Helen Jean Parks was a very gifted person who could have pursued a variety of careers. She chose to serve her Lord Jesus and His peoples of the world as an intercessor, a missionary and an equipper/encourager of missionaries. A quote by C.T. Studd captures well her life-long attitude:

Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Helen Jean Parks sought to do the will of God in everything in her life. On September 13, 2021, she passed from this life and entered into the Lord’s heavenly presence! She is now experiencing her “forever life!” While she was not perfect, she definitely gave it her all. We are excited for her as she is more vibrantly alive than she has ever been. She is in the presence of her beloved Savior, Jesus Christ, along with beloved family members as well as people who are there because she was used to bring them to Jesus. What a reunion and celebration she is experiencing with them as they worship Jesus together!

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to share the Gospel where it has not been heard. READ THE FULL OBITUARY
