Paul talks about the three things main things that marked these Thessalonian believers---their work of faith, their labor of love, and their endurance in hope. These are detailed more clearly farther down, in the latter part of verse nine, where we read, "how you turned to God from idols"---that was the work of faith; they turned to God from these pagan idols they were worshiping, and "to serve a living and true God"---that was their labor of love; they became an available instrument for the love of God, and third, "to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come." (1 Thess. 1:9,10) And there is the expression of the patience, waiting in hope for his Son from heaven.
