Conclusion
However God NORMALLY works ... and He normally works to save souls and start churches through the culturally appropriate proclamation of His Word ... on this occasion His providence allowed the subversion of the usual pattern.

God can do that when He wants to, and we have seen something very similar to that this last year with our very own eyes. How is He calling US to adapt?

Paul and co. in this epistle are saying to the Thessalonian church that they have imitated the apostles lives in the lives that they (the Thessalonians) have led while deprived of good Bible teaching leadership ... and the letter encourages them in following that example - God's Word written in their human lives - encouraging the Thessalonians they are part of the Apostolic effort because the lives they've lived in mimicking the apostles have proclaimed the Word and ways of God and His Gospel throughout the world.
