We try to live in such a way that no one will be hindered from finding the Lord by the way we act, and so no one can find fault with our ministry.
In everything we do we try to show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind.
We have been beaten, been put in jail, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food.
We have proved ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, our sincere love, and the power of the Holy Spirit.
