Although it has been a month since Pastor Bob and Rita Flohrs departed Frankfurt, Germany, we would like to take a moment to thank God for their ministry in Eurasia and more specifically, Trinity Lutheran Church. Bob and Rita came to Trinity in Frankfurt back in 2009 after many years leading short term mission teams from Arizona to serve in eastern Germany.

For the last five and a half years they have used that heart for mission and Gospel proclamation to lead this multinational congregation to a better understanding of what Christ is calling them to do in their communities and how to put their faith into action. With people from all over the world attending Trinity for a limited amount of time, Pastor Flohrs has always said that one of the most important parts of ministry at Trinity is preparing people to leave and share the Gospel wherever they go in the world.

We wish God’s richest blessings to them as they embark on the next journey God has in store for them.
