16 so that we can preach the gospel in the regions beyond you. For we do not want to boast about work already done in someone else’s territory.

To preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man's line of things made ready to our hand.
so that we may preach the gospel in lands beyond you, without boasting of work already done in another's area of influence.
Then we will be able to go and preach the Good News in other places far beyond you, where no one else is working. Then there will be no question of our boasting about work done in someone else’s territory.

What does 2 Corinthians 10:16 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Corinthians 10:16

To preach the Gospel in the regions beyond you
Here the apostle clearly expresses what he hoped for, and explains what he meant by being enlarged according to rule; namely, that he should be at liberty to preach the Gospel elsewhere; and hoped he should be directed by the providence of God, to carry it into the more remote and distant parts of the world, where as yet Christ had not been named:

and not to boast in another man's line:
or enter into another man's province, glory in other men's labours, as did the false apostles: and boast

of things made ready to our hand;
that is, of places cultivated and improved, by the preaching of the Gospel, so as to bring forth fruit to the honour and glory of God; where many souls were already converted, and churches were planted and put into good order, and were in a flourishing condition; see ( Romans 15:18-21 ) .
