He Called After 5 Years In The US (read) by Farmerguy: 7:17pm On Dec 01
2015 was a different year for me, after my grandpa died, he willed his farm to me. When he was very much alive, I took interest in farm work and i had to move to th village to work on his farm and his poultry. So he willed it to me and the other family members didn't give a damn. (most of them were doing good in Lagos). So 2015 I sold alot of farm produce (I'd say since he willed the farm to me, I worked harder than I was working before when he was very much alive).

I saved up most of the money, made sure my wife and kids were okay and I threw about 80 percent of the cash i made in the bank.

September 2015, I was roasting yam (me and the people I employed to work in the farm, we took a break) and my dude from way back was on the other end, we spoke for hours that I couldn't continue with the other guys.. He needed money for plane ticket and other stuff.. Said he would pay me back in folds when he gets to the states and works for a while.

I told him I was gonna get back to him as I needed to discuss things with my wife and Iwas gonna get back to him. God till date I didn't know how I credited him one million.. I just can't explain it till date. He eventually traveled and i wouldn't hear anything from him until last night (he didn't call me at any point and I didn't bulge for 5 years).. He'd call me yesterday and said he's never seen a nigga like me and he'll wire me some funds Monday..

At least he called you and promised to fund your account on Monday...


Mine.... I made sure I swore for him.. He eventually called me seven years later.. saying it seemed he was cursed, nothing was working for him.. He even had to come back to Nigeria.. He actually needed me to pray for him..

Exactly!

His conscience isn't dead and buried, that's why he felt the pain every now and then.

Op, you serve a living God. Don't forget your offerings and bless people...

I have made a vow never to loan people money because everyone I have ever loaned never paid me back. Humans beings are a unique bunch.

You subconsciously lent him money and haven't been bothered by it all these years.

Are you sure you were roasting yam or village people were roasting your senses?
Because it doesn't add up to a cynical me.

Why do I also feel it is your late grandfather's spirit that sent karma to punish you for only being diligent on the farm when he had died?

Either way, you better flee because that brother wants to finish up the good work he started 5years ago.

So what did you gain after you swore for him not to make it. What did you gain as he returned to Nigeria.
Brother if you must help a fellow brother, give him your blessings as he goes, life is not really easy even outside there brother. He may have it in mind to pay back but still trying to settle down, family, debtors, accommodation, jobs, etc. All this these don't balance in a day. May God never send helper like you my way. If the op has sworn for that guy all these years, would he have known that the guy has been struggling and even saving up to pay after 5yrs.

Why do you think that they decided to not repay your loan to them?
Did the same people default on their loans from others?
What do you think it is about you that makes people comfortable with not paying back your money?

I have no idea. I loan them and when it's time to repay they start giving stories.

Do you think that you are too soft on them from the onset, giving signs that you won't take any tough action to recover your money?

You should wait for Monday first before sharing your testimony.
As a farmer you should know that you don't count your chickens until they are hatched.
I hope that everything works out well for you.

People can be really mean but even after a year, I still wouldn't call him because his family members from my church were acting funny but I read their body language and just faced off.

When he didn't return as at when promised... Back then it was money meant for something important.. Then he went on to block all avenues of reaching him.. It was like he disappeared into thin air in the abroad

You can say all you want to say.. What happened has taught me a lesson not to help strangers.. That money was also important to me.. I just lent him thinking he will refund when I was ready to use it... Only for him to call me that he was at the airport and he was sorry..

The truth might have been he was trying to find his feet. Some guys are even homeless when they get there as they did not do their homework well. Many never did any homework. Some are like, "Just let me land for America. Even if no kobo dey my pocket, I go manage". When you sleep rough for months, your eye go clear

Good he called you
