An inspiring evangelist who has no arms and legs shared the gospel message in eastern Europe and saw thousands come to Christ.
According to ChristianToday.com, Nick Vujicic recently toured Ukraine and Slovenia where he spoke to thousands of people who gathered to hear him talk about his own struggles and how Jesus has helped him overcome them.
At one gathering in Ukraine, where 5,000 people were in the crowd as Vujicic spoke, half of them reportedly gave their lives to Christ as he shared the gospel with them.
They "stood, repented, received Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are now being followed up with by the local church. Praise Jesus!" Vujicic excitedly shared.
Vujicic was also able to share his faith with the host of a popular TV talk show in Slovenia.
"Had the most amazing interview in Slovenia! The most popular talk show host talked to me about how my book Unstoppable changed her life and led her to find Jesus. Forty-five minutes later, we prayed for the country and God showed up big time! Thank you, sister!" he said.
In the book (which is his second), Vujicic discusses how he went through a time of depression and how God supported him and brought him through it.
"With me, in my life, I know that there are people who can get encouraged to see how God can use a man without arms and legs to be his hands and feet, but I wanted people to know that I am not a superhero, it is not about me, or how well I speak or articulate — it is the Spirit of God. It is an active relationship with him," he said.
