World-renowned speaker Nick Vujicic, born without arms or legs, inspired Southern Adventist University students and community members during convocation on Thursday, March 26.
Vujicic’s message to students was one of hope in the midst of despair, and to let God guide your life and never give up. He shared how at the age of 8 he contemplated suicide. He went on to share his journey of discovering God’s love and finally understanding that he is whole whether or not he has arms or legs.
“He is using his disabilities to do things that people with arms and legs could never do,” says Doug Baasch, senior music performance major and Student Association president. “It shows that when something seems like it’s really bad, God uses it for a lot more good than you could have thought.”
Vujicic went into full-time ministry after graduating from college in 2003. His ministry, Life Without Limbs, has allowed him to travel to 24 countries and reach more than three million people worldwide with his story. To date, he has spoken approximately 1,500 times, and schedules 250 speaking engagements each year.
“I think that being a servant of the most high God is the greatest calling in the world,” says Vujicic.
