New International Version
Jesus replied, "Let us go somewhere else--to the nearby villages--so I can preach there also. That is why I have come."
King James Bible
And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.
Darby Bible Translation
And he says to them, Let us go elsewhere into the neighbouring country towns, that I may preach there also, for for this purpose am I come forth.
World English Bible
He said to them, "Let's go elsewhere into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because I came out for this reason."
Young's Literal Translation
and he saith to them, 'We may go to the next towns, that there also I may preach, for for this I came forth.'

The towns and the villages will not come to the preacher - the preacher must go to them, if he desires their salvation. In this, also, Jesus has left his ministering servants an example, that they should follow his steps. Let no minister of God think he has delivered his own soul, till he has made an offer of salvation to every city and village within his reach.
