A home sold sign.Moving house is stressful. But add in moving to another country, and not sure which country, and doing it with camels and donkeys – Abram’s problems had only just begun  (later he was renamed by God to Abraham).A group on camels.Yes, decisions, decisions.

Abram and all his family and possessions have to leave his familiar, possibly much-loved homeland and travel to a small unknown country.

Why? Because God told him to do it.

It would be dangerous and when they arrive, things get worse because there is a famine and they have to move to Egypt for a time.

When Abram trusted God completely he was able to get through all the impossible situations.
