Elijah took Mawuli’s parents aside to encourage them. I could tell that their hopes were greatly shored up when I talked with them later in the day.
And I know my resolve has been strengthened likewise. It helps when you get the focus off yourself and onto Whom it belongs.
Keeping busy also helps. Especially doing those things that I can see are building up others and meeting their needs.
Mei and Meesa have aided me in this, adding to the list that Elijah gave me yesterday.
However, these chores were interrupted soon after. When delivering some requested items to Reuben’s conclave, he met me with the news that Magwich and two other former prison guards had left without permission.
