Collection For The Saints
Acts 11:27-30 King James Version (KJV)

27. And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch.

28. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

29. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea:

30. Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

There was a famine or recession in the world later after Jesus ascension; and those who could gave to the saints who lacked.

Collection for the Saints
So as verse 30 above states Saul now Paul and Barnabas went to collect the donations from the people who had. Paul had asked that everyone in the churches in Galatia and Corinth put their donations in storage on Sunday, the first day of the week; so that when he passed through the donations would be ready.

1 Corinthians 16:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

1. Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.

2. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

3. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.

4. And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

5. Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia.
