Thomas Orjala

Thomas was introduced to the UB at age 20 and has been reading it for the last 46 years. Early on his passion was to share the book with as many people as possible and that desire has never waned. He has placed thousands of books and had many more conversations with truth seekers. In co-founding the Cosmic Café, he found a way to share revelatory concepts with the people in his community. Thomas also did what he called the 365 club. He introduced a person a day for a year just to see if it could be done (see the 365 club log for some interesting reading). Thomas currently is the Chair of the Outreach Committee and active in the Urantian Communities of the Pacific Northwest (UCPNW), an effort to develop regional activities in his home region. He currently resides in Coeur d Alene, Idaho with his partner Aurora.
