I was blessed to be involved with a three day outreach with Nick Vuijicic in the Imperial Valley. He is an amazing man, with an incredible ministry that has reached over a billion people world wide. Nick was born without limbs, yet he has not let that stop him from doing things like, swimming, playing soccer, surfing, having a family or traveling the world to bring hope and inspiration and to share the good news of the gospel. Nick's ministry, Life Without Limbs, is an affiliate of Joni and Friends.
