Martin and Cezarina Glendenning - Eurasia

Martin and Cezarina (Cezi) Glendenning are currently serving in Büsingen, Germany/Switzerland at the Eurasia Regional Office.  Martin is the Regional Finance Coordinator and Cezi is the SDMI Coordinator for the Eurasia Region. She also helps the European Nazarene College with teaching and administrative work. 

Martin is originally from the Mid-West. He is a CPA and graduated from Mid-America Nazarene University with degrees in Accounting and Business Administration.  During his time in college, he felt God calling him towards international ministries and he began preparing himself for that call.

Cezarina is originally from Albania. In 2001, she moved to Florence, Italy where she studied, worked, and served as the NYI leader, NMI president, a church board member, and in other local ministries for seven years. In 2008, God called her to move to Germany and prepare herself for ministry at European Nazarene College, where she studied and graduated with a BA in Ministry. 

Martin and Cezi have an amazing little boy, Reuben Ilir, who was born in Germany on the 25th of September 2014. He is already a world citizen. He has an American father, an Albanian mother, and lives in Germany/Switzerland. He has already visited 9 countries and speaks his own language that only he understands.

Martin and Cezi feel blessed to be able be serving God in this beautiful place. While looking after Rueben has dramatically changed their daily activities, Martin still tries to find time to do a little mountain biking and Cezi continues to enjoy cooking, traveling, and hosting people in her home.  Having lived in several countries, she has adapted several cultural cooking styles that her family is very fortunate to take advantage of.

They consider themselves blessed and fortunate to be able to be a part of what God is doing on the Eurasia Region!
