~ Erin is both the founder of Restore Ministries International— and author of several books documenting her extensive Restoration Journey that covers close to 3 decades. She says, “Blissful eternity does not need to begin when we die, it can begin today as you accept your Beloved’s proposal and become His bride. And take it from someone who has lived this way—once you become His bride—your life will never be the same!!”
Erin's mission in life is to:
- Encourage women to become His bride and be drenched in His love to heal emotionally, physically and “be set free” (John 8:36) from all addictions.
- Encourage women to become His bride and experience “all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3–4) during the wait for restoration.
- Encourage women to become His bride who choose to live a life remaining “single or else be reconciled” (1 Corinthians 7:11) “devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit” (1 Corinthians 7:34).
- Encourage women to become His bride and “take His yoke and learn from Him” (Matthew 11:29-30) when they feel it’s too difficult to follow the principles and claim His promises.
~ Yvonne in South Africa is our Afrikaans’ Minister and RMI's Managing Operations Director who eventually felt the aftermath of being raised in a non-Christian home with divorced parents in her own marriage. Her insatiable appetite for God’s Word serves as encouragement and inspiration to us all.
Yvonne is also our Afrikaans Branch Director
~ Tara, Erin's daughter, RMI's webmaster and web designer, is waiting to be married and has chosen to keep herself morally pure by not dating until the Lord reveals His choice for her husband. In the meantime, Tara is reading and rereading A Wise Woman and is working on A Wise Woman Still Single with her mom, Erin, while —experiencing the Lord as her Betrothed. Tara has been traveling extensively to meet with our Ministry Team and several partners around the world.
~ Sara, RMI's Translations Director, who was living in Turkey when she began her Restoration Journey, began by helping to translate our resources into Turkish—even though her first language is Portuguese! Though this is extraordinary, her journey and the changes He has made in her is even more so. Just looking at her face, which is clearly glowing, speaks volumes and confirms one of our most favorite verses “They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:5
Lota is also our Spanish Minister
~ Adele in Paris, and training as our French Minister, thought she had done everything she could to save her marriage, and she was sure she was the one who should lead in spiritual matters. But soon after coming to RMIEW, she discovered that her focus was on the wrong things. Once she learned to turn her focus on the Lord, her HH and His Word, she was able to enjoy Peace in all circumstances and her marriage was RESTORED.
Now Adele is our French Minister.
~ Atarah in South Africa is one of our Ministers in Africa who is filling in the gap between “standers” and truly experiencing a RESTORED marriage and is also heading up our RJ "Restoration Journey" ministry. Embracing her HH, Atarah remarried her husband, and then took an extended Sabbatical but since her return to help Yvonne and encourage us all, she has been promoted due to her ongoing love for her HH!
Read Atarah’s RESTORED Marriage Testimony, “Better for Me Then, than Now”!
Who was once also our Français Minister
~ Beverly U. in Iowa found peace and her burdens lifted once she found RMIEW who introduced her to her Heavenly Husband. Beverly says, “I didn't even realize I HAD a Heavenly Husband. I knew the concept of being the Bride of Christ, but that seemed more like the Church as a group and more for the End Times than for my daily life. Now I know my Heavenly Husband is WITH ME. I do not have to conjure Him up, by praying correctly or behaving a certain way. The only thing I need to do is TURN TO HIM. He is already with me! He WANTS me to talk with Him constantly.
Titus 2:4-5 “That they [older women] may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”
Proverbs 11:22 “As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.”
Proverbs 31:10, 25 “An excellent woman, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels” “Strength and dignity are her clothing and she smiles at the future.”
