Savior Redeemer of My Soul

There is no doubt that this is still my favorite song. The first time I heard this is in Korea days and it really caught my attention when I heard this during a Zone Conference. I t really touched me and felt the Savior's love. After 4 years, every time I listen to this beautiful song, memories flashes back and understanding more to the atonement of Jesus Christ. It even makes me emotional. Savior Redeemer of my soul, whose mighty hands hath made me whole. Whose wondrous pow'r hath raise me up and filled me sweet my bitter cup.

It's been forever!

First off, I truly apologize for not updating this blog forever! So to start off, I will graduate next year March. Yes! I am taking a bachelor degree in Information technology in a small college in our town. I just can't wait for my graduation but of course there are lot of things that I need to do, but because of my mission, I learned how to manage things and organize everything.

I really miss Korea and every single person I met especially the Korean members and of course my mission companions. They are the reason why my mission was successful. I know this is kinda weird but I have some dreams at night about my mission. I remember at one night, I had a dreamed that I was visiting a Zone Conference in Seoul and President Lee was there. In my dream, he saw me and gave me a hug. My eyes were like waterfall because of the emotion then I realized that it was only a dream. I can't wait to see the people I have met. I heard that most of my companions are now married and I am 100% sure that I can find that right girl for me :D. President and Sister Christensen got home almost a year and it was weird. I felt that I just met them yesterday. President Lee and Sister Han are now serving as the Seoul temple President and matron.

There are lot of things changed here. Robin left last year for BYU Hawaii. My two sisters left last month to Dubai. I feel that I'm alone but I know that the Lord will help me in this lonely times. I am still happy though that I have my parents with me. I am currently serving as a clerk in our ward for almost 3 years and still loving my calling. I am hoping that I will meet that right girl for me someday which I actually know her.

Gotta go to school now!

사개월후...The final thoughts

I realized that it's been 4 months since I came home. I still think of my mission and Korea especially the people that I met and loved. It's been really amazing to serve mission. Every time before I retire to bed, my mind always flashes back the last 2 years of my life. My mission in Korea is unforgettable and it's my pearl of great price. My heart and my mind is still in service. My mission has a great impact now in my life. The way I think, the goals that I planned are all inspired from those 2 years.

I wish I can go back there as a missionary but of course, you can't force the time to come back. I remember my last interview to my Mission President. He said that being a missionary is always crossing on the the hole of a needle but fun. I know that one happened to me. I learned so much from it. I think the best thing that I learned is love one another and charity. When I was on the plane, my emotions were mix. Half of my mind was still in Korea. It was tough. I honestly sobbed.

I want to share the scripture that really sticked in my mind and my heart. It's from the book of 2nd Nephi chapter 4. In this chapter, Lehi blesses his posterity and dies. Nephi shared about trusting the Lord. It says:

 20 My God hath been my support; he hath led me through mine afflictions in the wilderness; and he hath preserved me upon the waters of the great deep.

 21 He hath filled me with his love, even unto the consuming of my flesh.

23 Behold, he hath heard my cry by day, and he hath given me aknowledge by bvisions in the night-time.

 24 And by day have I waxed bold in mighty prayer before him; yea, my voice have I sent up on high; and angels came down and ministered unto me.

 25 And upon the wings of his Spirit hath my body been carried away upon exceedingly high mountains. And mine eyes have beheld great things, yea, even too great for man; therefore I was bidden that I should not write them.

29 Do not anger again because of mine enemies. Do not slacken my strength because of mine afflictions.

 30 Rejoice, O my heart, and cry unto the Lord, and say: O Lord, I will praise thee forever; yea, my soul will rejoice in thee, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

I had a hard time in learning everything, the language, culture, everything but Heavenly Father didn't leave me in those sad days of my mission. I know that He lives! I know now why God sent me to Korea. I can't even write it because it keeps hiding in my heart. I realized why He sent me there to preach the gospel. It is a wonderful blessing for me and I'm grateful for that opportunity to be the part of His plan. To invite the Korean people to come unto Christ. To help them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. My time in Korea got ended. I will miss it. 사랑하고 고맙습니다. 안녕히 계세요.

Final moments from mission T.T


Elder Bacarro is signing off T.T

Thursday, October 18, 2012


Wow! It's been a month since I came home from my mission. My first week after 2 years was the most boring ever. My mind is still in Korea and missionary work, finding my companion, the language, culture. I got released on the 16th of September so I had a chance to give my homecoming talk still as a missionary. It was weird!

I love my mission. It's the best 2 years of my life. Korea Seoul Mission is the best!
