James and Ellie Carr have served in Guatemala since 2014. They serve as the Home Directors of Fundaniños, a children’s home that provides Gospel-centered care for orphaned, abused, and neglected children. They live on-site at Fundaniños with their two children, Riley and Ethan.
James previously worked as a firefighter/paramedic in the metro-Atlanta area for nearly ten years, and Ellie is a Registered Nurse who worked at a local hospital before moving to Guatemala. The two were wed in 2010, and in 2012 they felt that God was calling them to serve children in Guatemala full-time.
At Fundaniños, where they both live and work, they promote the spiritual and emotional growth of both the children and staff as well as managing day-to-day operations of the more than forty children who live there.
