TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

When Mormon missionaries arrived in Hawaii in the 1850s one of their first converts was Pua's grandfather, John Kahumoku. Besides being one of the first Hawaiian Mormon missionaries he also assisted in the translation of the Book of Mormon. In this fascinating episode, Pua weaves in Hawaiian history while sharing what it was like growing up in a devout LDS family with ties to the royal line. She also talks about how God began leading her out of Mormonism to a relationship with Jesus.  

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The Hawaiian people are drawn to Mormonism because families are told they can be together forever. There is also an ancient Hawaiian prophecy that people would come on clouds and tell them about God. So when the Mormon men came, it was accepted as a fulfillment of prophecy. ~Pua
