Submitted by: R.W. and R.W. who migrated from Wichita, KS to Topeka, KS in 2011 to hold a job.
What is the spiritual highlight of your migration?
We have seen the Lord really open the doors regarding our material needs related to our migration. Spiritually, He has thoroughly captured one of our contacts and a few others are close to it.
As for a burden, there is another couple who moved here (they moved from New Mexico) almost at the same time we did. We did not know about them (or vice versa) until after I accepted the new job. It was clearly the Lord’s arrangement. We had hoped to have a lot of fellowship with them, yet they have been fairly closed to us. They do go to a nearby locality for the Lord’s day meetings, but as far as anything further they have not been very open to us.
We do struggle a little bit with a sense of isolation during the week, and it would be good if this other couple would begin to open to the idea of more fellowship with us.
We have been praying that the Lord would either bring some more couples to the city, or cause some of our existing contacts to begin to meet with us on a more regular basis. Either one would be good, but both would be wonderful! We want to see a lampstand raised up here.
