If it is the Lord's will, I hope that I will be able to send Timothy to you soon, so that I may be encouraged by news about you.
He is the only one who shares my feelings and who really cares about you.
Everyone else is concerned only with their own affairs, not with the cause of Jesus Christ.
And you yourselves know how he has proved his worth, how he and I, like a son and his father, have worked together for the sake of the gospel.
So I hope to send him to you as soon as I know how things are going to turn out for me.
And I trust in the Lord that I myself will be able to come to you soon.
