African slaves worked the sugar plantations established on the island until 1834 when slavery was abolished.

    Greetings, We are here on vacation in Barbados and wondering about Aglow here
    on the island. We are connected to Aglow in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and wondered
    if we might be able to find some other Aglow leaders that we could join for worship tomorrow morning. We are staying at the Coconut Court in Hastings and I have left my husbands email for your response. We leave on Monday afternoon. If you have any suggestions for us that would be most welcome. Thank you so much.
    Love and blessings,
    Lana Charban
