Flattering shadows

That beautiful Peruvian woman healing and sleeping soundly in shadow is my Tata. For those of you who didn´t know and for those of you who did…she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about a month ago, but now, thanks to an Indian doctor, a bazillion gifted nurses, and all those wonderfully brilliant medical minds that illuminated such breakthroughs as this surgery decades ago…she is healing right quick and expected to recover to 100% health…haha…which she jokes is better than her normally operating 95%.

Thank you to everyone who prayed…those prayers worked and were amply answered by our God who neither needed to deliver her into this world, or from this disease. But, He loves her an awful lot, and realizes we do too…so…she´s going to be with us a good while longer. Praise God for the blessed exchange between the necessary petition from this world and His answers from the one that draws ever near.

Forgive the shadowy picture…my Tata was almost entirely against this picture, but I assured her I could hide her beautifully in shadows and such…to which she said, “Okay, but only if it´s flattering.”

This world stays one Peruvian richer…praise God!


About justingunter

I'm recently 29 years old, recently married and ready to change the world for God. He has called me to be a missionary! This means more than just changing zip codes and living in countries where I struggle (for a while) speaking the language the locals dream in. It means a lifestyle of sacrifice, audacious Hope and above all, a desire for Jesus simply because He is who He is. I moved to Franklin, TN in October 15th of 2012 and expect this to be the first of many changes for the great calling on the Gunter's life. Side note...I dig being married. It helps when you're married the best woman ever! Teale and I feel called to plant churches, combat sex trafficking and be a place of refuge and Holy sojourn to all who would seek to join alongside us for good or for a season. For now, Ol' Rocky Top is our home, Zoey is our Great Dane and we, the Gunters, love Jesus with all we have.

  1. Yay! I’m glad to hear that your Tata’s surgery went well and that she’s recovering quickly! I too, was praying for that! Ain’t Jesus awesome (I think that might be a little bit of my Alabama accent shining through…)?!

  2. I am pleased to see that your best girl is doing well. She’ll be back on her feet and beating you at Scrabble in no time.
