When we teach people about XYZ religion, we can save them from their sufferings. In fact, their troubles and pain can become triggers to their happiness.

Are both sentences correct?

Thanks.

The first sentence is correct. I would prefer to say "... triggers for their happiness" in the second sentence.

Huum.. Think

I think troubles and pain imply direction, so don't you think "to" is more proper since it implies direction? Think
