Submitted by: M.S. and A.S. who migrated from Irvine, CA to Birmingham, AL in 2012 to hold a job.
Moved to Birmingham to strengthen the church life here. Financial strain was a factor – starting a family and living in Southern California created positive pressure to migrate. My job is mobile. I can work anywhere in the country.
What is the spiritual highlight of your migration?
The Lord’s care and arrangement every step of the way, in the fellowship, in the Body. Almost no effort on our part. We cooperate to do our part, but He is ready to move.
Is there anything else you would like to explain or share?
I’ve been comparing our migration experience to my experience of getting married. It seems the Lord is ready, but He needs to do a preparation work in us. When we are ready and open, He moves quickly.
