Interviewing Heidi Baker absolutely wrecked me.
When I think of her, I cannot help but consider the prophet Isaiah and the nation-shaping impact that one encounter with God had on his life. (See Isaiah 6.) Standing in the manifest presence of One so holy, so beautiful and so powerful, we cannot help but exclaim, “Here am I! Send me.” In short, this was Baker’s response to God’s call on her life to the nation of Mozambique.
This 30-minute interview gives you just a glimpse of how Heidi’s history-shaping ministry, Iris Ministries, was birthed—and I believe it will inspire you. The same God who called Baker to supernaturally shift the landscape of a nation is also calling you. It’s high time for us to expand our vision of what is possible and actually start agreeing with heaven that entire nations are part of the Great Commission.
Just think, if He has called us to disciple nations in the Great Commission, what’s a city? What’s a workplace? What’s a household? What’s a region? What’s a vision or dream? What’s a realm of influence? What’s an impossibility to God? When your life is deeply touched by the Burning One, I promise you, what previously seemed impossible and beyond the realm of reason starts making a lot more sense.
Baker was scheduled to do a string of interviews live from Mozambique, so I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been among the list. You will hear a little of the context during our conversation, but she and her team and the children were dealing with massive flooding in their region. People were standing in polluted water. Houses and lodging were experiencing tremendous damage. And yet this woman and her team fearlessly responded to the crisis by running toward it, not away. Only a revelation of God’s matchless power combined with a tender heart of compassion can ignite such radical boldness.
Get ready to discover why I was wrecked during this interview, as the Holy Spirit gives you a fresh understanding of what it means to encounter His presence and yet live relentlessly hungry for more.
