About Daniel Parkes

Daniel Parkes has worked in fields of technology for many years and currently writes software that is used to publish websites. He graduated from McGill University in 1985 and began working in fields of technology (microwave telecommunication design) soon afterwards. In 1987, he left engineering to study theology, but became very sick. The Lord led him on a journey to discover what was making him sick, and through this has learned many valuable lessons which relate to why people may get sick. The Lord did heal him (fully). He returned to engineering in 1993 and has been working as an engineer ever since. He has authored many articles through FCET (Fellowship of Christian Engineers and Technologists) at www.fcet.org, which is mostly an online outreach which he started in 1998. There are currently more than 1000 articles on this website, written by more than 100 authors. If you are interested in making your personal testimony known through FCET, please use the contact form on that website.
