Christmas Below the Equator

We hope you are getting ready for a wonderful Advent Season as we are here. As we approach Christmas we are also making our way into the summer months here below the equator. It is a bit different celebrating Christmas in the summer, but growing up in Louisiana I can remember several Christmases when my brother and I were wearing shorts on Christmas day, so it is not too weird. Just as we do in the U.S., Peruvians enjoy the tradition of drinking hot chocolate during the Christmas season, the difference is they are sweating as they drink it.

Hope you enjoy these recent pictures of family life. Anyone who has ever tried to take a Christmas family picture will appreciate these first few. Since we have no A.C. in our house or in the taxi’s we ride in, we have also been enjoying some swimming.

It only cost about $.80 or 3 stamps to send us a Christmas card, we would love to hear from you!! Our mailing address:

Merry Christmas and Much Love,


O.k. Abbie, no silly faces. . .

Everyone look at the camera please. . . .

That’s a good “cheese” Adeline

  1. Allen and Sandi, What a beautiful family you have!!! I just wanted to encourage you that prayers are being sent up for you and your ministry in peru. I hope that the Christmas Below the Equator brings as many grins and smiles to the peruvians you’ll be serving as did the pictures of you and your three beautiful girls did for me. Hope all is well and take care.Reid
