This morning Elijah sent Reuben out again to check. He returned almost immediately. While he watched, Moglen who was still lurking, turned about and left.
With this news, Reuben and I thought we should leave as soon as possible. But Elijah surprised us by insisting that we wait a while longer. Adding that we have an appointment to keep.
He waved aside any further query and asked us to be praying for his two bands of pupils. He said they were in sore need of our support.
This we did until Elijah announced it was time to depart.
At every turn of the path I expected to see one of Elijah’s pupils. Imagine my surprise when we came upon Tomas.
