Gerald & Melody Martins
Gerald and Melody Martins are originally from Bombay. They met while studying at St. Xavier’s College where they were both invited to be a part of a revived Catholic youth group. Gerald is a professional photographer and studied in Massachusetts, USA. Melody is a trained Montessori pre-primary educator and taught for over 12 years. On a family getaway in April 2014, through a “God-incidence” they met the relatives of another missionary and heard about FMC. Since saying “yes” to the Lord they have experienced numerous graces and miracles, exciting adventures and powerful blessings through the intercession of the Holy Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph! They completed Intake in 2015, and served initially in Malaybalay, The Philippines. After that they were in Abbeville, Louisiana and Reedsville, Wisconsin. They have five children: Elijah, Ethan, Elliana, Evan, and Emmaus. Since June 2020, they are serving in the Diocese of Savannah, Georgia alongside the Alleluia Community in the city of Augusta. Some of their ministries include the Encounter School of Ministry – Augusta campus, evangelization through the Alpha program, serving the poor through local outreach, and facilitating supernatural ministry training programs wherever the Holy Spirit leads them.
