Love Like Fire
Author: Cassandra Soars
The Story of Heidi Baker, Mother to a Million Orphans
CASSANDRA SOARS RELAYS A TRUE STORY THAT EMBODIES FAITH AND HEALING; the joy of community; freedom from oppression, sexism, and poverty; and what love truly looks like. Love Like Fire is the timely, inspiring story of Heidi Baker, a modern-day Mother Teresa who embodies self-sacrifice and love. Since founding the non-profit IRIS Ministries with her husband, Rolland, Heidi has served tirelessly in Mozambique, continuing her work even after Rolland was diagnosed with dementia, the doctors giving him a death sentence. The book tells of Rolland’s miraculous healing and the incredible impact the Bakers have made. IRIS Ministries now includes free health clinics that service the poor and sick, feeding programs, primary and secondary schools, and over five thousand churches in Mozambique and more than ten thousand churches in over twenty nations.
