The God Who Sees: Jenna – A Save Story from Houston, Texas

Do you recall the Bible story in Genesis about the Egyptian slave girl, Hagar, who was feeling completely overwhelmed when she found out she was pregnant?

God met her tenderly in her desperate straits.

And, in experiencing His tender mercies, Hagar proclaimed, “You are a God of seeing.”

This same “God of Seeing” continues to intervene powerfully in the lives of women facing unexpected pregnancies today!

Jenna had fully intended to not have any more children.

She felt constrained in all areas of her life, and it was all she could do to get through each day with the children she already had.

Though her boyfriend wanted her to continue with their newly-discovered pregnancy, Jenna’s mind was firmly made up: Abortion would be the “quick solution” she thought she needed.

Jenna turned to Google.

When she called the phone number she found in her search, she did not realize she was calling a life-affirming pregnancy center.

She thought she had connected with an abortion provider.

However, the God Who Sees had other plans for her.

He used Heroic Media’s OAASYS Emergency Response ad to get Jenna through the doors of our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Houston.

And it was there that Jenna’s story took a completely different turn!

During her appointment at the center, Jenna appeared impatient and agitated, and was not willing to talk much with the client advocate.

She just wanted to know how she could go about obtaining an abortion.

Her client advocate, however, was able to convince her to get an ultrasound.

To Jenna’s great surprise – and shock – the ultrasound revealed that she was carrying twins!

Though still feeling overwhelmed, Jenna realized that she could not go through with aborting two lives.

The compassionate staff at the pregnancy center assured Jenna that they would help her with resources should she decide to continue with her pregnancy.

Jenna made the decision for life! Your support of Heroic Media gave Jenna the chance to experience the loving compassion of the God Who Sees and helped her make the empowering choice for life!


Genesis 16:13: “You are a God of seeing… truly here I have seen Him who looks after me.”
