We lingered long over breakfast before parting company from our new friends. They brim over with joy and thus are a pleasure to be around. They shall be missed. And the feeling is mutual.
Though the parting was tinged with sadness, the hope of our meeting again encourages all alike.
If any of their relatives remain in this world they are hopeful that they may win them to the truth.
Elijah for his part is confident that when we meet up again in Jerusalem, they will have added substantially to their number.
Our quartet had easy going on the southern route. We kept a constant vigil, scanning the sun baked horizon for the army on its march.
No sighting yet.
