Many of our team went back to the States for Christmas. This was our first time to celebrate this special season away from family and friends. As the summer days commenced in Peru, I found myself a bit down. Most veteran missionaries say the first Christmas away from home is always the hardest. It would have been if we had not have had a wonderful visit from my father.
My dad became our surrogot Santa Claus and came to Peru bearing gifts. The girls truly enjoyed their “Dadeo” at home, in the Plaza de Armas, and on the beach. Here are some pictures from his trip.
Thanks, dad, for the great visit!
