Jesse returned safely on March 27th and even managed to stay up until 9 that evening. He had a great time and thanks the many of you that offered support both financially and with your prayers. He returned with over 1300 photos and a few souvenirs. We pared down those photos to the top 100 or so which can be seen on our Facebook page if you are a friend. If not, send a request and you can check them out. You can also see some of his exploits on the trip through the eyes of his teacher at: http://www.everlater.com/rockylockwood/2011-avc-europe-trip/los-angeles-california–2. There are several photos of him and even a video of his presentation at the Omaha Beach Cemetery in Normandy. Watch for the red beret that appears halfway through the trip. It was his way of standing out and helping others in the group to see where they were going. Just look for the 6 ft 4 guy in the red beret. 😛
Now that he has returned, he has under two months before graduation the first week of June. Time to focus on the finish line and work hard. He has a goal for after graduation and I will share more on that at a later time. For now, we want him to do well on his remaining studies and complete his high school education. We are proud of the young man he has become and know that he will accomplish great things in life. We wish each of you a happy Easter in the next few weeks and pray that you know the power of His resurrection in your life. Behold He is not here, but is risen!
