He called the twelve apostles, sent them out two by two, and gave them authority over evil spirits.
He instructed them to take nothing along on the trip except a walking stick. They were not to take any food, a traveling bag, or money in their pockets.
They could wear sandals but could not take along a change of clothes.
He told them, "Whenever you go into a home, stay there until you're ready to leave that place.
Wherever people don't welcome you or listen to you, leave and shake the dust from your feet as a warning to them."
So the apostles went and told people that they should turn to God and change the way they think and act.
They also forced many demons out of people and poured oil on many who were sick to cure them.
