PIBC Wedding

Last Saturday we had the privilege to attend the wedding of Sonny (from Yap) and Elilai (from Palau). Sonny had a busy week. He was the PIBC valedictorian and had given his valedictory address at the graduation on Tuesday. The wedding took place at the Palauan Evangelical Church of Guam and was officiated by the pastor, Andrew Immanuel (Andy was one of my students at Emmaus a long time ago - well back in the 1980's. It was a beautiful wedding. On the left here is a picture of Elilai being escorted into the church by her dad and on the right they are saying their vows.

We also enjoyed the reception, and not just because they had a chocolate indulgence wedding cake. A couple different church bands provided worship music and several of Sonny and Elilai's friends (many from the PIBC students and staff) sang. Ned Farnsworth led some games to honor and help the new couple (one game cost me my belt, my shoestring and one dollar - don't ask.) We also got to get caught up with a lot of old friends that we hadn't seen in a while. Of course there was a lot of great island food.
