|I GOT MY FIRST PACKAGE!!!|
I asked for toys for the little ones and oh boy did he deliver! My American Dad said he went crazy at the store and was "so damn excited" to send it to me. I was JUST as excited, if not MORE EXCITED to get it!

I gave my little sister a doll, which I do not think she has ever had before and was confused what to do with at first. I gave my brother Frisbee. He knows I can not speak Samoan very well so he said, "Mati (points to the Frisbee) Alofa! Fa'fati!" then gives me a huge hug!! It was so cute and rewarding. (Alofa means love, Fa'fati means thank you). My Samoan Father wanted me to pass the message along to my American Dad, "Thank you John Rhodes for the gifts to my family. Your daughter is safe by me, my village and God will look after her here in Samoa." Just passing along the message dad!
