Thursday May 10th Colleen Update

Journal entry by Nick Parsons – 14 hours ago

This afternoon at 12:55pm, Colleen entered the presence of Jesus. No more pain or sorrow, no more poking and prodding and tests and IV’s. She’s at perfect peace with her Savior.

The doctors believe that her septic infection returned and she didn’t have the energy left to fight this round. Those of us who knew her best know that she was the strongest woman we’ve ever known, and she fought this harder than any of the doctors had ever seen, right to the very last minute.

Thank you so much for your outpouring of love, support and encouragement during this battle. Memorial details will be announced once Sam and family return home to California. Continued donations will be used to cover Colleen’s medical bills, memorial expenses, and support Sam during this time. We love you all.

Also, please consider making a donation to help support the family during this time of crisis. Help the Parsons Family




Mom is still hanging tough. Very slow process but improving slightly. Prayers are working for oxygen levels, please keep them up. Need ALOT prayer for blood flow to her legs and progress to be made on knocking down the infection. That is her big battle right now. Her infection levels went up overnight, so they’re focusing on that. She’s semi-alert and responsive, pray for peace and ease of pain for her.



Numbers are holding tight on mom. No drops today and they’re able to back her supplied oxygen down. She’s also a little more coherent. Believing that we’re seeing that start of a miracle. Just keep praying against the AFIB. We need her heart to stay relaxed because it’s so weak. And we need blood flow to her legs so she doesn’t lose them.



The doctors have all but given up hope. Yet they do not know our God. I believe God spoke to my heart and told me HE was going to heal and return my wife to me. I need some fervent prayer warriors to join with me in prayer now. Please pray for complete healing for my wife. Today is the true day of battle and our God is willing and able, HE knows all things and HE truly cares. I am standing on HIS promise in John 16:23 please read it and pray in Jesus name. I need your help my brothers. And we will see the deliverance of our God. Your brother,  Sam



Yesterday, Nick Parsons offered this update:
She’s hanging tough with Dialysis, and it seems to be working.  She is fighting a bacteria, and they have identified it.They are worried about getting her off pressers because blood flow is being cut off to her extremities.  This could lead to an amputation.  She’s also fighting Sepsis, which could cause further infection.  
As of today, she has dangerously irregular heart beats.  They are going to try paddles or medication to jumpstart her heart.


Just got word that Sam Parson’s wife, Colleen, is on a respirator and in critical condition in a hospital in Waco, TX.  They are not sure what is going on, but there is some sort of mass in her lungs.  Many of you will know Sam because he leads Praise and Worship at our national gatherings, along with his son, Nick, in Tulsa. Please Pray for healing, strength, peace.

  • Sam, Thad and I just read John 16; 23 and we are praying in our Savior’s mighty name. We stand with you.

  • I’m reminded of the man who does not think about how big the storm is but rather how big our God is…
    Blessings dear brother

  • I am lifting up Colleen to you God of all the universe. We ask you to heal her in the name of Jesus!

  • Kelly and I have just prayed for Colleen Parsons. Kelly felt led by the Holy Spirit to read John 11:4 after our prayer. It is beautiful and thought you might pass on to Sam. Although we’ve never met them…please tell them it is an honor to pray.
    Such heartache. Praying for a miracle!!
    John 11:4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.”

  • God is our healer and we pray that Colleen will have a total and miracle healing. All the praise and glory will go to Him. Give Sam and his family peace in the midst of this storm.

  • God truly knows, cares, is willing and able to heal Colleen. We claim complete healing by The Great Physician. We stand on the scripture God gave you John 16:23″In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father give you whatever you ask in My Name.”
    James 5:16a “The effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth much” There are many prayer warriors are praying a similar prayer.

    Praise God

  • Mighty, Sovereign and Merciful Savior, we lift Colleen, Sam, and their entire family up to you and humbly ask for your peace, comfort, grace, strength and healing to manifest in this circumstance dramatically, for your glory!
