Compelled by Love, the true story of the ministry of Heidi and Rolland Baker in the war-torn, poverty and disease-stricken country of Mozambique, chronicles twenty-seven years of ministry among the poorest people on earth. The book is based upon the beatitudes as seen through the eyes of third-world pastors and missionaries. The Bakers have experienced God’s miraculous provision of food to thousands, brought physical healing and spiritual wholeness to His poorest children, and witnessed the transformed hearts of people caught in desperate life or death situations. Their stories prove the reality of God’s kingdom on earth, and demonstrate how to transform this world through the power of love.
Rolland and Heidi Baker, founders of Iris Ministries, served as missionaries in Indonesia and Hong Kong before following God’s calling in 1995 to Mozambique. Having faced overwhelming need, the Baker now watch God provide miraculously for almost 2,000 children at their centers. Iris Ministries has expanded to more than 5,000 churches all over Mozambique and neighboring countries. The Bakers are the authors of Almost Enough and Expecting Miracles.
