Heidi Baker is a resident in one of the world's poorest and most dangerous countries. Since 2017, ISIS-linked militants have killed over 2,600 people and displaced 700,000 more in their invasion to establish an Islamic caliphate in Mozambique's Cabo Delgado Province. Al Shabab, a militant terror group, is responsible for the dozens of terror attacks on churches in the region.
"Churches have been burned, and anyone who is not agreeing with this specific group of terrorists, whatever faith they have, their homes are being burnt as well, their crops are being burnt," Baker said. Nina Diadara, another resident of Palma, confirmed what Baker said. In a statement obtained by Faithwire after escaping an attack, Diadara said, "They were killing us, they were burning houses, and they were taking our children."
But Baker just wants to keep preaching the gospel, even amid the militant terror group. "Al Shabab, they are a frightening bunch. I'm not going to be phony, I don't want to get chopped up, I don't want to be kidnapped, I want to continue to preach this glorious gospel for many more decades." But she also said, "If you are a believer in Jesus, you are one of the first who is right on the list."
