John and Minori are missionaries in Pucallpa, Peru. Minori’s parents were missionaries to Lima and she has lived all over the world, including Japan, Costa Rica, and Ecuador. John and Minori have been serving with SAM since the late 80s.
John is the field administrator for SAM Peru and Minori is the director of SAM Academy, a k-12 MK school in Pucallpa. They also host short-term project teams and summer teams made up of college-age students to allow them the experience of SAM’s various ministries in Peru. John and Minori see these shorter periods of engagement for young people as great recruiting tools for long-term missionary service.
