Eldis Kizer Parks
(As told by her daughter, Shirleen Parks Thomas)
Eldis, who is 88 years of age, was taken to the Wesleyan Camp Meeting as an infant, and as a small child, by her parents: Charlie and Emma Drury Kizer. She recalls walking up and down the aisles singing, "I want to be a worker for the Lord" when she was a very young age. Naturally, her parents were very proud of their little daughter, and first child, and I am sure were pleased to see her decision to work for the Lord at such an early age! I must add that Eldis has been singing AND working for the Lord 'low these many years'. And I have known of her love for the "Tabernacle at Hortense" all my life... as I am her daughter.
