And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same
commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 2:2

Pastor Tom Hunter - Plantation Baptist Church

It is with great joy that I write this letter of recommendation for Nick and Lorena Zarrella as missionaries to Japan. I have had the wonderful privilege of pastoring Nick and Lorena for many years and am honored to be their sending pastor and Plantation Baptist to be their sending church.

The pastor and people of Plantation Baptist Church have witnessed clear evidence of Nick and Lorena’s salvation in Christ, their service in evangelism, their surrender to God’s call, and the sweet spirit of God that rests upon them. Nick and Lorena are passionate about missions and especially about the people of Japan. I am amazed how, along with God’s call, comes God’s love and compassion for a people they have yet to meet. I am sure you will see this too when you meet them.

Please receive this letter as the formal recommendation of the pastor and people of Plantation Baptist Church, for Nick and Lorena Zarrella to be considered in your Mission’s Program. I am sure your people will love them and will want to partner with them for the cause of Christ.

The Baptist Church Ministry Network

We are endorsed missionaries through the Baptist Church Ministry Network. BCMN missions endorses, trains and coaches missionaries in communications and finances. All missionaries agree with the BCMN Statement of Faith and the Biblical, Balanced, and Baptist philosophy to endorse them for churches of like practices. A missionary earns BCMN endorsement by completing a Strategic Report. This report includes the missionary’s salvation experience, call to ministry, doctrinal statement, ministry plan, and agreement with the BCMN’s statement of faith and philosophy. The Strategic Report is completed each year and signed by the missionary and sending pastor.
