Luke 9:1-6; Mark 6:6-13; Matthew 9:35 - 11:1
One day, Jesus called his 12 special disciples together. He gave them power to cast out demons and to heal sick people. Then He sent them into the country to preach about the Kingdom of God. He said to them, "Do not take anything for your journey. If you go into a house, stay there until you leave." He warned them that some people were going to reject them. Those people were rejecting God also. So the disciples went from village to village telling the good news and healing people everywhere.
