Tomas and the Captain returned today. Their foray had yielded slim results. But such as those were, they did raise the hope of an eventual breakthrough.
They excitedly talked about the possibilities. According to them the most promising ground for discovery lay towards the north and west of Jericho, long ago known as the Galilee.
They wanted to return there as soon as possible. But before that they asked to confer with Elijah and myself.
I was available, but Elijah was not. In order to have a face to face with him, they’d have to wait for him to return from intercession.
I decided to release them to the work on my own recognizance, when Elijah emerged and halted everything.
