A small family gathering marked a very special moment in the life of a young and maturing woman at Tulaele on Friday night.
Laufaleaina Shorley Kiki Eli, the eldest daughter of Olive and Lina Eli, celebrated her 21st birthday with families and close friends at the confines of her family home.
Her spiritual father, Reverend Fa’apia Tariu of the E.F.K.S Church who has seen Laufa grow by leaps and bounds conducted a prayer service where he blessed the birthday girl.
He congratulated and cautioned her to be wise in her decision making and never to forget God in everything she does.
Laufaleaina Kiki is a former student of St. Mary’s Primary, College, N.U.S and she is an employee of Digicel.
She hails from Apia, Tulaele, Lalomanu and Tufutafoe.
