Inhaltsangabe: In 1850, the Hawaiian nation was opened for missionary work, and among the first elders called to labor there was a young man named George Q. Cannon. He had been working in the California gold fields but accepted the call to serve in the island nation. Elder Cannon served as a missionary in Hawaii for four year--from 1850 through 1854--and found himself in the center of one of the most successful LDS missions of the nineteenth century. More than 4,000 people were baptized. However, the success of the mission almost didn't happen. During the early days, the Hawaiian mission seemed to regularly alternate between ill-fated and inspired. The Journals of George Q. Cannon: Hawaiian Mission, 1850-1854 contains Elder Cannon's insights and experiences during this unique time in Church history. And through his words, we can see Cannon beginning to develop the traits that would later characterize him as a great Church leader. This journal is among the finest examples of a missionary journal in the Church. It provides new information and insights into the Hawaiian mission and serves as a testament of what faith can accomplish--an attribute Elder Cannon learned in part from the Hawaiians.
Über den Autor: Adrian W. Cannon, grandson of George Q. Cannon, was an historian, author, and journalist. Richard E. Turley Jr. is Assistant Church Historian and Recorder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Chad M. Orton is an archivist in the Church Historical Department.
