It amazes me how many churches that Paul planted in the New Testament. He traveled all over from Corinth to Thessalonica and planted churches. After he would plant these churches he would appoint pastors to pastor these churches so he could continue to travel and plant churches. But after a short time he would return to these churches to visit and see how they were doing spiriturally . Sometimes he would comeback and see these churches in disarray and he would have to correct this issue. He had such a passion to plant churches and grow these congregations that it was hard for him to leave these churches but he had to leave each of these churches because he was called to plant churches.
