“School in the Clouds is essential reading for those interested in the development of missions and the impact MK education has had on the propagation of the gospel throughout the world. Rift Valley Academy continues as an important focal point for the education of children of missionaries serving throughout Africa and a greenhouse for growing missionaries for the 21st century. Phil Dow has done an admirable job of honestly chronicling this influential institution.”–Tim Cook, Superintendent, RVA
