Kung pwede lang! Masbate BM Arevalo longs to spend Christmas with family


It’s the start of Yuletide season and Masbate Board Member Jason Arevalo just wants to spend it with his family and loved ones.

“It’s First of December. And despite the pandemic, Christmas seems unstoppable. You can smell it in the air, its usual charm plastered here and there,” said Arevalo

“But for those far from their loved ones, the festive air fails to fill the vacuum,” he added.

“As for me, all I want for Christmas is to be with my kids and loved ones. This time is different. Can’t see them. Won’t be with them,” he also said.

However, the board member said he will just pray for their safety and well-being.

“All I can hope for is for this pandemic to be over. All I can wish for is to be with the people closest to my heart,” he said.

“Christmas is around the corner but not quite. I’m here. They’re far. If there be any consolation, faith and prayers bind us, and Lord Jesus bridges us all,” added Arevalo.

In the end he said: “In His beautiful and perfect time, I pray everything will be a triumph of hope over experience. For me, for all the families.”
