A letter from David Crain, Interim National Director BCA
It is with very heavy hearts that we write to you this morning. Our dear brother in Christ Bruce Chapman’s battle with melanoma has ended. This morning (7/05/19) God took him to glory and welcomed him home as a good and faithful servant.
Bruce touched so many lives during his ministry in Sydney and the Northern Territory. He recently wrote an article for the upcoming winter edition of The Real Australian and he was so grateful for the opportunity to serve our gracious God. “The last ten years has been our small part in God’s grand plan and we’re so thankful for the privilege it has been.” Bruce referenced many Bible verses in his article including Romans 8:28-29 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”
As soon as we know further details as to a memorial service for Bruce we will let you know.
Please uphold in prayer Jodi, Matthew, Laura, Felicity and Oliver as well as Bruce’s parents, brothers and their families.
Please direct messages of condolence, remembrances and prayers to the BCA National Office, we will collect these and pass them onto the family.
- Thank God for the privilege of living in a peaceful democracy.
- Pray for our newly elected government – for wisdom and compassion as it leads and serves our nation.
- Pray for Christian members of Federal Parliament in all parties as they seek to live out their faith in a demanding context.
