"whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these"
Gastón Nuñez is not just a survivor, but an overcomer. Coming to us from EFX, we watched him go from an insecure boy to a confident young man, with a heart like Jesus for the kids in the Barrio. Rejected by his earthly father, Gastón has found refuge in His Heavenly Father and has faith for other kids who were in the same situation, that they, too, can find their identity in Father God.

Lucas Viñes just joined our National Staff team this year.
His practical knowledge and quick desire to learn has quickly made him into one of Kim's right hands in regards to keeping the physical castle building running and in order. He sees things to do and figures out how to get them done.
He is currently currently stepping in as regional leader for Northern Argentina that covers the Provinces of Salta, Tucumán, Santiago de Estero and Catamarca. It is a huge area and will take all of his ingenuity to keep the ministry going in Salta and Tucuman, and start it up again in the other two provinces. Please pray for protection for him on his long travels and wisdom as he ministers God’s healing to many broken kids, and sees them set on a pathway towards Jesus’ awesome purposes for their lives.
Lucas Marin is a pastor's kid from the province of Mendoza. He is a strong evangelist who is a big help in the training weekends as well as always ready to dive into whatever ministry opportunity presents itself.

He is determined to fulfill God’s wildest dreams for his life and is not afraid to sacrifice in order to see it done.
Currently, Lucas is studying automotive engineering during the week and traveling almost every weekend to minister to teens. He is especially used to minister identity and healing to young men who are casualties of this orphaned generation.
