This is Cody with his cousin and little sister on the day he was deployed to Afghanistan. His mother is a friend of mine, and I remember how anxious she was on this day. Sending your baby off to war cannot be easy. We prayed for his safety.
They received word on Sunday that Cody was seriously injured out on the field early Sunday morning. He is in very critical condition.
He is just 21 years old.
Please pray for Cody, for his recovery, and that he is comforted by those caring for him until his mom can be there by his side. It must be very scary to be so hurt and yet not surrounded by family. Please pray for Cody's mother, that she has a safe journey to her son. As a mother myself, I can only imagine the overwhelming need and desire to be there with my baby when he is so hurt.
Cody and his mother, Kerri, on the day he was deployed.
