A chief ruler of the heathen people of Melita lived near the shipwrecked sailors. He had great possessions and for three days lodged and took care of them. Paul found that the father of this great man was very sick, and after praying for him, the man was healed.
Many people came to be healed of their diseases after this had taken place. They were all healed and a great many honors were given to the stranded sailors. After some months, a ship, which had spent the winter in this place, left to finish its journey to Rome, and Paul and his companions left with them.
On the way, the ship made some stops, one at a place called Puteoli where there were believers who desired that Paul would abide with them for seven days.
