Graham and Heather Sutherlin are the hosts and caretakers of the Chateau ClaireFontaine. Together with their three children, they minister to our missionaries in the field by providing a safe refuge and a quiet respite.

Graham is a credentialed actuary and the President of Cedarview Inc., an actuarial consulting firm that works with health insurance companies and small businesses. He is also a talented craftsman, building wood furniture in his free time that will be handed down for generations.

Heather is an author. She enjoys cooking and a table filled with good friends.  As the hostess of Chateau ClaireFontaine, Heather is often the first person guests meet before they even arrive as she takes their reservation and helps them coordinate their travel plans. She finds joy in preparing their rooms, and sharing a home-cooked meal with guests who all arrive as strangers, but leave as friends.

Their three teenagers are excited about this big adventure and hope to bring together other teens who are living abroad into an international youth group that can encourage one another. They are avid “nerds” who enjoy video games, Youtube, anime, and helping mom come up with crazy things for her books.
