Awesome! The Chinese eventually played, and still play, a huge role in the history of modern Hawai’i.
Two great books to get a perspective on the events that transformed Hawai’i both politically and spiritually are: “Hawaii’s History by Hawaii’s Queen”. This is regarding the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom by the United States business men coup and the appeal of the Queen to Congress to eventually right that wrong and restore the Kingdom. The second book is “Titus Coen- Life In Hawai’i”. This book documents the Conversion of the Hawaiian people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Approximately 95% or more of the Hawaiian people were baptized into the Church after showing fruits of their conversion in holiness and repentance. Hawaii had the largest Christian Churches in the world in those days. Great legacy! Inspiring reading for anyone interested in true evangelism.
