Sierra and Chris always dream of living a “not normal” life, picturing a life overseas or being a part of radical ministry on the island of O’ahu, their current home. When the news came that Sierra was pregnant with her first child, there was so much excitement at the thought of a new addition to the family joining in on this extraordinary life. 

Baby Jack Rehrer was soon after diagnosed with an extreme case of Spina Bifida, effecting his spine and brain. It is predicted that he will not be able to walk or feel sensation below his waist, it’s heartbreaking to imagine this condition hindering his ability to live life to the fullest. For months Sierra and Chris have made huge efforts to get the best help they can for Jack, traveling for medical advice, appointments, and prayer. They’ve already experienced God’s intercession in their journey through answered prayers and miraculous provision. 

They are now in Boston acting on the incredible opportunity to have Jack cared for by Dr. Benjamin Warf, a pediatric neurosurgeon who is the best in the world in his practice.  He is also a man of amazing faith in God, who prays for his patients, and carries the peace and hope of Jesus wherever he goes. They knew Jack would be in the best hands there! 

Baby Jack may have to spend his first one-to-three months in Boston in NICU before returning home to Hawai’i.  They are planning two operations there.. one for his back and another for hydrocephalus.  This website is to keep you updated on the daily progress for Jack and daily prayer requests for this family of 3! Thanks for being part of their journey!
