What People Are Saying About Ben Hardister and Faith without Honor Ben is a man with words. Words like integrity, passion, no fear, and “Never say no to God's need!” He single-handedly rescued us when there was no one else. He’s a man to be depended on, with or without money, because somehow he always gets what we need. He would give his last dollar to save a soul, and stand alone to defend the poor. He would search for a lost soul as if looking for gold. As the saying goes, “Many are called, but few are chosen.” Ben is one of the chosen.

Ben Hardister is a unique man, gifted in so many ways. A true friend, a mentor, motivator, man of God with astounding biblical insight. A huge heart for the world, who has blessed multitudes by putting his money where his mouth is. Never afraid to meet a challenge and never afraid to challenge all of us to take leaps of faith to accomplish great things for God. Ben put up a significant amount of his personal money and had six others join him in the challenge to purchase the " Marine Property " in Calcutta, India for the School of nursing. This was a huge $800,000 project. The ' Magnificent 7' as I call them, came, saw and gave. Today the huge health care system reaching 100,000 patients a year has nursing care because of Ben. Thanks is never enough. The rewards of Ben's sacrifices will be measured in eternal worth. As Ben would say "God moves when you move." Ben has taken on the challenge to have God’s blessing come down on all those that help to heal the open sore of the world. The world and the kingdom of God is a better place because of the giant footprint of faith and giving that Ben Hardister has left.

While serving in Venezuela as a missionary 18 years ago, I had the privilege of meeting Ben and Karen Hardister. Since the time we met we have partnered together to build drug rehab centers in Venezuela for more than five hundred kids. I have watched his passion for the lost as he helped to build an entire orphanage for the street kids of Mexico and most recently become a major partner in the building of a Teen Challenge center for girls in Cambodia. Through the eyes of men, Ben's view of giving to needs will separate the men from the boys. But through God's eyes, he tells us to have the faith of a child. Ben and Karen are some of the few people I met who have learn to trust God with a faith of a child, believing, trusting and holding God entirely to his promises. Nothing we hold here on earth is of any value except for the treasures that we store in heaven, Ben is the friend that you can always trust in not to tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. As you read through the pages of this book I pray that God will give you the child like faith that you can trust him for anything.
