Born with no arms and no legs, most people would have given up. Most people do give up even with much more. Not Nick Vujicic. He has turned his disability into an ability to speak to young people about God. No arms. No legs. No problems.
Nick’s YouTube videos show him engaged in all kinds of activities such as swimming, fishing, or football, just like normal able-bodied people do, but with twice the enthusiasm. He travels around the world to speak in small private gatherings events and or big stadiums events. He speaks against bullying, about self-esteem, and about trusting Jesus.
The 36-year-old Australian and father of two four will be in Manila on August 8, 2019 during the day one main session of the Jesus Global Youth Day in Mall of Asia Arena. Those who wish to see and hear him speak can buy tickets at SM Tickets.
According to Nick’s bio on www.lifewithoutlimbs.org: “The early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick constantly wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose.
According to Nick, the victory over his struggles, as well as his strength and passion for life today, can be credited to his faith in God. His family, friends and the many people he has encountered along the journey have inspired him to carry on, as well.”
Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world, sharing his story with millions, sometimes in stadiums filled to capacity, speaking to a range of diverse groups such as students, teachers, young people, business professionals and church congregations of all sizes. Today this dynamic young evangelist has accomplished more than most people achieve in a lifetime. He’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. In 2007, Nick made the long journey from Australia to southern California where he is the president of the international non-profit ministry, Life Without Limbs, which was established in 2005.”
Nick’s bio ends with a challenge that should convince anyone about serving Jesus. Nick says, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!”
