I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia, for I am planning to travel through Macedonia.
It could be that I will stay awhile with you, perhaps all winter, and then you can send me on my way to the next destination.
This time I don't want to make just a short visit and then go right on. I want to come and stay awhile, if the Lord will let me.
In the meantime, I will be staying here at Ephesus until the Festival of Pentecost,
for there is a wide-open door for a great work here, and many people are responding. But there are many who oppose me.
