L: Here I am at mount Sinai with Moses. How is it that you, Moses, got the Israelite's out of Egypt?
M: It wasn’t easy but God spoke to me and told me that the Israelites were his people and they weren’t supposed to be enslaved by the Egyptians.

L: Did the Egyptians agree right away to let the Israelites go?
M: No, the Egyptians didn’t agree right away. So, God said that he would send ten plagues the last one being the angel of death (Issacs, 2017).
L: How many plagues did it take to make the King of Egypt to let the Israelites go?
M: The King of Egypt didn’t listen to me until the first plague was sent, which was where all the water turned to blood. When this happened, he promised me that he would let the Egyptians go if I turned the water back. But he broke that promise as soon as the water was clear again. It went in this fashion for the rest of the plagues, the plague would come, the King would promise to release the Israelites, God would take the plague away and he would break his promise.
L: Did God have to send all ten of the plagues?
M: Yes, it took all ten of the worst plagues imaginable to finally convince the King to let the Israelites go.

L: After you got the Israelites out of Egypt how long did you walk through the desert and did any of the Israelites ever doubt that God was with them?
M: We walked through the desert for 40 years, that’s a long time. And maybe 10 or 12 people doubted me during that time, but they would always keep walking. And now here we are at Mount Sinai. But the people didn’t follow God all the way. When we got to mount Sinai, the Israelites started to worship and follow false Gods (Rabbi, 2006).
L: How did you get them to stop, worshipping this ‘false’ Gods.
M: God sent them a message, telling them to stop worshipping the other Gods because He is there God and there are His people.
L: Was there any relieve when you found mount Sinai?
M: There was no relieve when we found mount Sinai because we always knew that God would look after us and lead us to somewhere safe.
L: What are you waiting for now?
M: God has told me not to set foot on the mountain before the ram horn sounds a loud sound (Ex 19:14).

L: How will you and the Israelites up hold this covenant to God.
M: The Israelites and I will forever, worship and love God as He is our God and we are His people.
L: Moses has been walking here for 40 years because God told him to get his people, the Israelites, out of Egypt. And now he is here at the base of Mount Sinai, waiting for the trumpet, so that he can speak to God. That is truly amazing, thank you, back to you.
