About The Jollys' Journey

We are Dave and Beth Jolly, media trainers and consultants with Reach Beyond, assisting ministry partners in the Europe/ Eurasia region. Our blog is a more intimate look into our journey through life as we share with you the good, the bad, and the ugly of serving in a post communist region of the world. Through consulting and media training, our passion is to help nationals develop creative ways to positively influence their local communities. Our friends describe us as insightful, purposeful and loving, but we just think of ourselves as being given unique gifts and experiences which allow us to develop relationships through training and mentoring. We have a lot of fun along our journey too! Subscribe to our blog to receive weekly updates, along with pictures, stores and even an occasional recipe!
