Vale Doug Orr

Greg Harris - National Director   

Today I write to you with some sad news. Our brother in Christ and Nomads Coordinator Doug Orr has been called Home. While we grieve with Fran, their family and the BCA Nomads, we rejoice that Doug had a sure and certain hope in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Doug & Fran have been part of the Nomads program since its inception. Keen caravaners, they first travelled across Australia in 2009. They saw first-hand the difficulties of those working in isolated churches with transient populations. They were so keen to encourage others to assist, that it was no surprise they took over the role of Nomads Coordinators from Max & Jan Boyley upon their retirement at the end of 2011.

In encouraging others Doug said: “We should not lose sight of the rich rewards that fellowship, support and sharing brings both to ourselves, and significantly to those in the field in near and isolated locations.”

Doug was a good & faithful servant and we were so blessed by his dedication to the BCA Nomads Program. Please join me in upholding Fran and their family in prayer as they grieve Doug’s passing.
