Jennah and Evan Wise are some of the most sacrificial and giving people on the planet. They give their time, money, and hearts to serve as youth leaders and mentors at the Crossings Church. Their home has been a safe haven for teens in less than ideal living situations. Both have dreamed of having their own child for a long time, but have suffered from miscarriages and health issues that made the idea of having their own child seem impossible. They have held stronger to their faith in God through those dark times, continuing to love and sacrifice.
Jennah and Evan learned that they were pregnant with a little boy about 7 months ago, and were over-joyed with how God provides. Unfortunately Jennah was suffering from severe pre-eclampsia and diabetes and has been at the hospital on doctor ordered bed rest for several weeks now. Their baby boy was suddently born on Dec. 27th at St. Mary's Hospital. As to be expected Ezra is only 3.3lb and 17in tiny. As a premature born he will be kept in the NICU until the doctors discharge him.
Jennah is therefore unable to work, and had no way to financially prepare for this. With the hospital being 45 minutes from their house expenses such as the hospital bills, gas to travel back and forth for Evan and Jennah, and being down to a one income family with no notice is trying, to say the least.
Thank you for your prayers and thoughts.
Please also consider giving to this family who has given so much to others. Any little bit helps! Thank you :)
