‘Still Sharpening’ in Cuba

By Kent Eller MFM National Director

During a recent trip to Cuba, author Warren Hardig signed copies of his newly published Spanish version of Still Sharpening while each man in attendance signed a copy for him as a `thank you' gift.

We were in Cuba to represent Men for Missions ­­ to share who we are, what we do, and why we do what we do. The intent was to support and enhance existing Cuban men's ministries through partnership with MFM.

Warren Hardig and I shared with leaders from across the country that had been brought together for a spiritual retreat and to pray about how to send Cuban missionaries to other countries.

Both English and Spanish versions are available for purchase.

As we shared the MFM story of how God has used ordinary men who were willing to leave their comfort zones to share their talents and testimonies with people in other countries, the people got very excited about the opportunity to start MFM and challenge their laymen to go and share their talents and testimonies. A key to them wanting to be a part of this vision was that many had read Warren's books, Iron Sharpens Iron and Still Sharpening, and it challenged them to think about how God could use them. We recently printed Still Sharpening in Spanish, and it is having an impact as people read the stories and testimonies of laymen, and how God helped them through life's challenges and situations. It helped them realize that it does not matter where you live or what you do, there will be challenges in life.

The book illustrates that a personal relationship with God is the key to help us get through the challenges of life, to see how He uses those times to deepen our walk with Him, and help us to be an encouragement to others.

After one of our final sessions, the national church president had a special gift for Warren. He wanted to honor Warren for his love for Cuba, his love for the people of Cuba, and the impact that his book had made in the lives of the Cuban people.

He asked Warren to sit at a desk in the front of the room and had those in attendance line up while Warren signed copies of Still Sharpening that had just been printed. A special gift back to Warren was that each person then signed one of the books for him to take home.

It was one of those holy moments, as there were hugs, a few tears, and a closing prayer together. It's awesome to see that God is still using ordinary men to show Christ's love to a world that so desperately needs Him.
