Foreigner After 20 years in America?

You always hear some foreigners say they will be going back because this is not their place. I am still waiting for most of them to go back to no avail. All of a sudden they hear that Obama is now president they claim it is African victory. If he had been evading taxes, trying to steal people’s social security and others then by now he will be in the doghouse rather than the White House.
Foreigners always say they want to go back home. When you look at it, some of them have lived out for more than 30 years. Let me ask you this: what are you going to do back in Africa at 65? An advice to a friend: don’t go; you will die before your time because you no va born; na soso ndutu for kondre. Look; you have nothing at home and here you live in a borrowed mansion and drive borrowed cars. For kondre na money for hand, back for grong. How do you want to go back like a church rat?
Those who live on credit card fraud are now on the run. The ones who buy cars, pretend they are stolen and ship them with fraudulent particulars only to turn back and claim insurance will soon be caught. That is how some are building mansions but you do not see where they work or what they do.
Do you know why many young foreigners are flocking now into nursing home jobs? They want to go and steal the social security of old Americans. There are many Americans whose relatives have abandoned them. So those people in Nursing Homes taking care of them, file them in their taxes as people they take care for and others steal from their bank cards outrightly.
It baffles me that foreigners come from places they did not have opportunities and when they come, they refuse to better their lives. Did you realize that most foreigners file taxes with different children every year? How does a parent rotate children? If you refuse to pay taxes in a place like Africa one would understand that the tax money is not being used judiciously but here in America, there will be just no excuse for you to evade taxes. I know many of you tell me that Americans do it. Most of them have never lived out so they take their country for granted but you have lived out and can compare two places.
The sorry part of it all are the Christians. Why are you sponsoring a ministry in Cameroon when you cannot sponsor a ministry here where you live? Are there no poor people here? Are the poor people here not worth your evangelism? The prophets were preaching even in captivity. Preach in season and out of season. Take note of the synagogues and the temples. In the absence of the temples they used synagogues. If the lion cannot find meat it should eat grass. Don’t cite me Ps 137:4: “How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land”. No one brought you here on captivity; you came here on your own and so you have the choice to integrate or run back home. Settle down, buy a farm and start to farm. This is your home. This is where your wife and children live. Yes, they live here!
One day a friend asked me to make a contribution. I told him that I have made up my mind to help some Americans. He asked me: “why do you spend money on those people”. Listen to that: on those people. As if those are not God’s creatures. It is a mistake for anyone to think their culture is superior to others. Then he continues: “This is their country; if they don’t take care of their own people why should you”. I felt sorry a Christian should be talking like the non Christians.
Sometimes you see a brother in a church where he has been there for five years. Then he tells you one day that he is going home to marry because you know these girls do not stay in a marriage. So you may be going to the wrong church then. If you go to a church and cannot trust the people fully then you are in the wrong place; get another place. But if you call it your church and call them brothers and sisters then you should be ready to marry their men or their women.
We must escape from this escapism or this existentialist behavior. We cannot keep being strangers in America for more than 20 years. If you do not have anything at home that you can fall back on then you should quit from saying you are going back home. Listen again; this is a friendly advice; if you dare it, you will die before your time.
Until then, “do not envy those who build mansions for they may never live in them.
