- Senator Bong Revilla and Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado held a get-together with their media friends to catch up on his recent plans and projects.
- He also addressed the issues he faced, saying that God made those challenges for him to grow stronger and learn who his real friends are.
- The senator shared his upcoming projects in the entertainment industry.
Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and his wife, Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado, faced the media last January 30 in a lunch event at Annabel’s at Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
The get-together was originally scheduled on January 13 but was postponed due to the eruption of the Taal Volcano.
Bong admitted that one positive thing that his struggles gave him is the chance to really know who his friends are. He said that they have never stopped supporting and believing in him. This is pertaining to his acquittal that happened in December 2018.
He added that the Lord has a purpose in every struggle that he puts in one’s way and it is to make them stronger.
“May purpose talaga ang Diyos kung bakit binibigyan tayo ng mga trials and challenges sa buhay natin para lalo tayong tumatag at patuloy na manampalataya at tumawag sa Kanya,” he said.
On a lighter note, though he and Leni already have four grandchildren, they still want more. The senator joked about telling his son, Jolo Revilla and wife Angelica Alita to hurry up.
“Minamadali ko nga sina Jolo at Angelica na bigyan na kami ni Lani ng apo.”
Jolo and Angelica got married last December 2019 in Newport Beach, California.
The Senator also expressed that he missed making movies which is why he decided to join the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival.
He will also be starring in the drama-fantasy anthology ‘Agimat ng Agila’ which ill be aired on GMA Network.
