MYRA WILKINSON – Founding Director and Patron
Myra Wilkinson will always be synonymous with Elijah House Ministries Australia. After attending an Elijah House school of ministry in Idaho USA in 1989, Myra, with her husband Clif’s cooperation established the first of the international Elijah House Ministries here in Australia. Myra and Clif agreed to be Patrons of Elijah House Ministries Australia and although Myra retired from the Board in 2002, both maintained an active interest. Myra went to be with her Lord and Saviour on the last day of 2010 and Clif joined her and his Lord Jesus on 2 March 2015. We thank the Lord for Myra’s forward looking, Holy Spirit inspired initiative which continues to bless many.
