Anatomy of a Miracle: Update on Cory Schaich

Craig HueyFaith, Family, Life3 Comments

As you may know, my 29-year-old son was shot 5 times by 3 gang members in an attempted robbery last March…

I wanted to give you an update on Cory’s current condition.

First, thanks so much for your prayers and encouragement. It has meant so much to Cory … and to our entire family.

Here are 8 things I want you to know.

  1. Yes, it’s a miracle. It’s a miracle he’s alive. It’s a miracle he’s progressing so fast. It’s only because of God’s mercy and grace – and people praying like yourself.
  2. He recently underwent surgery to reattach some muscles in his upper chest. This is the only additional surgery he has had, and it doesn’t look like any others will be needed. Two bullets that are still in his body – one in his hip, the other in his shoulder blade – are going to stay. They are not going to remove them.
  3. This has been a very traumatic experience for Cory, emotionally and psychologically, as well as physically … as you can imagine. So, please continue to pray for complete and total healing.
  4. Cory is working out almost daily … and he has been driving now for many months. He is just now recovered enough to apply for work. Pray he finds the right job.
  5. Cory is praying about going to Calvary Chapel Bible College in Murrietta. He is also looking at other options as well.
  6. Pray that God will give Cory wisdom regarding making the right decisions for his future calling and direction.
  7. Because of the incredible generous donations from readers, Cory has been able to keep current with his bills and not have to work while he is recovering. His money will be running out very shortly. We are all so very grateful of you who donated and helped financially. It was so awesome … and so badly needed. Thank you for your sacrifices!
  8. Let me update you on the 3 kids involved in the shooting and attempted robbery. Two of them spent 10 days in jail and then they were released. The Harbor Division police officers felt this was dangerous to the school and community to let the kids go. The shooter that attempted to kill my son was caught in July and is in Juvenile Hall. He is 16. There have been multiple court hearings and delays by his defense. On December 7th, the prosecution will be serving a motion to try the shooter as an adult. He’s a registered gang member and has prior convictions. Pray that justice will be served.

We give God the praise and glory for all He has done and is doing.

I will continue to update you in January.

Thanks for your prayers.

  1. Have Cory check out Life Pacific College (soon to be University, July 2019). I’ve read that it is one of the
    least expensive Christian colleges, and offers courses in a wide range of subjects besides Bible and Theology. Located in San Dimas, California.

  2. Because nothing is ever impossible for the Lord, I will pray the Lord remove the bullets. I had a very bad car accident and the doctor had to put metal pins in my leg and he said that in less then a year the pain would be so bad that he would have to operate to take them out, also I was limping because of the broken bones, but to God be a the Glory, I went home and read Mark ll:23-24 and meditated on it and by the end of the week I was not limping and it has been over 25 years and no operation. Tell your son to meditate on this scripture and speak to the mountain.
