The flying padre

I met Pastor David Shrimpton in August 2015 in Dubbo, where he was attending a Uniting Church conference. At the time, David was the church's flying padre. From his home base in Broken Hill, he covered more than half-a-million square kilometres, providing a vital support service to the stoic families of outback New South Wales and South Australia. You can read David's story here.
