Shot 6 Times, not 5 Times: Hope When Your World Is Turned Upside Down [Video]

Craig HueyFaith, Life5 Comments

Two years ago, I was scheduled to give the Sunday morning worship service at The Ark “Calvary Chapel Montebello”.

My topic for the Bible study: Hope When Your World is Upside Down.

A week before I was on Fox talking about the spike in crime in California and elsewhere (See video here).

Little did I know that a few days later that my son Cory would be shot 6 times by gang bangers.

He flatlined on the operating table … two arteries were shattered … the doctors thought five bullets were in him, but just this year we discovered it was six.

Cory is a miracle to be alive and he is almost fully recovered from his severe injuries… by the grace of God.

He is now in Maine at a bible training school. And last week he got a great job.

He felt a bump on his back a few weeks ago… and they discovered it was another bullet – the 6th hollow-tip bullet.

He created the cross with two spikes – and put the bullet in the middle.

Thanks again for all those who prayed for him and helped him financially recover.

If you would like to send Cory a word of encouragement, feel free to drop him a note:

Cory Schaich
Calvary Chapel Bangor
154 River Road
Orrington, Maine 04474

The weekend after he was shot, I was to give three Sunday Morning Worship services at Calvary Chapel Montebello. Shelly was going to be there and give a prayer at the end.

You can watch the service here.

It’s God’s grace and mercy that strengthened us to deliver a message on hope. Hope is all we could grab hold of after the shooting.

I encourage you to watch the Sunday Morning service. My prayer is that it will encourage you and give you renewed hope.

    1. Thank you for your dedication in researching policies, laws, and candidates so that we can be informed of the truth and help us vote according to our Christian values.

      I am shocked to read here, for the first time, about your son’s attack. I thank God that Cory has recovered. You are providing a much needed and valuable resource for Christian voters everywhere, it’s no wonder satan is trying to attack you and your family. I will be keeping you and your family in prayer. Please keep up the good work. God bless you!
