Contact Wendy Lorenz

The Lorenz family lives just outside the capital city of San José, Costa Rica. Wendy works throughout Latin America with missionary children and families. She also leads a global Third Culture Kids (TCK) team, providing our FMWM missionary parents with encouragement and resources. She believes missionaries can focus more intensely on the ministry work when they sense their family is doing well. Wendy’s ministry helps missionary parents navigate some of the uniqueness of their child’s experience as a TCK.

Glenn served the Latin America Area for several years. In 2022 he became the assistant area director of Africa. His primary responsibility is recruiting, onboarding, training and coaching a team of long-term residential missionaries for West Africa.

Children: Libby, Isaac, Jakin, Ellie
