You've looked to me to be your leader. To guide you on this journey. But I'm no leader. I'm a follower, just like you. God has instructed me to stay here and wait for His sign. This is our time to prove through suffering that we are worthy of the miracle that's to come. The Kingdom of Heaven is coming, I promise you.
