Timothy and Epaphroditus

19 Now I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon so that I also may be encouraged when I hear news about you.
20 For I have no one else like-minded who will genuinely care about your interests;
21 all seek their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ.
22 But you know his proven character, because he has served with me in the gospel ministry like a son with a father.
23 Therefore, I hope to send him as soon as I see how things go with me.
24 And I am convinced in the Lord that I myself will also come quickly.
