We all accompanied the Captain, Elam and Sy down to the docks to bid them Godspeed. Mr. Kagi received us with open arms and wanted to take everyone away with him right then. But we committed our friends to him and to the One who sees all.
And thankfully Mawuli heeded the call and gladly joined with them too. He told me of his realization that to ship out on his father’s former vessel had long been a desire of his heart.
The Captain for his part wanted to have Tomas along, but he joyfully knows that each has a part to play.
We watched from shore as the ship threaded its way through the other vessels in the harbor.
