Ruth Parks


Originally from Arizona, Ruth temporarily re-located to the Seattle area for an opportunity to work more closely with The Boeing Company on one of their new airplane programs. After 17 years she now calls Seattle home. Ruth currently attends North Seattle Alliance Church and is actively involved with a number of mission and children’s related ministries.

During her first life changing trip to Helene in 1998, Ruth grew closer to Jesus and gained a new understanding of what it means to join God where He is at work. As a result she felt called to spend 2 years on staff in Helene during the early days of a full time ministry presence there. God continues to place the people of Helene on her heart, having returned to Helene many times since that first trip. God is still at work in the lives of the people of Helene and those that visit there and Ruth is pleased to be able to continue to share in His vision for Helene and Roatan through work of MEI.
