In August 1983, the Glennons started attending Trinity with their four children: Kurt, Cora, Keren and Josh. They were studying at the Wycliffe Linguistic Center while their children were attending Trinity Christian School. Shortly after graduating from Wycliffe their family headed overseas to Papua New Guinea. The Glennon’s work in Papua New Guinea focused primarily with the translation of the Nehan New Testament (1986 – 2011). Their ministry in that region helped the people start 10 vernacular kindergarten level schools. Upon dedication of the Nehan New Testament, John went back to school at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics in order to do an in-depth analysis of the unusual language of the Nehan people and earn his M.A. in linguistics. The Glennons currently serve as Bible translation consultants and travel between the U.S. and Papua New Guinea a couple times a year.
