Our call to missions

We were living a comfortable lifestyle, working in jobs we enjoyed and doing all the things a normal family did – then God called us into full-time ministry to do missions.

On Cloud Nine we have several different ways to communicate to our family while out here in the remoteness of the great Pacific.

As of right now the only means of communication is done VIA satellite’s.  We have yet to install a SSB (Single Side Band) or Ham radio on board.  Even then most of you would not be able to use that means of communications anyway!

Child Sponsorship

The Child Sponsorship Program is 100% about providing a private education for those that cannot attend the local public school due to over crowded classes or no space available at all and to pick up the remaining school age children many of the local churches have private education available.  We work with all of these churches that are Christ based to place students tuition paid into these classes.
