​Your location should not affect your dedication (Acts 18)
Let us observe Acts 18:2 
And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

Acts 18:2 KJV
Aquila and Priscilla were tentmakers in Rome before Claudius evicted them therefrom. In spite of that , they did not stop doing the work of the Lord. Upon their return to Corinth, they opened up their house to Paul and greatly assisted him in ministry. 
We must remember, as believers, to be hospitable to fellow believers who are also journeying through life, doing the work of the Lord. 
Your location may change, but your dedication must never change. 
Paul commended them in Romans 16 where he said, 
_Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus:  Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles._

Romans 16:3‭-‬4 KJV
In fact, they set up a church in their house: 
_The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house._

1 Corinthians 16:19 KJV
My wife has been reminding me that we need to open a bible study group at our place, and I keep saying, we are working on it. By God’s grace it will materialize. But for now we have the church on our phones and as we stay faithful, we will receive a commendation from Christ himself: 
“Good and faithful servant, enter into my rest!”
May God help us to stay faithful wherever we are in Jesus name.
