"Social media is a true blessing, allowing us to reach out and share a connection with people around the world on an ongoing basis," Nick said. "We have established an online community that numbers in the millions, and we are united by our faith and the inspiration we draw from His word."
The Life Without Limbs ministry has leveraged the power of technology in a number of other ways, including the recent launch of a free, innovative mobile application now available for download from iTunes and Google Play to use on a variety of Apple and Android mobile devices. The app's features are highlighted in a promotional video now on YouTube.
In addition, Nick has more than 318-thousand Twitter followers, and the Life Without Limbs ministry recently launched a hugely popular, first-of-its-kind web series documenting his World Outreach travels to 24 countries last year.
