What Happened at Philippi?
In Philippi , they met a woman named Lydia who wanted to be apart of christianity near the riverbank where there was a place of prayer. Lydia and other members of household were baptized and Paul and the others stayed at her house. The Philippians believed Saint Paul and Sila were causing an uproar in the city.

St. Paul impacted the church in a positive way as he spread the word of Christ and helped form churches which led to people converting to Christianity. Therefore Saint Paul helped create a bigger and stronger Christian community and more followers of Christ who could also spread the word of Christ. Another way St. Paul got people to convert from gentiles to Christianity it wasn't a requirement to be circumcised like Christianity. St. Paul helped strengthen church after Jesus' death and continue the faith. St. Paul had made the Christianity and the church accessible for the masses. Saint Paul's writing continue to revitalize and establish Christianity and the concept of church and salvation. Saint Paul was a role model for all.

Saint Paul had a major impact on contemporary society as he helped shape our church and faith. Saint Pauls letters make up thirteen chapters of the New Testament and the bible. Also St Paul's letters gave historical information of the times of Christ. Saint Paul teaching in his letters have formed the basis of Christian giving. Saint Paul's letters are physical written evidence of the existence of Christ and Christianity in that period of time and have contributed to the history books greatly. The gospels Luke and John have been greatly influenced by St Paul's letters and these two gospels hold the story of Jesus which we read at everyday at church and in religion classes. St Paul's teachings had inspired many followers. Without St Paul's teaching Christianity may have not ever been to us here in Australia today. St Paul's writings transformed, challenged and inspired christians up to this day. Saint Paul is a central figure in Christianity and is a great role model for us forever because of his greath features and values.
The purpose of Saint Pauls Second Missionary Journey is to visit the churches and towns he preached at in his first missionary journey to check how they are going. Also to go to new places and spread the word of Christ and form and strengthen churches. The purpose of this journey was to bring the gospel to the Gentiles and Jews and establish and strengthen churches and continue Jesus' mission. St Paul aimed to form strong Christian communities in each major city of the Roman Empire.
In Antioch this is where Paul and Barnabas had a disagreement over John accompanying them on this journey. The result of this disagreement was that they both went there separate ways. Paul was accompanied by Sila and continued on the planned journey.
What Happened at Thessalonica?
Next Stop was Thessalonica, a town in Macedonia .This part of the journey Saint Paul was accompanied by Timothy and Silas.
What Happened at Berea?
Next Stop was Berea, a small city on the eastern side of Vermion Mountains. St Paul was accompanied by Silas and Timothy in this leg of the journey.
What Happened at Athens?
In Berea, Paul, Silas and Timothy went straight away to the synagogue, the Bereans were very accepting of them and received the message of Christ with eagerness and believed it was true as they looked through the scriptures. Soon after the Thessalonians arrived to stir up the crowd which led to Paul being forced and escorted out of Berea to Athens.
After St Paul had visited some of the towns from his first Journey and he was joined by Timothy continued to going to new towns and this part of the Journey is called the European Journey. St Paul was accompanied by Silas. The first stop was Philippi a Roman colony which is a leading city of Macedonia.
Once Again St Paul went to the Synagogue and on the three sabbath days he was preaching about Christ. Once again the local Thessalonians got jealous and gathered up a mob of people and started a riot. A local named Jason hid them but St Paul, Silas and Timothy still left Thessalonica and moved on to Berea.

The last stop in St Pauls second journey was Athen, the main city of Greece and he was accompanied by Silas.
It was in Athens when St Paul was once again preaching at a synagogue and some philosophers began a dispute with Paul about preaching incorrect statements and corrupting the minds of Athenians. St Paul went to the council and objectified himself and his preaching and some of the Areopagus members and bystanders started following in Christ. This was one of the successful parts of the journey.
Saint Paul was preaching God’s grace in forgiving sin through Christ. Saint Paul preached about Christ our Savior and how he had to suffer and rise from the dead." And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross"(Col 1:17-20) and this was what St Paul preached about.St Paul preached in the synagogues and other places in various towns and wrote thirteen letters to the early church communities about his journey and How, What, When and Where he preached,

Saint Paul faced various challenges throughout his second missionary journey. Saint Paul faced challenges with the social differentiation among the members of the community. Rich and Poor, Jewish and Gentiles which had fragmented the society. Saint Paul wanted to them to join and stop causing tension and come together and follow in Christ. Saint Paul acted as mediator between them all because if you “Bear one another’s burdens, and so you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal 6:2).
Saint Paul had challenges in his relationship with Barnabas as they had disagreement over the accompaniment of John Mark as Paul had trust issues with John. They both had to compromise and negotiate which wasn't successful and they went there separate ways. So there relationship wasn't as strong.
Saint Paul also had the challenges of being beaten, stoned, and stripped of his clothing and being imprisoned. This was done because he was speaking his own mind and opinion and he got punished for it by locals in every town as they believed his was corrupting their minds.
St Paul had faced the challenge of being tired and exhausted a lot due to the copious amounts of traveling and violent attacks against him. He also had to work alongside preaching to earn a living to support himself and both of those required a lot of effort and energy.
I think Saint Paul was willing to go on this journey and face these challenges as he was a devoted follower of Christ and he wanted everyone to be aware of Christ and the beliefs of Christianity. St. Paul also wanted to display his passion, salvation and faith in God to others and to God. Saint Paul had met the resurrected Jesus and had conquered death and it was a motivation for him to go on these journeys.“In [Christ] who is the source of my strength I have strength for everything” (Phil 4:13) Paul wrote and this is was a source of motivation that made Paul willing and able to go on this journey.
St Paul stood up for what he believed in and he wrote “For I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Rom 1:16,) and that why he continued going on the journey for his own beliefs.
St Paul was so willing to go on these journeys he continued going on them even though the circumstances were very difficult as he would get physically abused but through all these hardships he continued to endure throughout his journey.
St Paul's Second Missionary Journey was around the years 49-52 AD and an account of these stories can be found in Acts 15: 36-40,16,17,18:1-22 .

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres"(1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
This is one of St Pauls most famous messages.
