still sharpening

a book by Warren Hardig

Ordinary men doing God’s Extraordinary work around the world.

Men for Missions International Director Warren Hardig, inspired by the courage and commitment of ordinary men answering God’s call to obedience, has compiled 10 of their stories in Still Sharpening, his second book of personal narratives.

As Warren often says, “Men for Missions can be hazardous to your ambitions.” Living that, these men have responded, often at costly personal sacrifice but always with great spiritual reward, to the Men for Missions pledge to Do, Go, and Give.

Journey with Warren as he shares about his early days, the men who have led him, and others who joined him along the way.

Hear personal accounts by men from across the United States – Ralph (Texas), Maury (Montana), and Paul (Illinois), to name a few – as well as those from other nations, like Jim (Canada), Bill (Scotland), and Emmanuel (Haiti).

Capture the vision of Men for Missions as Howard recounts the early days of the organization. Learn how Chuck, blinded from a mining accident, traveled extensively to share what was most important to him. Hear how Bud, ravaged by a terminal disease, changed a doctor’s life by jovially handling his final days on earth.

Sense the depressing squalor of native villages, the heart-stopping dangers Warren and John experience as they hear the nearby gunfire of armed revolutionaries to practically feeling the breath of a rogue elephant with John . . . and the Godly thrill of witnessing the moment a precious soul unites in spirit with Jesus Christ, the Savior of all who will come to Him.

Some of the men depicted in Still Sharpening were ready to enjoy well-deserved retirement when God irresistibly challenged them to start a new life on the mission field. Others knew all along they would serve the Lord as missionaries, but underwent years of preparation for the task.

Though they faithfully fight the same war, each of these spiritual soldiers is unique. No matter your background . . . your gifts . . . your personality . . . there’s something in Still Sharpening to challenge you, to encourage you, to change your heart and mind – forever.

Men for Missions is still looking for ordinary men - bricklayers, carpenters, architects, doctors, farmers, and the like - to join forces with them. Maybe the next book will have your chapter.
