Nick Vujicic, the "limbless" evangelist of Life Without Limbs ministry, plans to launch a new Web series documenting his travels this year to 24 countries where he preached the Gospel and shined a light into the lives of thousands and in some cases, tens of thousands who turned out at every event to hear him.
"This world really needs hope. This world really needs direction. This world really needs truth," says Vujicic in the four-minute promotional video for his "World Outreach" Web series.
The "World Outreach" series, which officially launches Dec. 16, is a first for Vujicic, whose story of finding strength and purpose for life in Christ has won him many admirers and supporters around the world. The 31-year-old married father has a rare disorder called tetra-amelia syndrome, resulting in his lack of limbs. Vujicic has often testified of attempting suicide as a child and growing depressed due to his disabilities, before realizing as a teen that his story could serve as encouragement to others. more >>
A curious photo montage of Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama and Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at late South African leader Nelson Mandela's tribute has been making the rounds online Tuesday, with speculation that Mrs. Obama was none too pleased with her husband taking a selfie with the Danish leader.
According to a photo shared online by Agence France-Presse, the testy affair may have been sparked after President Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Prime Minister Thorning-Schmidt got up close and personal for a self-portrait, with the Denmark leader sandwiched in the middle.
Clearly, Mrs. Obama had no interest in getting involved. more >>

YouVersion's newest creation, The Bible App for Kids, has already been downloaded more than a million times since it was made available less than a week after its release on Thanksgiving Day. The app was developed in collaboration with the international ministry OneHope.
"Just like we've seen the Bible App transform how our generation is engaging with Scripture, we believe the Bible App for Kids will change how the next generation discovers the grand narrative of the Bible," said Bobby Gruenewald, innovation pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma, which created YouVersion.
The primary catalyst for the project was the YouVersion community itself, "the world's largest digital Bible-sharing community," the Bible App creators say. Though some kids are already using the original Bible App, it wasn't really made with them in mind. YouVersion moved forward with the project when its survey indicated that more than 95 percent of its community of parents surveyed would be interested in the Bible App for Kids and that it would help their children engage with the Bible more in their everyday lives. more >>
