Erik grew up in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He moved to Oregon to attend George Fox University where he met Rhonda. Rhonda grew up in Newberg, Oregon, the hometown of George Fox. After graduating in 1994, Rhonda flew off to Japan to teach English on the JET Program. When Rhonda was planning to return to the U.S. two years later, Erik decided to fly off to Japan with the JET Program so Rhonda decided to stay in Japan, and they were married 8 months later. In 1999 they returned to Oregon for Erik to attend Multnomah Biblical Seminary which thus began a search for a way to return to Japan to fulfill God’s calling on their lives.
