Heard from Al Baca, and then Rebecca Taylor about a small church in Hawaii. Al writes: "There is a small but beautiful church about 1.25 miles South of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. It has a beautiful etched glass window and sits about 10 yards from the ocean's edge." Rebecca stayed in a nearby cottage for her honeymoon, "There are two south of Kona on Alli'i drive - one is made of lava rock and is gorgeous...and more regular-sized. The other is the smaller of the two -- a more traditional church-looking church. It is definitely not the world's smallest, but it ain't that big either AND it's oceanfront!" Perhaps 8 ft. x 14 ft. as a rough guesstimate.
