I am in awe of people who pick up their lives from their countries of origin and move to another country – especially when they move to a new community in which the language, culture, expectations, laws, everything, is different.
There are people who are forced to leave their homes and their are people who choose to do so; and, I am sure, there are as many reasons as there are people who emigrate.
My hope and prayer for them? Whether or not they find what they expected, I hope they find better than what they left.
