/ -- Life Without Limbs founder and evangelist Nick Vujicic spent the past year traveling to 24 countries, telling packed audiences worldwide the story of how he overcame seemingly insurmountable physical obstacles to deliver a message of hope, love and the power of Jesus Christ. Now, the powerful story of Nick's World Outreach is being told via a first-of-its-kind web series that debuts today at lifewithoutlimbs.tv
Photo: During a visit to Quito, Ecuador in October 2013 as part of his World Outreach tour, evangelist Nick Vujicic spoke to 5,000 police officers and cadets of all ages at one of the police academies, encouraging them to seek strength in Christ and to work to honor God as a country.
New episodes will premiere today and every Monday at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. After the initial airing, each episode re-runs continuously at the top of every hour. Visitors to the site have the option of subscribing to the series, and a preview is now available on YouTube.
Born without arms or legs because of a rare disorder known as tetra-amelia syndrome, Nick says he "tried to give up" and attempted to drown himself at age 10. Now, married and with a young son, he is deeply grateful for the gift of life and uses his travels to encourage others around the world to find strength in Christ.
The web series documents Nick's 2013 outreach, which took him to Japan, Hungary, Vietnam, Hong Kong, South America and elsewhere across the globe. The power of Nick's evangelism drew an estimated total face-to-face audience of 400-thousand people throughout the outreach, including audiences as large as 35-thousand in Ho Chi Minh; an estimated 400-million worldwide heard Nick's message through TV broadcasts and other media.
What drew Nick to such an ambitious mission? "The opportunity to impact huge numbers of people through events and conferences was an amazing way to feel the joy of the Lord," Nick says. "Yet at the same time, it was the stories of individuals who showed how God works in our daily lives. I heard countless stories of joy, hope and inspiration. I thank the Lord for the chance to share their stories with the world."
Nick's story and message are resonating worldwide, generating more than 300-thousand followers on Twitter, 2.2-million 'likes' on Facebook and giving Nick the opportunity to communicate with a wide audience via television appearances on 60 Minutes, the Oprah Winfrey Network and elsewhere.
As Nick says in the web series trailer: "If you're alive, you have the gift of growing. Battle after battle, you need to understand: you will get through this. That's the power of hope...If you don't get a miracle, you can still be a miracle."
