3 I was so happy when some Christians arrived and told me how faithful you are to the truth - just as you always live in the truth.
4 Nothing makes me happier than to hear that my children live in the truth.
5 My dear friend, you are so faithful in the work you do for other Christians, even when they are strangers.
6 They have spoken to the church here about your love. Please help them to continue their trip in a way that will please God.
7 For they set out on their trip in the service of Christ without accepting any help from unbelievers.
8 We Christians, then, must help these people, so that we may share in their work for the truth.
