I plan to visit you after passing through northern Greece. I won't be staying long there,
but maybe I can stay awhile with you - maybe even spend the winter? Then you could give me a good send-off, wherever I may be headed next.
I don't want to just drop by in between other "primary" destinations. I want a good, long, leisurely visit. If the Master agrees, we'll have it!
For the present, I'm staying right here in Ephesus.
