Dear Pastor,

(717) 927-9227

It is with great joy and utmost confidence that I am able to recommend Bill Hardecker to you as a missionary going to the Philippines. With having had the privilege of working with him every day for the past 9 years, I have seen firsthand his burden for people, his love for the Word, and his longing to spend and be spent for God’s work. His character is above reproach and he has a good name here in his home church and community. He has been faithful in the trenches here, and his family is in order. Now as his sending pastor, I look forward to the day in the near future when he is able to go to the field. In a day where missions work is slow on many fields due to learning the culture and language, and overcoming inexperience, Bro. Hardecker has 9 years of ministry experience serving here as our associate pastor. That ministry experience coupled with going to a field where he grew up and where he already knows the language and people I believe will propel his ministry forward in reaching the Filipino people. You will also find him to be a blessing to your church and people. His wife has a heart for the ministry and is very gifted in the area of music. My prayer is that you will be able to team up with this Godly family who wants to be used to reach the Filipino people for Christ. If you have any further questions regarding Bro. Hardecker, please feel free to contact me.
With a Vision for the Lost,

Pastor Chris Starr Mt. Zion Baptist Church (717) 927-9227 ext. 2
