Valentines Day might be two days away but that didn’t matter on Friday night when single young adults of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints got together to celebrate love.

The Moto’otua-based church hosted glamorous and glittering event where many young members of nine wards from Apia mixed and mingled.

Stake Rep. Lincoln Iosefa said the night was for the young single adults to appreciate the true meaning of Valentines.

“This is an annual programme. We always have this event every year because we as young adults want to gather together and have some fun,” he told the Sunday Samoan.

“This is all about us to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves to enter the holy temple through marriage.”

The group is made up of 18 year olds to 28 year olds.

They come from the different wards including Vaoala, Vailima, Motootua I, Motootua II, Alamagoto, Moamoa, Pesega II and Alafua.

“Every Valentine we hope for someone to propose to their partners,” he said.

“At the moment nobody knows who will propose tonight but I wish it was me.

Unfortunately plans have changed for me this year but hopefully next year I will be the one that will propose during our Valentine programme.”

Asked what he thinks Valentine’s day is, he said: “My own personal definition about Valentine’s Day is that it’s all about friendship.”

“The true meaning of Valentine is about love. Loving the person whom you know will make you happy for the rest of your life.”

“So tonight there will be dances, games and all sorts but most especially we will have some valentine games so that they can have a picture of what this day is all about.”
