Tanya Persons

   Tanya was raised in a Christian home and lived several years on the mission field with her parents. She felt personally called by God to the nations from the age of 12. She worked various office jobs as well as volunteering in many different areas in her local church in Anchorage, Alaska, before she and her husband Jim were directed by God to move to Budapest, Hungary, as missionaries in January 2003. She was introduced to Ellel Ministries in June of 2003 and God has clearly called both her and Jim to become progressively more involved in the ministry. She currently is the Deputy Director of Ellel Ministries Central & Eastern Europe Development Centre, where, with her husband Jim, she travels to the countries of the former Soviet Union and satellite nations teaching and ministering God's healing. She has a desire to see people walking into the fullness of God's purposes for their lives. She has a real gifting for teaching and administration and when not working enjoys playing the flute, reading, and spending time on the computer. She also has four adult children and one grandson, with a second grandchild on the way.
