My name is Jan Hoegee. I have been happily married to Jeanette for over 27 years. We are the proud parents of 3 youngsters, Frank, Mariska and Annemiek, in the age range of 20 – 25 years. We love to go on vacation together, In the summer to the beaches of Croatia, Italy, France or Spain. In winter, we really enjoy skiing in Austria. We love the sea and of course this is not surprising for someone who has spent half his life sailing. Even now, due to my work, I am traveling a lot. This has brought me into contact with many cultures and also many “points of view” regarding faith. It is important to see, that worldwide for many, Jesus is the true savior. Sometimes it helps to have others point this out to you and help you. This is why evangelism by deed is so important. Therefore, we from our family wholeheartedly support organizations like World Vision and Mercy Ships. It is therefore an honor for me to serve on Beach Mission’s Board of Supervisors. I also wish them God’s blessing in the ministry of this beautiful calling.
