God Will Provide
Now this portion of the book of Philippians forms a thank you note from the apostle Paul who is in prison to the church at Philippi ...they have sent him a love gift and now he is writing to thank them for that gift.

Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel when I departed from Macedonai, no church ...
