It wasn’t an easy assignment, but Rev. Robert Flohrs says he’s grateful for the opportunity he had to minister to U.S. servicemembers within hours of the March 2 shooting at Frankfurt Airport.
“I felt very honored and privileged to be used like that by the Lord,” said Flohrs, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, an English-speaking international congregation in Frankfurt, Germany. “This is what I’m called to do—I’m called to comfort and care for people, and to share the love of our Savior.”
Flohrs, a career missionary with LCMS World Mission, has served as pastor of Trinity, Frankfurt, for a year and a half. The congregation was started in 1957 to serve U.S. troops stationed in Germany, and now has some 200 members from more than 15 countries.
