WiFi signals throughout Europe have been sketchy this past week, so bear with me as I begin uploading my Benelux pictures and travelogue (Part 1 was posted last Tuesday) here to BlogSpot now that I’m back in the U.S. Check back here later this week on BlogSpot for the rest of our adventures!
In the meantime, I’ve already uploaded some “private” Aloha Church of God E.P.I.C. Student Ministry photos on Flickr that I’ve recently converted to “public” for posting here on BlogSpot. Here is a big ol' pile of our students’ favorite pictures from the first few months of 2012…
