Dear Beloved Friends,
Springing into new growth!
Our household continues to see new growth. As Gideon grows and prepares to make his debut into this world, excitement grows daily. The garden is in and the rain continues to fall preparing the way for a great harvest. Jamin has completed his training and is now focused on training other men so they can begin to minister to the broken men within the IHOP community. This has been a wonderful season for him to be able to be in the Prayer Room for longer periods of time and receive a greater understanding of His heart for Prisoners of Hope men. Sarah has now paused her ministry times and hair to focus primarily on the arrival of Gideon. We had an amazing shower and were showered with gifts and encouraging and loving words over Gideon and our family. Libby graduates pre-k this month and will have her ballet recital. She had her first dental appointment and was told she had to stop sucking her thumb. She did cold turkey! We were blessed with tickets to Jesus Culture (it was amazing) and our last family vacation as the 3 of us, to the Great Wolf Lodge here in Kansas City.
Joseph Company is a ministry of the International House of Prayer seeking to, restore God‘s purpose and vision for the marketplace, equip marketplace believers in prayer, develop passion for Jesus in the marketplace, have prophetic understanding of the times and seasons in relation to God‘s plan for cities, nations, and the marketplace. We define the marketplace as any arena of life outside of the walls of the Church. We believe the Lord is calling for those who are like Joseph of Genesis 45, who will preserve life, store wealth (and food), and help establish cities of refuge. Holy Spirit is raising up forerunners in the marketplace who are cultivating a life of prayer, intimacy with Jesus, and prophetic insight into God’s strategies. Gone are the days of the marketplace being viewed as secular and devoid of God’s presence or purposes. It is the great mission field for which God is raising up His servants to express the kingdom. We have a conference June 7-9.
God loves to show us his goodness! Knees have been a big theme this month. Jamin was able to pray for a few men for physical healing and each had significant pain in their knees leave instantly. One of the young men also had daily headaches and had one before we prayed. His headache was gone after prayer. Go God!
Specific prayer requests: we are starting a Prisoners of Hope minor team that will minister to those under 18 here on the missions base, Jamin to hear clearly as he works to establish the foundation of the mens ministry team in Prisoner of Hope, the birth and health of Gideon and Sarah, and for more please check our website as we are learning to update it regularly.
We want to thank you for your faithfulness in partnership. You help to make it possible for us to minister to the broken, bound, and oppressed. May the God of Peace richly bless you and your family!
With Love, The Hacker Family
