Saul and the servant searched the grounds. <br/>They looked high and low, but the donkeys couldn’t be found. <br/>Saul told the servant, 'We’d better head home or Father will worry, <br/>so we better scurry.' – Slide 3
The servant told Saul, 'The prophet Samuel lives near. <br/>Let’s visit him. He listens to God and will tell us what he hears. <br/>We will ask him where the donkeys can be found. <br/>Then, we can bring the donkeys back home, safe and sound.' – Slide 4
So they looked for a while and saw some girls at a well. <br/>Saul asked, “Is the prophet nearby?” <br/>'Yes, he is', the girls replied. <br/>'He is in the town for the sacrifice and the people are waiting. <br/>He will feast with the people and give us God’s blessing.' – Slide 5
