Last week, ministry leaders from all over the country gathered in Tampa, Florida, for the Fifth Lutheran Hispanic National Convention. It was a time of encouragement for people involved in Hispanic ministry – or who are just getting started. The Lutheran Mariachis from San Pablo Lutheran Church (El Paso) led all the music. Four very helpful keynote presentations set the tone. The Missionary Institute led a breakout session on working with the 2nd and 3rd generations. We saw a lot of old friends and colleagues and met new ones. We’re praying for each of them! Next conference – PALMCON 2 in El Paso next year!
