Who Are We & What Are We Doing?

We are Glenn & Melissa. Together we have a small brood that tags along as we walk with God in this big world for the purpose of joining God in the redemption of His creation. Unreached people groups, specifically in Turkey, are our focus for building relationships and proclaiming the Gospel.  We’re glad you’re here to visit and we hope to hear from you in this space!

As Individuals

Glenn is a super intelligent genius who evokes profoundness every time he opens his mouth. He’s one who really thinks before he speaks which means he’s quiet a lot. He enjoys taking things apart and researching all kinds of things in order to continue learning. Food, specifically Mediterranean food, is his heart cry. He especially enjoys hiking, gardening and being active outdoors. Productivity goes a long way with him.

 

Melissa is a coffee lover who takes a long time to wake up in the morning. She enjoys quietness in the morning too but rarely gets it with the other three early-risers in the house. She’s a strong, brave risk-taker who secretly wants to be a chef. A life-long learner, she thrives when she is finding out new things on topics that she’s passionate about. Those topics can range from rock climbing to branding cattle. She’s deeply engaged with social justice issues of human trafficking & refugee care. She also enjoys hiking, reading/writing, and warm days outside.

 

Sweetpea is our beautiful and smart daughter. She enjoys reading stories, playing, hugging Mommy and watching movies. Her favorite place to go is Colorado but she likes the beach too. Snack time is one of her favorite activities. She constantly sings, classical music is her favorite and she is learning the piano. Sleeping is her favorite pastime.

 

Spunkmeister is our joyous warrior. He’s the happiest kid you’ll ever meet. He enjoys playing with swords, dinosaurs, legos and his sister (though she doesn’t reciprocate quite a bit of the time). He’s also a master of making guns out of peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. He always has a joke and he loves to be helpful so, most of the time, he helps set the table because he’s willing to work. He loves sports and has a great arm for throwing balls.
