Lesson today:
  •  Kanoa Kanahele taught the lesson today, sharing with us his very interesting family history (his ancestors include Sir Isaac Newton and a 4th great grandfather from Molokai who was shown great respect by Kamehameha 1, the unifier of the Hawaiian islands).  He also read to us the story of the first ancestor from his family to join the Church.  We all were encouraged to do family history work, which includes recording our own personal history via journal writing
