Moses's face tightened. "What do you want me to do? Snap my fingers and a waiter will appear. There is no such thing as a sit-down restaurant."
Jethro clenched his teeth. "Up until now, we've had bread. I'm sick of bread."
Moses threw his walking stick on the ground. "Well beggars can't be choosers."
Moses went to a place where it was quiet and dropped on his knees and called upon the Lord.
"Dear God, I wished I lived in the twentieth century where they have grocery stores, bottled water and even a touring bus. Although if we had these things, the Israelites would find something else to complain about. I can't take this anymore. Why did you put me in charge of them? There are six hundred thousand people and they want meat. I guess I look like a chicken farmer to them."
The Lord said to Moses, "I've heard the people's grumblings. At twilight you will have enough meat for everybody."
Moses walked back to the Israelites. "Jethro, don't you remember what the Lord has done for us? When we left Egypt, he caused the Red Sea to part when the Egyptians chased us. Then when they attempted to follow us, and I put up my hand and the water crushed our enemies. Don't you think the God that can make the seas part can provide food and water for us?"
Jethro just stared out into space.
Moses narrowed his eyes. "Instead of complaining, you and the rest of the Israelites need to trust God. He will provide. You need to stop your whining. This evening a strong wind is going to blow from the sea and you will be able to gather the quail. You'll have the meat that you want."
That evening the winds started and the quail blew to the shore. Jethro sprinted towards Moses "God did it, the only thing is now we have too much quail. I don't know what we're going to do with all of it."
