Raj G’s joy at finding us was short lived. It melted away when he broke off my hug and fell to the floor sobbing uncontrollably.
There he remained. Begging for forgiveness between racking sobs. He confessed he had lost all of the people entrusted to him. They had been swept up by the government forces when they neared Jerusalem.
At this juncture Jezer excused himself to go out and seek those drone parts I needed.
It took the rest of the night for Elijah and me to calm our friend.
We succeeded shortly before Jezer’s return and immediately decamped for the hiding place.
Once there we discussed the situation with the leadership and formulated a consensus for our next move.
