He instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a walking stick—no bread, no bags, and no money in their belts.
He told them to wear sandals but not to put on two shirts.
He said, "Whatever house you enter, remain there until you leave that place.11 If a place doesn't welcome you or listen to you, as you leave, shake the dust off your feet as a witness against them."
So they went out and proclaimed that people should change their hearts and lives.
They cast out many demons, and they anointed many sick people with olive oil and healed them.
