McKay’s steamship docked at Honolulu, Hawaii, on February 4, 1921. The tropical beauty of the islands impressed McKay as he ventured throughout the islands. Mormon missionaries had enjoyed proselyting success in the Hawaiian Islands since their arrival in the 1850s. McKay spoke at well-attended conferences across the islands, visited church-owned plantations and schools, and were immersed in the local culture. McKay noted the multicultural composition of the local church membership, enjoyed homemade luaus prepared by local Latter-day Saints, offered guidance to young missionaries, and marveled at geographic landmarks, including volcanoes, coral reefs, and waterfalls. On February 26, 1921, McKay and Cannon boarded a steamer bound for San Francisco, California, where they planned to transfer steamers and travel to French Polynesia.
