I am going to make up example below.

(ex) When John and his family moved here from Mexico, they faced a lot of challenges. They had to labour on their new life journey.

Is "labour" the correct verb?

Thanks a lot.

I agree.

"Labour" is not the only word you can use, but it is a very good one.
Others might be 'toil', 'strive', 'work hard'.
