And he called his twelve disciples together and sent them out two by two, with authority to cast out evil spirits.
He told them to take nothing with them except a walking stick -- no food, no traveler's bag, no money.
He told them to wear sandals but not to take even an extra coat.
10"When you enter each village, be a guest in only one home," he said.
11"And if a village won't welcome you or listen to you, shake off its dust from your feet as you leave. It is a sign that you have abandoned that village to its fate."12
So the disciples went out, telling all they met to turn from their sins.
And they cast out many demons and healed many sick people, anointing them with olive oil.
