“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you.” 3 John 2
Dear mates, I pray that ya may enjoy good health and all may go well with ya. It gives me great joy ter hear ’bout yer faithfulness ter tha truth and how ya continue ter walk in it. I ‘ave no greater joy than ter hear that my mates and crew be walking in Skipper and his Son’s true and righteous ways.
Please send others along thar way in a manner that honors Skip. It be fer tha sake of tha Son that ya and them others went out. Ne’er ferget, we ought ter always be accommodating to folks who work fer tah truth.
I do call yer attention ter them who be gossiping maliciously and command they cut it out. Imitate what be good, not evil. Now then, ’till I arrive back in port and kin speak with ya plainly ter yer face, stick ter tha Son’s instructions and way. Keep ter Skipper’s Code of Conduct.
Fair winds and following seas, mate. May peace and mercy be yer mark as Skipper’s crew.
