Tychicus, my good friend here, will tell you what I'm doing and how things are going with me. He is certainly a dependable servant of the Master!
I've sent him not only to tell you about us but to cheer you on in your faith.
Good-bye, friends. Love mixed with faith be yours from God the Father and from the Master, Jesus Christ.
