Children in Goducate Children’s Home in Cambodia take part in wedding celebrations

The children in the Goducate Children’s Home recently had an opportunity not only to attend a wedding, but also to take part in it. The occasion was staff member Ronnie’s marriage. Earlier, the children had had a part to play in Ronnie’s proposal of marriage.

Ronnie, a Filipino, has been helping at the Home for the past 5 years. His bride Joy, also a Filipino, has been teaching at a Korean school in Cambodia for the past 7 years. They first met when Joy and her friends came to the Home to help decorate our dormitories and learning center. Thus many of the children have witnessed the development of the romance.

During the wedding, the children provided the music, and served as flower girls, as ring and contract bearer, or as usherettes. They had also decorated the venue for the wedding.
