Sad news is going viral in the Christian music community today as singer, Josh Wilson, reaches out to seek help for one of his band members. Wilson is known for hits like “I Refuse.” Having a young family himself, we know this hits home for him and the rest of the band. Wilson recently shared that his guitar player, Nathan Johnson, is going through a terrible time.
His wife, Megan, passed away this week after giving birth to a sweet daughter named Eilee Kate. Wilson shared that the delivery was smooth and mom and baby got to spend about 6 hours together. However, things took a turn quickly and Megan went home to be with our Heavenly Father.
“Needless to say, Nathan is devastated. There are no words for this, so I won’t really say much more. Here is what I know. Nathan is a wonderful man and an amazing father. He loves his daughter dearly.”
It’s absolutely tragic news and our hearts sincerely go out to Nathan and his family. Josh has created a GoFundMe account to help raise funds for Nathan to take several months off of work without out having to worry financially. Prayers are also invaluable at this time. Pray that Nathan will become the father God has always intended him to be. Pray that little Eilee will grow strong in the Word and will become an amazing woman of God.
Lord, we lift Nathan up today.
