  • In 1850, missionaries were first called and sent to the Hawaiian Islands. 








    • The Laie Hawaii Temple (then called the Hawaii Temple) was first dedicated on Thanksgiving Day in 1919 by President Heber J. Grant.




    • The Book of Mormon was translated into Hawaiian by George Q. Cannon and Hawaiian convert Jonathon Napela in 1855.  It was the 7th language translation of The Book of Mormon. 




    • While on a mission to Hawaii in the 1860’s, William W. Cluff received a vision where Brigham Young appeared to him and said: “This is the place, and upon this land we will build a temple unto our God.”




    • In 1865, the Church purchased a 6,000 acre sugarcane plantation which became a gathering place for the Hawaiian saints.




    • Joseph F. Smith visited Hawaii on Church business in 1915 and felt inspired to dedicate this land to the building of a temple in Hawaii.  As a 3-time missionary to Hawaii (his first when he was just 15 years old), he had a deep love for the islands and the Hawiian saints loved him right back.
