Day One Thousand Thirty #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Reuben wanted to accompany us, but we knew, (and he knew) that his place was here, for now.

I did brief Quasimo that we would endeavor to contact Elam while in Damascus, if he were still making the rounds in his tanker truck, and ask him to invite Sy to bring his people into the hiding place. In any event we charged Quasimo with the task of traveling to the Galilee with the same invitation, especially if we have not returned at the end of seven days.

We bid our farewells, and Elijah and I committed each one remaining behind into the care and peace of Yeshua Hamashiach. And they said the same blessing over us and for our mission.

Day Seven Hundred Nine #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

It took quite some time to clear away the obstructions. An engineering unit was brought up for the heavy lifting to that end. Until they arrived the leaders of this unit set down the best path for the endeavor.

This left us with a lot of free time. Elijah suggested that we all fast. We agreed.

Our non-eating went unnoticed among our army companions until our absence at evening mess.

It created no little stir.

We were each interrogated about what we were not doing. Something about this behavior unsettled them, making them very suspicious. And in a way I believe they somehow intuited the power that lies behind it.

I finally convinced them they had nothing to fear.
