[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Act 16:9 That night Paul had a vision in which he saw a Macedonian standing and begging him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!"
Act 16:10 As soon as Paul had this vision, we got ready to leave for Macedonia, because we decided that God had called us to preach the Good News to the people there.
Act 16:11 We left by ship from Troas and sailed straight across to Samothrace, and the next day to Neapolis.
Act 16:12 From there we went inland to Philippi, a city of the first district of Macedonia; it is also a Roman colony. We spent several days there.
Act 16:13 On the Sabbath we went out of the city to the riverside, where we thought there would be a place where Jews gathered for prayer. We sat down and talked to the women who gathered there.
Act 16:14 One of those who heard us was Lydia from Thyatira, who was a dealer in purple cloth. She was a woman who worshiped God, and the Lord opened her mind to pay attention to what Paul was saying.
Act 16:15 After she and the people of her house had been baptized, she invited us, "Come and stay in my house if you have decided that I am a true believer in the Lord." And she persuaded us to go.
