SADLY REJOICING: THE LOSS OF T.W. HUNT

 

 

I've known T.W. Hunt so long, I don't even remember when I met him. It had to have been my first year at Southwestern Seminary, Ft. Worth, in 1986 where he taught before going to LifeWay as their first prayer consultant.

 

T.W., as he insisted I call him, was an incredible man of God. I loved spending time with him, talking with him, and praying with him. His death on December 11 was a great loss for God's work here on earth. But, as Scripture proclaims, to live is Christ and to die is gain (Phil 1:21); a concept to which he'd heartily attest. Our loss is definitely heaven's gain. So, sadly, I rejoice with him in his home-going.

 

T.W. wrote the forward to Lygia's book in which she included an article about his influence on us. A noted teacher and popular conference speaker, he was keenly aware of the spiritual warfare going on around us and the power of God to rebuke and overcome the enemy. We were with him at the Glorieta Conference Center near Santa Fe years ago when he was teaching on prayer. The more he talked about God, the dimmer the lights became. What happened next was incredible. Lygia wrote about this in her article: I Want to Be Dangerous if you'd care to read it. He was definitely a fascinating man of God.

 

He invited Lygia and me to his room to spend some time in prayer with him and his wife. Lygia and I were always both appreciative of our time with them and encouraged by their walks with God.

 

T.W. was not only a dear brother in Christ, but also a committed prayer warrior for my family and me. Every few weeks, one of us would call the other and talk, share prayer concerns, and spend time praying for one another. He told me often: "Ken, I love you and I pray for you and Lygia every day!" He was faithful to tell me about a new book he was working on, what ideas he had for future books, and to share with me new truths God was teaching him. I loved my regular times of prayer with him and was privileged to even know him. I was also honored that he took time to mentor me and to set an example for me in finishing the race set before him.

 

T.W., I miss you already. Thank you for loving Jesus and living for Him.
