Leslie & Brenda
OMS UK Area Representative for Northern Ireland (Leslie) UK Personnel (Brenda)
Leslie and Brenda Reid, along with their two children, Darina and Liam, served for many years with OMS in Mexico City. Leslie comes from Northern Ireland, and Brenda from Mexico.
From 2014 to 2017, Leslie ministered with a national church called UNIFAM (Families United in Christ) in an area called Cuautitlan in a support role, ministering alongside a national Pastor. Brenda was involved in ministry at home, as she home-schooled their children, Darina and Liam. She was also involved in ministry in pastoral care with both missionary ladies and nationals.
Then from 2017 until 2022, as a family they all served in a community centre in church planting. Leslie and Brenda taught English classes, their daughter Darina taught dance classes and Leslie held Discovery Bible Studies out in the community. When COVID hit they continued to minister as through moving activities to online.
In 2022, they relocated to Northern Ireland and took up ministry roles in the UK. Leslie is serving as Northern Ireland Area Representative, linking with churches, prayer groups and mission organisations. Brenda serves in the UK office as Personnel Officer, supporting missionaries as well as seeking to train and recruit new missionaries. Darina is attending college in Armagh and Liam is completing his home-school studies online.
They hope to be able to return to Mexico at some point in the future, Lord willing.
