One Important Thing
Families, regardless of their size have problems. Personality differences and differences of opinion if left unattended, can always cause hard feelings, strife, division, and isolation.
When a person is part of a smaller congregation, especially in an environment where Christian believers are a minority, one is aware of the value of Christian family. When problems arise between brothers and sisters, it is time to sit down and talk, to pray, and to work together on finding a solution. In this environment there are no other congregations one can run to if problems arise.
