31 Jan Seasoned Saint – Sister Jacqueline Farms
Fellowship Bible Baptist Church’s Seasoned Saint for February 2021 is Sister Jacqueline Farms
Sister Jacqueline Farms was born on 19 October 1965 in Belle Glade Florida and is married to Felton Farms. She describes her family as the “J” Family with two children: Joey and Jasmine plus two granddaughters: Jada and Jocelyn. Looks like some advanced planning took place. I will share her responses to some of interview questions.
