Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. Psalm 116:15.
The Lord has done much good through this woman of God, and I believe my own wife’s healing is part of her legacy as well because the Lord used someone who was touched by the ministry of “The Happy Hunters”, both she and her husband Charles. It is fitting to honor God’s faithful servants.
Frances Eileen Hunter May 8, 1916 – July 14, 2009 –
Frances Eileen Hunter was born May 8, 1916 in a small town in
Illinois at a whopping 2 pounds, placed in a shoe box and not expected
to live for an hour much less 93 years. She is survived by her spouse
of 39 years, Charles Hunter (88).
Together, she and Charles have authored over 65 books. Millions of
copies have been given away and sold during the 40 years of their anointed
healing ministry. Many of these books have been translated into major
languages of the world. Charles and Frances, better known as “The Happy
Hunters”, cheerfully ministered all across the USA as well as in 49 foreign
countries. They are considered “Mom” and “Dad” to all the spiritual children
they have birthed around the globe. In addition, many miracle babies were
named Charles or Frances because Frances had a special anointing when
she prayed for couples who wanted children.
At 93, she still kept the office hopping with new creative ways to bring
more unsaved people into His kingdom as well as how to get everyone
healed from illness and out of bondage. She went into her office every
day and church every Sunday. Once a month, they held meetings at their
headquarters in Kingwood, TX. Twice a year they held three day seminars
which ended with an ordination service. They have ordained hundreds of
anointed servants into ongoing ministries for the Kingdom.
Frances has 2 children, 9 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Her
son, Thomas Steder is retired and lives in Florida. …Frances’ daughter,
Joan Eileen Hunter Murrell lives in Pinehurst, TX and is
married to Kelley Murrell…
Charles and Frances have lived enough for 50 people and seen more
miracles within one week of their ministry than most witness in a lifetime.
Countless thousands have been saved, healed and filled with the Holy
Spirit through their ministry. Many thousands have been trained to heal
the sick, thus multiplying the healing message like liquid gold spreading
across the globe.
Two obedient people with hearts sold out to God listened to their heavenly
Father and spread His word, His grace, His mercy, and His healing power
wherever they went. Their zeal for everything God had to offer was
contagious. Everyone who met them or heard them speak was forever
changed. The anointed books, videos, audios and teachings that they
imparted into the Body of Christ will go on forever and are still available
at their office.
Frances, in anticipation of this day, expressed her wishes that no flowers
be sent upon her passing. Rather, she asked that memorial gifts be made
to ensure that the world-changing work of Hunter Ministries will remain
active in the years to come. Frances, and her beloved Charles, made
bringing glory and honor to Jesus their life’s work. Though Frances has
gone today to be with her Lord, her legacy remains.
Memorial services are tentatively scheduled to be held in Houston, TX
