  • OTHER THINGS, OUR LOVE STORY IS IN THE BOOK "UNSTOPPABLE."

  • IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT.

  • I COULDN'T FEEL MY LEGS WHEN I SAW HER, PALMS SWEATY, THE WHOLE

  • DEAL.

  • IT'S THIS REALLY COOL STORY.

  • WE WERE LOOKING IN 2013, AND WE, FUNDING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE

  • UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE MINISTRY WHERE I

  • CAN GO INTO PLACES LIKE CHINA, AND BE INVITED BY THE

  • GOVERNMENT, SPEAK TO 40,000 PEOPLE IN UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES

  • WHERE SADLY COLLEGE STUDENTS WERE JUMPING OFF BUILDINGS

  • BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID THERE WOULD BE NO JOBS AT THE END OF

  • THEIR STUDIES.

  • TOP 1% OF STUDENTS WERE COMMITTING SUICIDE.

  • WE WENT THERE, AND BY THE GRACE OF GOD THE CAMPUSES WE WERE ABLE

  • TO SHARE IN, 80% OF THOSE SUICIDE RATES DROPPED STRAIGHT

  • AWAY, AND THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT ASKED ME TO GO BACK.

  • THEY PUT ME ON TV TO 40 MILLION HOUSEHOLDS LATER, AND WE ARE

  • JUST SO THANKFUL FOR THAT OPPORTUNITY.

  • WITH THAT TRACT RECORD DOORS HAVE OPENING UP ALL ACROSS THE

  • WORLD INCLUDING PLACES LIKE VIETNAM.

  • US UNDERSTANDING THE UNIQUE CALLING WHERE GOD HAS CALLED

  • LIFE OUT LIMBS MINISTRY TO PREACH TO 7 BILLION PEOPLE.

  • MY GOD IS BIG, AND HE ALWAYS PAYS FOR WHAT HE ORDERS.

  • HE HAS ASKED AND CALLED ME AND MY WIFE TO TOGETHER PREACH TO

  • 7 BILLION PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

  • I JUST WANT YOU TO BE ENCOURAGED AND UNDERSTANDING IF YOU, FIRST

  • OF ALL, DO NOT FEEL THAT YOUR EVANGELICALLY IMMERSED AND

  • ENGAGED WITHIN YOUR CHURCH COMMUNITY SAN DIEGO, TO GET

  • ENGAGED.

  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

  • PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU'RE IN MINISTRY THROUGH THIS CHURCH

  • PARTICULARLY, ACTIVELY?

  • AWESOME.

  • IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE MORE PEOPLE HELPING YOU TO DO WHAT

  • GOD IS WANTING YOU TO DO.

  • THE REST OF YOU, I'M GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THAT AS WELL.

  • IT IS JUST AWESOME TO SEE GOD IMPLEMENTING THE CALLING AND

  • PURPOSE HE HAS SPECIFICALLY FOR YOU.

  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THAT.

  • ME AND MY WIFE, WE THOUGHT, WELL, OKAY, LET'S DO 27

  • COUNTRIES.

  • AND WE PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND WE LAID IT DOWN BEFORE THE LORD,

  • AND WE SAID, OKAY, WE WERE PLANNING THAT IN THE FIRST

  • QUARTER OF THIS YEAR WE WOULD DO ABOUT NINE OR TEN COUNTRIES, AND

  • THEN SORT OF OVER HERE IN AMERICA WE'LL DO SOMETHING LIKE

  • ANOTHER 13 COUNTRIES PLUS.

  • AND SO WE LOCKED IN THE STADIUM IT'S.

  • TOLD OUR COORDINATORS THAT WE'RE DOING IT.

  • GOD HAS CALLED US TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO 300 MILLION ACTUAL

  • SOULS.

  • WE GO INTO A NATION WE DO FOUR THINGS.

  • WE DO A STADIUM, A PRESS CONFERENCE, A GOVERNMENTAL

  • MEETING AND A HUMANITARIAN MEETING THAT IS BROADCAST.

  • I'M SO BLESSED THAT IN NATIONS WHERE SYSTEMS ARE NOT WELCOME

  • ALL THE TIME THEY PUT IT ON THE TELEVISION.

  • ABLE TO MENTION GOD, HEAVEN, JESUS, SALVATION, ON NATIONAL

  • TV.

  • GOT PICKED UP BY AP ASSOCIATED PRESS, YAHOO, CNN, AND FOX,

  • THEIR WEBSITE AS WELL.

  • THE HEADLINES, THIS LIMBLESS AUSTRALIAN EVANGELIST, SOMETHING

  • LIKE THIS.

  • THE COOL THING IS HAVING NO LIMBS, IF I DO SOMETHING WRONG

  • NO ONE IS GOING TO HANDCUFF ME.

  • I'M SPEAKING FAST.

  • I WANT TO YOU KEEP UP WITH ME AT THIS PACE BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT

  • TO SHARE.

  • I UNDERSTAND THAT MANY OF YOU HAVE HEARD MY TESTIMONY BEFORE.

  • PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU HAVE SEEN ME SPEAK BEFORE.

  • PUT YOUR HAND UP IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD ME SPEAK BEFORE.

  • PUT YOUR HAND UP IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME TO THIS CHURCH,

  • THAT ME AND MY WIFE, WE WERE PLANNING ON NOT HAVING CHILDREN

  • UNTIL LATER.

  • WELL, GOD VETOED THAT, AND IN SUCH AN AWESOME BLESSING HAVING

  • KEOSHI IN OUR LIFE.

  • WE HAD THE CHOICE TO EITHER CANCEL THE STADIUMS, PRESS

  • CONFERENCES, BLAH-BLAH-BLAH, OR CONTINUE ON.

  • MY WIFE AND I FELT THAT THIS YEAR WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT

  • YEAR IF I HAD TO GO WITHOUT THEM.

  • WE BELIEVE THAT GOD WANTED ME TO GO STILL.

  • AND LEAVING AN EIGHT-WEEK-OLD BOY WAS MY FIRST, JUST WAS HARD.

  • I JUST HAVE AN AMAZING WOMAN OF GOD STANDING BY ME IN MINISTRY.

  • SHE GOT THE ARTICLE, NICK'S ON YAHOO.

  • SHE SAID, BABE, IF YOU WERE GONE FOR THE WHOLE MONTH, JUST FOR

  • THE FRUIT OF VIETNAM THAT HAPPENED IN A WINDOW OF 48

  • HOURS, IT WAS WORTH IT.

  • THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

  • WE LIVE IN AN AWESOME TIME, SO GO, BABY, GO, IN OTHER WORDS.

  • SHE'S JUST AWESOME.

  • I WANT TO OPEN THAT UP AND ASK YOU FOR PRAYERS BECAUSE WE'RE

  • GOING TO 9 OF 13 COUNTRIES OF SOUTH AMERICA IN A FOUR-WEEK

  • SPAN.

  • EFFECTIVELY REACHING 140 MILLION MORE PEOPLE THIS YEAR.

  • 5% OF THE WORLD THROUGH OF OUR MINISTRY WILL HEAR THE GOSPEL.

  • WE'RE BLESSED.

  • WE'RE HONORED, WE'RE ENGAGED, AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S A

  • HARD THING.

  • MINISTRY IS NOT EASY.

  • CAN I HEAR AN AMEN.

  • YES, IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO TRY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN TO FIND YOUR

  • BALANCE IN WORSHIPING GOD FIRST AS A CHILD OF GOD.

  • HAVING THAT FAMILY AS A PRIORITY AND THEN MINISTRY, AND NO ONE

  • WILL EVER FIND A PERFECT BALANCE, BUT I WANT TO URGE YOU

  • IN UNDERSTANDING WHY WE DO THIS.

  • IT IS ALL ABOUT LOVE, L-O-V-E.

  • SAY LOVE.

  • WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT LOVE, I KNOW I HAVEN'T PRESENTED

  • ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE THE OTHER PREVIOUS SERVICE.

  • I WAS BLESSED, AND I'M SURE YOU WILL BE AS WELL.

  • TURN TO MATTHEW 7.

  • WE'RE GOING TO READ FROM THREE PASSAGES, ESPECIALLY IF YOU

  • HAVEN'T HEARD ME SPEAK BEFORE.

  • I'M GOING TO QUICKLY COVER MY TESTIMONY IN A FAST NUTSHELL FOR

  • THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW ABOUT MY STORY.

  • I'M 30 YEARS OLD, BORN IN AUSTRALIA.

  • NO ARMS, NO LEGS, BORN THIS WAY FOR NO MEDICAL REASON.

  • MY BROTHER AND SISTER BORN WITH LIMBS.

  • MY DAD WAS A PASTOR.

  • HAS BEEN FOR 27 YEARS.

  • HEARD ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD, HEARD ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD,

  • THERE WERE TIMES WHERE I WAS HAPPY AS A CHILD, BUT I ENTERED

  • DEPRESSION AS AGE 8.

  • I WAS IN DEPRESSION FOR FIVE YEARS FEELING THAT GOOD EITHER

  • WASN'T REAL, DIDN'T CARE ABOUT ME, DIDN'T LOVE ME, I WASN'T

  • GOOD ENOUGH.

  • I WASN'T PRAYING HARD ENOUGH, ALL THESE LIES.

  • WHATEVER THOUGHTS COME INTO OUR MIND, IF IT DOESN'T LINE UP WITH

  • GOD, IT ISN'T FROM GOD.

  • WE KNOW THE PRINCIPALITIES ON THE EARTH ARE TRYING TO TAKE OUR

  • HOPE.

  • JEREMIAH 29:11, GOD SAYS HE HAS A PLAN, HOPE, AND A FUTURE.

  • IF I WANT TO GIVE A GIFT, AND IF IT'S A GIFT THAT'S WRAPPED UP

  • FOR YOU TO ACTUALLY BENEFIT FROM ME GIVING YOU A GIFT YOU HAVE TO

  • RECEIVE IT.

  • YOU HAVE TO OPEN IT.

  • YOU HAVE TO OPEN UP THE BOX.

  • YOU HAVE TO GET THE MANUAL OUT.

  • THE MANUAL FOR LIFE IS THE WORD OF GOD.

  • THERE IS NO ONE GREATER.

  • IF YOU HAVEN'T FOUND YOUR PURPOSE YET AND YOU'RE STILL

  • LOOKING, YOU KNOW THERE IS A GREATER PERSON THAN JUST BEING A

  • GOOD PERSON.

  • YOU KNOW THERE MAY BE SOMETHING BEYOND THIS LIFE, THIS

  • 60-YEAR-OLD LIFE.

  • YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED FOR GOD FOR AN ETERNAL PURPOSE.

  • IF YOU FOUND THAT PEACE AND HOPE YET I WANT TO ENCOURAGE TO YOU

  • SAY THAT THERE IS NO ONE BETTER TO TELL YOU YOUR PURPOSE THAN

  • THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU.

  • SO STOP LOOKING AT YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, JUST LOOK UP.

  • FOR ME IT WAS VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT GOD COULD USE A MAN

  • WITHOUT ARMS AND LEGS.

  • AND THAT GOD COULD HAVE SOMETHING BETTER THAN NOT TO

  • GIVE ME ARMS AND LEGS.

  • IF I WAS DYING TO CANCER, TO ME THERE WOULD BE NOTHING BETTER

  • THAN FOR GOD TO HEAL ME.

  • I'VE EVEN MIRACLES.

  • I'VE SEEN BLIND PEOPLE, DEAF PEOPLE, AND YES, I HAVE A PAIR

  • OF SHOES IN MY CLOSET JUST IN CASE HE SAYS YES.

  • BUT I DIDN'T KNOW AS A CHILD, NOR DID MY PARENTS KNOW THAT GOD

  • WOULD USE ME THE WAY I AM TO SHOW THE MIRACLE THAT HAPPENS ON

  • THE INSIDE WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN OUTSIDE

  • MIRACLE.

  • YOU ALL HAVE ARMS AND LEGS, BUT LOOK AT YOU.

  • I'M KIDDING.

  • YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU NEED, AND ALL THE

  • THINGS THAT YOU WANT, BUT STILL FEEL EMPTY.

  • YOU CAN HAVE THE GREATEST LIFE ON THIS EARTH AND HAVE THE BEST

  • REPUTATION, THE BEST FRIENDS, THE BEST SPOUSE, THE BEST

  • FAMILY, THE BEST GRANDCHILDREN, THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AND HAVE

  • EVERYTHING, BUT IF YOU'RE 90 YEARS OLD, YOU'RE NOT--I'M NOT

  • TAKING MY HOUSE UP THERE.

  • I GOT A MANSION.

  • MY DRIVEWAY IS MADE OF GOLD UP THERE.

  • ALL RIGHT.
