Nick Vujicic, the world-famous motivational speaker born without arms and legs, visited Hungary again last weekend for a sold-out performance at the Papp László Sports Arena and a meeting with the country’s leaders.
“Where there is faith, there is always hope. Nick Vujicic has visited Hungary again,” Viktor Orbán wrote on his social media page. It was not the first time the Prime Minister had met the motivational speaker, Nick Vujicic had visited Hungary in 2019 as well, when he had also met and prayed together with Viktor Orbán.
In addition to the Prime Minister, Nick Vujicic also met with the Hungarian President. Katalin Novák wrote on her social media page: “To live without hands and feet, with faith and heart – I learn from Nick Vujicic every time I meet him. Thank you, Nick, for helping us appreciate our lives!”
Nick Vujicic’s Believe! Hope! Love! series of lectures set off at the Papp László Sports Arena on 11 March. The man, who lives in the United States, will give a lecture for students at the same venue on Monday 13 March, and will then speak to students at the National University of Public Service.
At Saturday’s lecture and the accompanying press conference,
Vujicic said he was delighted to be back in Hungary because it is a unique country with a conservative foundation.
He added that he wants to make his contact with Hungarians regular, plans to visit every year for the next 10 years and wants to bring his family to Hungary at some point.
Nick Vujicic was born to Serbian immigrant parents and was diagnosed at birth as suffering from so-called tetra-amelia syndrome, meaning he was born without arms and legs. He attempted suicide at the age of ten, but after this low point, he tried to live a full life and found Jesus and faith. At the age of 17, he started preaching and lecturing and founded his own non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs. He later married and now lives in Texas with his wife and 4 children, and he said he and his wife are currently working on adopting a fifth child.
