Erik and Rachel
Erik and Rachel felt God calling them to take in orphans that have lost their parents through war and abandonment. When we first met Erik and Rachel, they were caring for 25 orphans and Erik apologetically said, “I can only take care of the 25 children and just don’t have room for anymore.” Michelle assured him that what he was doing was making a great difference for the 25 and that he did not need to take in more. Eight months later, Michelle returned to Myanmar and Erik and Rachel had squeezed in 32 orphans. Erik said, “They just no place else to go, so we couldn’t turn them away.” Now they are raising 34 orphans and their 3 children with the help of 2 other assistants.
