Last transfers, Elder Hardt was given the explicit assignment to identify candidates for AP. In our mission, the APs don’t just work with the other missionaries and members to improve conversion rates. While engaged in that important work, the APs are tasked with scouting and recruiting future leaders for The Brethren among their peers.
Charismatic and persuasive, Elder Hardt has been a star since he was a greenie. Other missionaries gravitate toward him and naturally want to emulate his example. Coupled with his persuasive nature, he was an obvious choice for AP.
Last month Elder Hardt recommended Elder Miller as a potential candidate. The Mission President needed convincing that Elder Miller was the right choice. He agreed to meet with Elders Miller and Hardt at his home for an AP interview.
Elder Hardt made sure the two boys arrived at the mission home a tad early when he knew the Mission President wouldn’t be home.
