Paul in Amphipolis, Greece - 47 photos of the Apostle's Journey

When Paul set out from Philippi, he didn't want to go back to Asia Minor. The vision he had had brought him to Europe.

He wanted, in words he wrote years later, "to fully proclaim the gospel of Christ. It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation." Romans 15:19,20

Foundations - that's about all you'll see in Amphipolis, Greece. The foundations you'll see in the archaeological site are those of ancient churches. It's a fascinating place, even if it seems insignificant.

We all need places to stop and recover after we've been wounded, or hurt, or been beaten up without a trial (Acts 16:37)

Make sure your guide takes you there on your trip through Greece.
