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.
