Oscar Siema Mmbali

Director, FUM in Belize

Oscar Siema Mmbali serves as the first pastoral minister for the Friends work in Belize. Oscar is a member of Nairobi Yearly Meeting, in Kenya. He first learned of FUM’s work in Belize in 2004 through reading articles in Quaker Life magazine while a student at Friends Theological College, and has felt a persistent call to serve in Belize ever since.

Oscar trained for pastoral ministry at FTC and St. Paul’s University, and worked with Nairobi Yearly Meeting as a pastor and as a church planter among the Maasai. Before beginning his ministry in Belize, Oscar lived in Bangkok, Thailand, studying for a PhD in International Development and working as a researcher for Transparency Thailand. He also volunteered as a chaplain for the Kenyan embassy in Thailand, visiting Kenyan nationals who were imprisoned, in detention centers, or were victims of human trafficking.
