Loi Almeron's time as a First Church Emerging Leader is coming to a close. Loi reflects on the last year and in particular on the struggle of her immigration process as well as the challenges the church faced after the fire in 2016. As is suggested in the scripture for the morning, our internal structure is changing day by day whether it is seen or unseen (2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1). These internal, unseen experiences are where can put our focus, rather than on temporary externalities. In the face of the struggle, we must not lose heart.
