Chapter 1

It seems like only yesterday I was in the city of Rome. The events leading to my present situation were unlike anything I had ever encountered. However, I'm no longer in Rome, and these surroundings are nothing like what I had been used to. Mary seemed to adapt quicker than I have in the two years we've been here, but God is true to his word; he has helped me in all my doubts.

I have learned to use the technology of the time era I'm in to do what I do best: guard. Some things I am still unfamiliar with, but time will be my teacher. I run a security business, and I'm doing pretty well according to the standards of the day. I still haven't met the man of science, or John. God sure takes his time producing what he promises. The words of Onesiphorus come back to me and reassure me God knows what he is doing.

Mary and I live in what is called an apartment. It has one large bedroom, decorated to Mary's taste, with maroon draperies and royal blue walls. My favorite room is the living room. It has blue carpet on the floor and a small table in the center of the room surrounded by comfortable pillows, resembling the one I had in Rome, at which I recline in the evenings. This is my daily connection to my past.

Mary has found plenty of entertainment using the appliances in the kitchen to do her cooking. She's still amazed by the speed with which she can prepare a meal, and says she enjoys the extra time she gets to spend with God. Neither one of us are concerned about the law prohibiting Christianity in the United Countries of the World.
