Boris Vujicic, the father of famous evangelist Nick Vujicic who was born without arms and legs, has passed away and gone “to Heaven,” according to his son.
“To all who have been graciously holding Dad and our family before the Lord Jesus in prayer, thank you all from our family’s hearts for your love, prayers and support,” Vujicic wrote in a Facebook message on Sunday.
“Boris Vujicic went to Heaven to be with our Almighty God today,” he announced, without providing further details. “We love you all”
Vujicic is one of the most popular evangelists on social media, with over nine million people liking his Facebook page.
He has spoken to millions around the world through motivational speeches and his books, telling people that by relying on God, they can overcome even the most serious challenges in life.
The evangelist, who at one point in his life considered suicide due to being bullied, has started initiatives such as Attitude is Altitude, focused on transforming people’s lives with the message that “every person has value, that everyone is worthy of being treated with respect, dignity and love.”
He has also ministered to incarcerated people in state prisons across America, telling them that “there is hope beyond what you see.”
