Ramona B. Jolly has an earned Ph.D. in Christian
Education and Administration. In 1993-1994 she and her family lived in Kenya, East
Africa as missionaries. It was in Africa that the purposes of God burst forth
in her in bigger than life experiences. During this time a passion to serve
Christ and flow in the purposes He foreordained was birthed. That passion
remains to this day.
In 1999 Ramona and her husband established YAHshua
International, Inc., a 501(c) (3), to facilitate the ministries He has called
them to. During a time of great trial when her husband was battling for his
life with two kinds of leukemia raging in his body, she learned that Father-God
could be trusted with life so precious. This was the beginning of a deep, true
relationship with Him. Ramona and Billy have 3 children and two grandchildren.
