and a total of over 8,000 churches in over 20 nations. There are multiple Iris 'bases' with Bible schools, as well as community outreaches and top-ranked public schools. The core value and message of the Baker’s ministry is showing God's love by stopping for the one.
