Do you have any fellowship for a sister who is moving away from a locality she migrated to in pursuit of a job?
[#19 Q3] I have really been struggling with this matter of migration vs moving. I am from a small locality that my husband and I migrated to before we had children to serve full-time. Having more saints move here and gaining new ones is quite the challenge. We live in a rural area where there are not many job opportunities so the people we do gain for the church life end up leaving due to job/employment issues. The environment is forcing this move on us. My heart is broken that we have to leave. I feel like we are abandoning the saints. Moving to a city for a job in order to take care of our practical needs seems so self-centered and even the opposite to migrating for the Lord’s move to me. Any experiences/fellowship/clarification and/or encouragement for a sister who is leaving behind her church family and her children’s companions in pursuit of a job?
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
