1930 Stella and Arthur Rice moved their family to Hackensack, NJ to continue the plans that God had for them. Here my grandparents became homeowners in the north with their 7 children. This part of the Brewton/ Rice family we are still residing in Hackensack, Nj and various communities in New Jersey.

Here I am!

Thanking God for the protective shield and guidance that He had with my ancestors. Their strong faith in God that had kept them strong and together.
When I look back to where we came from, the in humane treatments that we had to endur as people . Let my people go! We have over come. No longer looking back, but marching on with the plans that God has for us.

They knew that they had a friend in Jesus. They knew blessed assurance Jesus is mine. They knew when we all get to Heaven what a day of rejoicing it will be. When we All see Jesus we will sing and shout for VICTORY!
