Meet Kelly Molloy
Board Member -
"My passion is Traveling and Experiencing New Cultures."
Kelly Molloy has spent almost her entire life in the military environment and culture, living and traveling all over the world. Her passion is traveling and experiencing new cultures. Throughout her life as a military child and spouse she has had wonderful opportunities to live and travel abroad, living in nine countries and many states within the USA. She taught elementary school during many of the different military assignments in the U.S. and overseas. One of the last assignments in the military was in Kyiv, Ukraine, where she taught sixth grade at Kyiv International School.
Kelly has been to the OBI English Camp in Ukraine many times, including leading several teams. Currently she and her husband, Jim are living in Eldoret, Kenya where Jim is flying and working for Samaritan’s Purse. She is a member of the board for an organization called, Safina Initative that is building clinics, schools and a women’s hospital in villages near Eldoret. She is also involved with East African Women’s League that raises funds to help Children’s Homes and orphanages. She has also started a Community Bible Study group in her region.
Jim and Kelly have two wonderful daughters who are both married. They also have five grandchildren they enjoy immensely. Their youngest daughter, Baylee, also spent several summers at OBI English camp in Ukraine. Kelly has also traveled with her daughter to the Horn of Africa to teach new techniques in jewelry making. Baylee has a business that works with women making jewelry, enabling them to earn a living wage.
There is no doubt in our minds that God led us to OBI. Before we left for our assignment in Ukraine, we met Rick and Caroline Grube, who lived very close to us in Virginia. After that, the connections and opportunities just kept occurring. We do not know the plans God has for us or for OBI, but we are open to whatever it is.
