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.
