Anna and Nathan Glenn are missionaries serving in Liberia, West Africa and they are supported by Epworth UMC.
Anna Glenn (formerly McGucken) has been a member at Epworth ever since she started out at the Epworth Children's Daycare Center. It was through her involvement at Epworth, particularly the youth group, that her faith grew and it was through participating in various mission trips with the church that her love for missions developed. Anna and Nathan currently work for Hope in the Harvest, a faith based agricultural development NGO whose vision is to see both agricultural and spiritual transformation throughout Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world.
Together they work and teach at Liberia International Christian College (LICC) in Ganta, Liberia. They teach agriculture classes, lead devotions and bible studies, oversee a research/demonstration farm, mentor local agricultural businesses and business owners, train teachers, and do outreach with farmers. They have found that in teaching agriculture, there are so many natural parallels that lend themselves to conversations about faith and they are encouraged and excited about the way to in which God has used these conversations to bring glory to His kingdom! They are passionate about continuing to teach agriculture alongside the gospel so that they can continue to help to feed both the stomach and the spirit of those who hunger and are in need of something more.
