Coming from near Enniskillen in Northern Ireland, we married in 1999 and have three children – Joshua, Benjamin and Esther. Glenn was a lecturer in motor vehicle studies at Fermanagh College for ten years, having worked in a family garage business previously. He has been a Christian since 1991. Julie Anne became a Christian as a child and recommitted her life in her early teens. Before the children came along, she was a primary school teacher. Julie Anne first became familiar with MAF in the early 1980s when she lived in Tanzania with her parents and brother.
Our MAF journey
Glenn and Julie Anne served MAF in Dodoma, Tanzania, from July 2005. As Vehicle Workshop Manager, Glenn set up a stock control system, put safety procedures in place, conducted training with local staff and raised the standards of vehicle maintenance.
As well as caring for the children, Julie Anne helped in Sunday School at the Anglican Church in Dodoma and assisted with a children’s club.
During the summer of 2011, we moved to MAF Uganda, where Glenn became Dangerous Goods Officer and Vehicle Workshop Manager. At the end of 2014, we moved again – this time to Mareeba, Australia, where Glenn is training as an aircraft maintenance engineer.
