What Reuben and Jezer shared about the road between here and the devastated city was helpful and made our decisions easier. The two towns below Reuben’s city lie deserted, their people having fled, fearing they were next for annihilation. They think that we can move by stages and take advantage of their shelter.
Though the Purser voiced some concerns, Reuben had a solution for each, and the rest of us, including Elijah, approved the plan.
So, Tomas was dispatched with the duo and a contingent led by Mawuli which they would leave in the first village to prepare for the first stage.
Reuben with Jezer and Tomas would continue to his hometown and there lend aid to its few survivors.
