Lucas, John & Minori

– subscription plan available

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 and have two children, Amy and Kenji.

John is the field administrator for SAM Peru. Minori directed SAM Academy for years and has since transitioned to focus on strategic ministry outreach involving teaching ESL and women’s Bible studies. The Lucases 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.

We seek to free missionary parents for service by providing their children with a well-rounded education and preparing them for higher education in the US and other developed nations.
