A million.

A hard to grasp number. I mean, don´t get me wrong…I´ve heard it tossed around enough to know of it, but I don´t really know its vastness. Here in Napa Valley where I grew up there are homes that are million dollar fixer-upers. Again, I know what the number is, and I can even see it in home value, but I don´t know the number. The same way I´ve let slip far too many times the wining statement, “I´m starving”.. but I have no idea what it is to really starve.

So, when a woman and her vision, handed down from God, speak and trust, in Promise, to save a million of these little ones in the name of Christ… if I´m being entirely honest… I find myself very quiet and very humbled. I wonder if a good question for all of us is not…do I really believe He could do that…that He will do that…that He´s already begun such a feat?

Help us with our un-belief Father… all of us… on either side of Grace. (Mark 9:24)

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.
