6 But then, when Timothy arrived to us from you, he reported to us your faith and charity, and that you keep a good remembrance of us always, desiring to see us, just as we likewise desire to see you.
7 As a result, we were consoled in you, brothers, in the midst of all our difficulties and tribulations, through your faith.
8 For we now live so that you may stand firm in the Lord.
9 For what thanks would we be able to repay to God because of you, for all the joy with which we rejoice over you before our God?
10 For night and day, ever more abundantly, we are praying that we may see your face, and that we may complete those things that are lacking in your faith.
