This elder in 3 John commend Gaius for his loyalty and his hospitality towards a group of traveling “brothers”.  These “brothers” were brothers in the faith or missionaries.  They were following the command of Jesus in Mark, chapter 6:8–9 to set out on a journey without any money.  This elder requested that Gaius provide for these brothers to help continue them on their journey.  Have you ever been a missionary?
