Serah told the elders that Moses was the one who would redeem Israel from Egypt, for she heard in the words of Exodus 3: Abram replied by asking Terah to listen to what he had just said.

May it be Your will HASHEM, my G-d and G-d of my forefathers, that You show favor to me [my husband, my sons, my daughters, my father, my mother] and all my relatives; and that You grant us and all Israel a good and long life; that You remember us with a beneficent memory and blessing; that You consider us with a consideration of salvation and compassion; that You bless us with great blessings; that You make our households complete; that You cause Your Presence to dwell among us.

They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Recall as well how the primary purpose of the main speech was to teach Bnei Yisrael the various laws which they must keep when they enter the land. After all, there are an awful lot of un-chosen people out there.
