I guess Elijah was listening to my jabbering a few days ago. For one of the ideas that I threw out during my monologue, he actually brought up today.
At the front of our column we could see that the river ahead is taking a decided turn towards the north. A road from the east joins it at that juncture and follows it north.
Elijah says we will continue east taking that road. It leads to the port city on the eastern coast where we hope to catch up with our ship.
So believing that there must be someone from there amongst the followers of Hamashiach with us he sought them out.
We now have a contact name. Praise God.
