Day One Thousand One Hundred Twelve #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Tomas had stopped in to check on us this morning and to look into some problems with the power in our villa. (At the behest of the leader of our guard detail – the Supreme Commander is doing all he can do to keep us “happy”). We did not have long to confer, for almost immediately he was called away to the desalination plants.

Within the hour word filtered back that the installation had been attacked, but there was no damage. The defenses put in place beforehand by Tomas had thwarted it.

Elijah and I were glad to hear that our friend was safe too. Yet the thought came that this incident would only reinforce the Supreme Commander’s belief about us.

Tomas wanted more than anything to abandon this place and leave. But the tasks needing his attention are mounting. It is tearing him up. His sense of duty and his penchant for completing projects well, puts him at odds with himself. And may soon put him at cross purposes to the Supreme Commander.

Elijah had noticed this, so we spent the day following him about with our guard detail tagging along.

Despite their presence we were able to seize two opportunities to counsel Tomas to wait and not do anything hasty or without an agreement among the three of us under the authority of the Spirit.

Noticeably, peace blessed the rest of our time out with him on his rounds.
