Goldonna Village News February 22

On Sunday, February 12th, the Goldonna Assembly of God Church had an exceptional church service that was well attended by the community and other churches. Mr. Jacob Phillips, also known as “the man without a brain,” was the guest speaker for the service. He was born over four decades ago without a brain. He lives in West Monroe, Louisiana and travels near and far to share his story of how God healed him.

Pastors Timmy and Pam Harris were elated with the message that Mr. Phillips shared with the congregation.

“The service was amazing! Jacob’s testimony of being born with no brain, no hope of any life at all..especially a life of normalcy to the life he lives now. He is able to travel, preach and be used by God to share his testimony, the goodness of God and the message of Jesus Christ,” shared Rev. Timmy Harris.

Goldonna Assembly of God will be participating in a Community Service at Dodson Assembly of God on March 3rd. Pastor Harris extends the invitation to everyone.
