The Church in Columbia is the closest church and has had many opportunities to visit the saints in Charleston. There are a few saints that sporadically have home meetings, but there is the need for saints, especially younger couples, who are vital members in the daily church life to migrate to a city with a population that includes many young couples. Also, the burden is for some experienced saints to migrate to Charleston to help bear some responsibility in shepherding the saints.
