Retired army veteran Jason Martin traveled from Nashville, Tenn., to Honduras as part of a missionary team. What started as a trip to complete construction on a house for missionaries, doctors and advisors soon turned into something even more meaningful. “I decided as part of that, I wanted to share The Way to Happiness with the locals who live in very poverty-stricken circumstances.”
Martin distributed sixty copies of The Way to Happiness booklet to those who could read, then took things a step further by setting up a small group for those who could not read to have the precepts read to them by others. The group would then discuss the precepts with one another so all would achieve full understanding of what was contained therein.
The Way to Happiness was written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard in the early 1980s, and since then has sparked a global movement. It has been passed hand to hand to a wide variety of cultures and peoples.
According to thewaytohappiness.org, “This code of conduct can be followed by anyone, of any race, color or creed and works to restore the bonds that unite humankind.” In the three decades since it was authored, 100 million copies of the booklet have been passed hand to hand.
