On Day 5, Dr. J got on the Molokai Ferry for a two hour ride to the island of Molokai. Molokai is said to be the most Hawaiian island, what Maui was 50 years ago. There are 8900 people, no traffic lights, lots of open land and forest, mostly agriculture like coffee and vegetables, and 21 registered churches, with the largest denomination Morman. Our guide, Rudy, is part Filopino and Catholicism and St. Damien are well regarded on the island, but the Mormons visited the islanders in their homes when they arrived, and that is the key reason for their denominational dominance.
