Rev. Paul Flo of Hope, South Sioux City, leads Siouxland Hispanic Ministry, reaching out to the Hispanic community in that area. He recently shared news about the ways God is at work in that community.
“In September, three ladies—Yessenia (Mexico), Valia (Cuba), and Jackeline (Guatemala)—will be confirmed in the faith and confession of our Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. It will be a joyous day for both our English and our Spanish speaking members who are preparing cards, cake, and a lunch to celebrate.
“We give thanks to God who is allowing us to see the fruits of faithfully teaching and preaching His powerful Word which transforms minds and hearts. We plant and water, but God gives the growth, as St. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3: ‘I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.’ All glory be to God!”
Rev. Flo shared about joining these families in their birthday parties and anniversary celebrations, saying, “These sorts of invitations and shared moments tell me that members of our Hispanic community are starting to see Hope Lutheran Church and her pastor as a meaningful part of their community and lives… Things are moving in good directions! Again, all glory be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gives the growth!”
