I filed pro se and was living in one county, I have since moved to another county.

Does this effect my divorce in anyway, and when I read my testimony should I indicate that I have moved?

The generaly rule is that if you met the filing requirements at the time of the filing you should be fine even if you move.  The Court had what is called "jurisdiction" when you filed.  I am unfamiliar of the requirements of "reading your testimony."   Do you mean allocution?  Where you recite the elements necessary to obtain a dviroce in your state?  The script should give the basic requirements which you seem to make so no need to add anything.  Good luck.
