“If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!”
Imagine getting through your busy day without arms or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic (pronounced voo-yi-chich). Without any medical explanation or warning, Nick was born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without arms and legs. Three sonograms failed to reveal complications. And yet, the Vujicic family was destined to cope with both the challenge and blessing of raising a son who refused to allow his physical condition to limit his lifestyle.
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.
Since his first speaking engagement at age 19, Nick has traveled around the world. He has shared 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 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 2005, Nick made the long journey from Australia to southern California where he founded Life Without Limbs. He is currently serving as President and CEO.
Life Without Limbs (LWL) is an international non-profit ministry whose purpose is to saturate the world with the Gospel and unite the body of Christ through the life and testimony of Nick Vujicic. Since 2005, over one million people have made a decision for Christ through the ministry. Praise God!
LWL’s goal is to share the Gospel with one billion more people by 2028 through four main focus areas: Live Outreach Events, Prison Ministry, Digital Ministry, and Prayer & Encouragement.
