Limbless evangelist Nick Vujicic met a little girl who was also born without arms and legs just as he was in between his speaking engagements in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Australian-motivational speaker called the meeting a "divine appointment."

The little girl's nickname is Nik. Her Muslim parents drove seven hours to try to meet the "Life Without Limbs" founder Vujicic, only to arrive and find the venue was already filled, Vujicic said, according to his Facebook post. They waited for another four hours for the "Life Without Limbs" crew and Vujicic himself to leave, and managed to track them down. When the crew stopped for fuel, they came running out of their car.

"Her mother was crying, her father's face shining with joy. My heart was so drawn to them, even after chatting for just a short while," said Vujicic. "After a few hugs and kisses, and praying together, I invited them back to our hotel for a meal and some fellowship."

Vujicic learned that the little girl's father is a doctor, and her mother a nurse, and like his parents, they had no idea that she would be born without limbs until birth. The 30-year-old evangelist said he would maintain contact with them and encourage them as much as possible in the future.

"It's meeting like this remind me how love can bring together some of the most diverse people," he said. "I love that love knows no bounds."

Vujicic then concluded his post on social media with a scripture passage on love. "And now these three remains: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13)
