I'm posting this both as an anecdote and also to see if, by chance, this person reads this site. (If you do, it'd be great to catch up since you now live fairly close to me!)
I've got a friend who until very recently was actively serving as an elder in hall close to Bethel, and on a body heavy with Bethelites. He suddenly moved out of the area, providing different explanations, and different destinations, to different people. As soon as he moved, he canceled all social media accounts and changed his cell phone number. Not even his family had means of contacting him or knew exactly where he moved. He has not been to a meeting since, his old body of elders has not been contacted by any new congregation or received any requests to move his publisher card elsewhere.
Everyone-- friend, family, old congregation are completely flummoxed. He was an active, engaged elder one day, and completely off the grid the next.
Brings a new meaning to entering the "witness protection" program.
