After 31 years as a missionary in Australia, Bill co-founded HFM in 2005 with his wife Daphne while they served as missionaries in residence at Indiana Wesleyan University. "As recruiters and mentors of future missionaries, we saw flipping houses as a way to assist them in their funding," he says. Bill now relishes the opportunity to provide financially through HFM for others who serve overseas.
