Afternoon Pics at the Church

Here are some pictures from our first wedding service in Phnom Penh...

Some morning wedding pics in the park

In the morning of our wedding (Feb 7), we went to Hun Sen Park and had a lot of pics taken... Independence Monument is in the background... some of the pics were not that great, but for those of you who like wedding pics, you'll love it...

Killing a coconut

After the funeral in KT, I learned how to get the milk from a coconut, but it was more difficult than it looks... didn't help that the knife/hatchet wasn't very sharp...

Our SECOND wedding...

We had two weddings... one in Phnom Penh for all of our friends and co-workers that live here, and then a second one in Kompong Thom for all of Seda's relatives and neighbors from when she was growing up. Because of some problems with my computer, I have not been able to get the pictures from the first wedding yet (although you can see the pictures that John McC took below)... but here are a few from the second wedding in Kompong Thom... some of them were Photoshopped by the photographer, so be ready for some chessy photos at the end...

Two Funerals for Loak Yim Lam

Seda's father died on January 17, but this is the first chance that I have had to post any pictures. We had two services. The first one was in Phnom Penh at our church. Her father had made a profession of Christ, and was showing interest in growing in his faith when the cancer really began to get bad. He continued going to church until his body would not allow him. Because of this, Seda wanted to have a service at the church... those are the first pics...



Unfortunately, her mother did not want this, and requested a second service in the Buddhist religion. For me it was a really sad time, because you literally saw people mourning with no confidence that he was okay. Below are some pictures.
