Australia-based Ipolito Sola Nepa celebrated his 21st birthday with his parents and friends at the St. Therese Retreat Centre Tofamamao yesterday.
Ipolito is the son of Sola Ati and Iva Nepa.
“Today’s celebration was all his idea even though he is residing in Australia he wanted to come back to celebrate his 21st birthday here with us,” his proud father said.
“My challenge for him from when he was young is “Listen and Obey”
“I always tell him that the Bible said a child who respects and listens to his parents is the one that God will bless.
“That goes for all of my children and today we have invited all his friends and relatives to come celebrate this special day of his with us.
Ipolito attended St. Joseph’s Primary School at Leauvaa before he moved to New Zealand.
From there, he moved to Australia where he is working now.
Ipolito’s elder sister Saili Sola Ati said she is very happy to be here to witness her brother’s special day.
