Melvin & Sharon
Melvin (Field Director)
Sharon (CAM School, Helping Hands, Nkateko Craft and Discipleship)
The Kelly Family from Northern Ireland have been OMS missionaries in Mozambique since 2010. Previously, as a single, Melvin also served on the field from 2004 to 2007. Before joining OMS, Melvin worked as a Site Engineer and Site Agent with Farrans Construction. Sharon taught at Ballymena Academy before leaving to serve at the Washbasin Christian Ministry Centre in Ahoghill.
Melvin and Sharon’s passion is to see Christ transform lives and communities in Mozambique, in partnership with the church, through the establishment of strategic sustainable ministries. As an integral part of this vision they founded Transforming Lives and Communities (TLC) charity which is the umbrella organisation under which Girassol Charity Shop in Antrim continues to operate. Girassol raises much needed funds to support the ministries in Mozambique.
Melvin serves as the Field Director and is directly involved with Helping Hands ministry amongst those living with disability while Sharon mentors the leadership of the Nkateko Craft and Discipleship ministry, supports Helping Hands and CAM School.
