Lucas and Paula Ferro are serving the Lord with AMG Guatemala. They have two children, Zoe and Tomás. They have been missionaries in Guatemala since 2011. Lucas is Argentinian, Paula is Guatemalan, and their two children are also Guatemalan. Lucas is currently serving as the Spiritual Director at AMG Guatemala, helping to connect with local churches and overseeing Christian education and spiritual care programs. Paula is helping with art classes for the kids at “the workshop,” a special class for teenagers that didn’t have the opportunity of going to school as children. Most of them are in first grade and are between 12 and 17 years old. Paula is an architect, so she also helps with construction projects. Lucas and Paula also serve in the local church as youth pastors. “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” 1 John 4:9 NIV

Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. The majority religion is Christianity and is primarily Roman Catholic. Families in Guatemala suffer from many difficult circumstances such as drug use, alcoholism, physical violence, broken homes, and malnourishment. Often children are forced to begin working at an early age. Many families are extremely poor, live in small dilapidated homes and don’t make enough to provide for their physical needs.
