Our return to monitor the tanker truck staging yard was interrupted by one of Elijah’s pupils sent to retrieve us.
When we asked the reason, we were told that two men from Elijah’s second group had come in from the north looking for Elijah. They have news from Jerusalem.
Reluctant to leave and chance missing Elam, we asked if he could bring one of the men to us.
He no sooner had left, when I spotted Elam roll in. As his tanker was filled, we moved outside and hailed him as he drove out.
We urged upon him our invitation for Sy’s people to come to the hiding place.
Before he dropped us off he had news to share too.
