Preachers and Traveling

We speak of Paul’s missionary journeys, but he rarely traveled alone, as the following account shows, “And Sopater of Berea accompanied him to Asia–also Aristarchus and Secundus of the Thessalonians, and Gaius of Derbe, and Timothy, and Tychicus and Trophimus of Asia. These men, going ahead, waited for us at Troas. But we sailed away from Philippi after the Days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days joined them at Troas, where we stayed seven days” (Acts 20:4-6).
Often preachers work alone today, but whenever possible they should work with others. I have been in both situations. Sometimes you have no choice, but working with others is generally better.
