Supernatural Power

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized

The phone call that no one wants to get came in on the night of March 5th.
I heard what Craig was saying. And I couldn’t believe it.
I immediately cried out to God, “Save my son!! You have the Power, God, Do it!!!”
Cory had been shot five times, and was in the operating room.

I didn’t know the details. I just knew that God had to do some intense miracles.

I sent out an emergency text for prayer. It was 10:00pm.

Two back-to-back, extensive surgeries and 16 hours later; Cory was in the ICU.

I prayed the surgeons would participate in the Presence of Our Almighty God and see miracle after miracle. And they did!!
Two bullets hit major arteries. He should have bled out on the scene. He didn’t.
I’m convinced that angels were right there, plugging those shattered arteries.
He lost so much blood, he flat lined at 11:00pm. But God brought Cory back.
Cory went through 15 liters of blood, equivalent to three whole body volumes.

Just those miracles alone surprised the doctors, nurse and technicians, that were working on Cory’s case. The head vascular surgeon came to see Cory, on the third day that Cory was out of surgery. When she came out of his room, we said “Thank you and your trauma team and God for saving our son”. She said “Oh no, it was ALL God” while pointing up!! She saw the miracles with her own eyes. Despite her team and her professional training and expertise, she KNEW what took place was supernatural!!

Two other bullets entered Cory’s abdomen. Once again, the surgeons were surprised and admitted to us that they were confused. The only structure that was damaged was the colon. They were able to successfully resect it. The surgeons said anytime they have a gunshot victim that has been hit in the abdomen, the bullet twists and turns inside and destroys many organs that are in the way. Most of the time, patients die because the damage is so extensive. Another miracle.

And there are many more miracles, big and small that took place, each day…

He spent 25 days in the hospital. He is now home. He has 8 different specialists working with him. He has a long road to recovery.

As you can imagine, this past month has been a HUGE BATTLE but filled with continual supernatural miracles!! Every day we rejoice and are in awe of what the Lord is doing through Cory. God is good ALL the time.
Pray for complete spiritual, emotional and physical healing for Cory. Being a victim of an attempted murder is a lot to unpack.
Pray the Holy Spirit will guide and direct every decision Cory makes.
Pray that the Holy Spirit downloads His blueprints for Cory’s calling.
Pray that the three gang bangers who tried to rob Cory will be apprehended immediately before they wreak more violence on innocent victims. The detectives told us the shooter is 17, and is named Alberto. Pray for him specifically. Only Jesus can heal hate. Only Jesus can heal anger. Only Jesus can be the One and Only Hope for these kids. (John14:6)
The bible is very clear that “vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord”. What man and the broken juvenile court system in CA could do to these kids is nothing compared to the wrath of God. (Romans 12:19)

You can be a miracle for Cory by doing the following:
1. Add Cory to your prayer list daily (and your churches prayer list)
2. Cory will not be able to work for a long time, pray that he will qualify for disability.
***A site has been set up to accept donations that will be used for Cory’s additional medical and living expenses during his recovery and physical rehabilitation.

You can donate online at https://www.paypal.me/CraigHuey

All funds go directly to Cory.

Or if you would like to send a check, make it out to Craig Huey and write “for Cory” on the memo line and send it to:

Craig Huey
21171 S Western #260
Torrance, CA 90501

Again, all funds go directly to Cory. Every donation helps. Whether big or small. It’s a miracle to Cory and a miracle to Us.

3. Please pray for Craig & me too, this has really been hard.

Holey Roof

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

We have a set of beautiful French doors in our bedroom. It’s great having them open so the fresh breeze can flow in. However, with unpredictable “cold” weather, the doors stay closed, most of the time. A stale and musty smell became more and more evident. Yuck. We had no choice but to open the doors to let the room air out. Within the hour the corrupt smell dissipated. The recent downpour of rain managed to pound through holes in our roof and seep into our walls. We were clueless our roof had holes. Our roof looked great! Who Knew? But inside revealed a different story.

Tagged Out

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

The street I grew up on was filled with dozens of kids, of all ages. We could go outside, any time and immediately find friends to participate in a baseball or football game. As the sun went down, we all knew our parents would open the door and call us in for supper. After supper, we couldn’t wait to go back outside to play. Our favorite game at night was called Ghost in the Graveyard. A frightening name for Hide and Seek, and a perfect setting for us kids. We wore dark clothes, so that no one could see us, or tell us apart.Continue reading

Killer Dog

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

 

Many years ago we were fortunate to get a Rottweiler puppy. We named her KD.

KD stood for Killer Dog. KD really was the polar opposite of her name. The kids were very little and the innocent puppy was very gentle with them. We knew that we had to train her quickly, as she was growing fast. One of my favorite things to do was to go on a walk with our double stroller. I plopped the kids into their seats and strapped them in, baby in the back and the toddler in the front. Of course, KD wanted to come with us. I had a long leash and decided to train KD to walk right next to the stroller.  I cinched up her leash so she stayed in close.  As she got bigger, I had no choice but to wrap her leash around my waist, because she was getting stronger and harder to manage. But she didn’t seem to mind, and stayed the course. KD got encouragement from me and the kids would gently pat her back. She would occasionally sneak a kiss on the kids when we stopped for a break. We were quite the crew.Continue reading

Esperanza

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Sometimes you get the honor to be with someone who has recently
Experienced true loss.
Loss that is relational. Loss that is financial. Loss that is physical.
It really doesn’t matter. Loss is loss.
Gripping sadness. Overwhelming fear of the future.
Heartbreaking death. Tragic devastation.
You may not be able to exactly relate.
Because your losses are different.
But you get the privilege to look deep into the eyes of someone who has lost greatly.Continue reading

Chopped Up

By shellyhuey | Uncategorized , Victory Update

Prepping for last nights chopped salad required thought and planning on my part.

I opened my refrigerator door, (I knew what I had in there), but hoped something new would magically appear and save me from a trip to the store. I had a sneaking feeling there would be a problem and just knew something would be missing.

So, I started to take careful inventory.Continue reading
