Nick Vujicic at Telford State Prison

 

My name is Nick Vujicic and I’m 33 years old. I was born without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given me the strength to surmount what others might call impossible.
I'm totally in love with the awesome work Life Without Limbs is doing in the lives of inmates, inmate families, prison guards and prison staff through our jail ministry.

It all started last May when I spoke to inmates at the Barry Telford Unit in Texas.
I heard that the measure of success for a prison program is based on how many inmates get up to use the restroom during the presentation. God was good that day last May...not one inmate left the room for the entire time I was speaking. Not just that, but I could literally see their eyes smiling as the truth of God started to seep in through the walls of their hearts. Only God can do that!

Here's what one inmate told me, with tears streaming down his face...
"I've been in jail for 16 years and I'm getting out in two months. Before today, I was so scared! Now that you've shared the love of God with me, I know I will find a way to survive...because of Jesus. Thank you!"

Missing Children Canada Society
When a child first goes missing, the police, the media and the community rally together to help the terrified family search for their child. But as time goes by, that involvement gradually decreases, leaving the family to continue their search – seemingly alone.
The Missing Children Society of Canada was established in 1986 to help these families.
Since then, our unique and comprehensive programs have assisted police and families in active and ongoing searches for missing children, helping to bring answers and reuniting missing children with their families.

Christian Parents Forum

XXX

Christian Parents Forum was created with the goal of building an online community of Christian parents. With God’s help, this community will grow to not only be a source of information and fellowship for Christian parents, but also a venue that will be both an outreach and resource to the parenting community at large.
Parenting is a tough job….really tough. At the same time, it’s arguably one of the most important jobs any of us will ever have. Hopefully this online community gives you a chance to help others, to be helped, to make new friends, and to grow as a parent. If one person accepts Christ because of this community, then it’s a huge success. With God’s help this community will have a positive impact on the lives of many parents and children.

How successful will we be in fulfilling that mission? The countless hours of hard work that have been put into Christian Parents Forum to date won’t be the deciding factor. It won’t be the dedication of the administrator and moderators. It won’t even be because of all the awesome people that are and will be a part of this community. The outcome of this effort will be whatever God has it planned to be.....
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed..... In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Proverbs 16:3,9

Children, Youth, and Depression

While we may think of low mood or other challenges as adult problems, they can affect people at any age. Children and teens can experience mental illnesses like depression. Sometimes it can be difficult for adults to understand how difficult children’s problems can be because we look at their problems through adult eyes. But the pressures of growing up can be very hard for some children. It’s important that we remind ourselves that while their problems may seem unimportant to us, they can feel overwhelming to young people. It’s important to take depression in young people seriously.

COMBAT PORNOGRAPHY
THE PROJECT

Our goal is to create a feature length documentary to COMBAT PORNOGRAPHY addiction among children and teens.


PLEASE SEE WEBSITE AND VIEW TRAILER
Would You Like to Host a SCREENING

THIS NEW RESOURCE WILL SERVE TWO PURPOSES:

First, it will educate the viewer about:
  • The life of porn stars
• The damage porn can cause (including the objectification and abuse of women and children)
• The growing epidemic of heavy porn exposure
• Usage and addiction amongst children and youth

Second, it will propose a solution:
We think that adult websites should be mandated to install meaningful age verification systems so that no one under the age of 18 can access their highly addictive material.
This new law would help protect our kids online and provide an easy and effective way for parents and caregivers to prevent their children from being exposed to pornography.

Project Info:
Over 18 is a clear-eyed examination of modern pornography and its effects on kids, teens, parents, and porn stars. The goal of the project is to educate youth on the realities of pornography, help their parents understand the growing epidemic of hardcore porn usage, and propose solutions for preventing exposure and addiction in the first place.

Publicity:
We will provide a publicity package to help you invite people to the screening.

Event
Run Time: The film is 75 mins, so expect your event to be about 2 hours with intro and closing.

Resources:
We will provide a stack of printable resources to help parents, teachers, and addicts.

What does the evening look like?
Here's the basic setup:
-the host introduces the night and the film
-film plays
-optional: you can round up a panel of local experts, or invite one of the directors in for a Q+A (email for more details)
-host wraps the event
-people stick around to sign petitions, talk, explore resources, etc.

Tech Requirements:
We’ll mail you an encrypted USB key. Plug it into your laptop and you’re good to go! Once your event is over, just mail it back in the envelope provided.

What's the cost?
The cost for a standard screening license is $195. We typically average 100-200 per screening, so it works out to less than a tea or coffee per person!
