Visions Beyond the Veil
by H. A. Baker


The Book

Visions Beyond The Veil by H. A. Baker is a book that documents a series of visions that some Chinese orphan children had when revival broke out in their midst. The children saw angels, demons, heaven, hell, etc. They related their experiences to missionary H. A. Baker and his wife Josephine, who oversaw the orphanage where the children lived. The visions changed the chidren's lives and behaviors. The chidren would or lay sit still for hours as if in a trance, then tney would reported their visions to the Bakers, who faithfully documented them. These visions make amazing and inspiring reading.

It is true that children can be prone to let their immaginations run away with them. But I suspect these expriences are genuine and not the figment of the child's imagination. The Chinese orphan children would spend hour after hour, day after day in visions and in the Lord's presence. Anyone who has been around childen knows that a child's attention span is short. One child, if it were particuarly willful, might be able to carry on a charade of sitting still for three or fourh hours, proposing to see visions when they were simply "pretending". But they would not be able to maintain that charade for multiple days in a row. And it would not be possible to get a whole roomful of active children to behave this way day after day. Also, if this were all the figment of a child's imagination, then it would not effect their lives and behavior on an ongoing basis. But the transformation in the children's lives is perhaps the strongest evidence of the reality of their experience.

H. A. Baker was a missionary to China operating an orphanage in the Yunnan Province beginning in the early 1920s. One day the Lord unexpectedly did a mighty outpouring of His Holy Spirit in their midst. As a result, the Chinese beggar children from his orphanage had visions that fill page after page of H.A. Baker's book, Visions Beyond The Veil. Mr. Baker purposefully did not copyright the original book so that it would live on and bless generations to come.

Rolland Baker and Iris Ministries

H.A. Baker was Rolland Baker's grandfather. Rolland, along with his wife Heidi, is currently a missionary in Mozambique. Following in his grandfather's footsteps, Rolland runs an orphanage. The Lord has given Rolland and Heidi Baker "the nation of Mozambique" in the form a powerful revival that is sweeping that nation, and the Baker's ministry has currently planted over 5,000 churches (all populated by new converts) in the last ten years. The Baker's oversee an orphanage on their main complex, in Maputo, which has over 500 children it in. Some of the children their orphanage have had divine encounters with God, similar to the visions described in his grandfather's book.
