And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits, Mark 6:7.
As they went he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff - no bread, no traveling bag, no money in their belts, but to wear sandals and not put on an extra coat. And he said to them, "Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place. If any place does not welcome you or listen to you, when you leave there, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them." Mark 6:11.
So he sent them to preach, he gave them authority over unclean spirits and to cast them out, he instructed what they’d take and how they’d behave themselves. If you’re a minister of Christ people want to gladly hear you despite their reservations. "Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and OBSERVED HIM; and when he heard him, he did many things, and HEARD HIM GLADLY" Mark 6:18-20.
So under authority, the disciples went out preaching, casting out demons and anointing many sick people with oil, and healed them, and afterwards "the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught," Mark 6:30.
So the apostles regrouped, and reported to him all things that they had done and taught,
"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately." Mark 6:31-32. So they went away in the boat by themselves to a remote place.
God is a rewarder; when you do well He says, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
