Wedding pictures

Last month, one of the staff members of the church in Svay Pak got married.  Weddings are a boisterous event with a big tent, loud music, and everyone dressed in fancy gowns! Here are a few fun pictures from the wedding.

Hopefully the video gives you an idea of the scope of Khmer weddings--big, loud and full of entertainment!

Tianjin visitors

Last month we had three of our dear friends visit us from Tianjin, China (where Kim, Becki and Rachel all met many years ago).  They brought suitcases full of goodies and hearts eager to serve.  Here are a few pictures of our time together.  

Kim and Rachel with all the wonderful donations for the school.

Kim and Barb in a tuktuk.

Four people, three shelves, two baskets and one dog=one very full tuktuk!
