Limbless evangelist Nick Vujicic has thanked God after his team witnessed 400 000 people repent of their sins and begin their spiritual journey with Jesus Christ at a recent event in Ukraine.
“The biggest event that our team at Life Without Limbs has seen and maybe the largest event ever in Europe – 800 000 people in the streets of Kyiv Ukraine! Thank you God,” Vujicic wrote on Facebook on Tuesday.
“400 000 repented of their sins and began their spiritual journey with Jesus — Now LWL celebrates the witness of 1 million decisions to walk with and trust God in everything face to face,” he added.
Vujicic, 33, also said he recently stopped in Russia on his evangelism tour, where he stayed for 40 hours.
“Unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet the President this trip but we continue to plant seeds of love and hope across this country until some unique doors open to share — thank you for your support,” he wrote in an update.
Vujicic was born without arms or legs, and was given no medical reason for this condition. Despite the challenges he’s faced, he is today a world-renowned inspirational speaker and author.
On the Life Without Limbs website, Vujicic said he started his ministry to encourage others who, like him, have faced “countless challenges and obstacles,” to remember that with God, anything is possible.
“Life Without Limbs is all about sharing this same hope and genuine love that I have personally experienced with people all over the globe,” he said. “It’s been said that doors open to a man without arms and legs much more easily than to anyone else, we thank God for providing that privilege. I’ve been invited into very unexpected places to share about my faith in Jesus Christ and literally millions have responded.”
The evangelist said he’s travelled to over 63 countries to share the gospel, and his “greatest joy in this life is to introduce Jesus to those I meet and tell them of His great desire to get to know them personally by allowing Him to become their Lord and Saviour.”
“Because of the ministry of Life Without Limbs, God has used me in countless schools, churches, prisons, orphanages, hospitals, stadiums and in face-to-face encounters with individuals, telling them how very precious they are to God,” he said. “It is our greatest pleasure to assure people that God does have a plan for each and every life that is meaningful and purposeful, for God took my life, one that others might disregard as not having any significance and He has filled me with His purpose and showed me His plans to use me to move hearts and lives toward Him.”
