3 is the number of the Godhead, or the trinity. 8 is the biblical number for new beginnings. e.g., the eighth day is the first day of a new week; there where 8 people on the ark when God decided to start over with the human race. We are commanded in the new testament to be baptized in the name of the trinity - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Perhaps this number is some sort of indication that you should seek a new beginning in your life by becoming a Christian and being baptized into the faith in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
