How An Immigrant Can Prosper – Charles Awuzie

(Inspired by a pro-immigration bible verse).

If you don’t live in your Village, you should read this.
If you live in a city away from your place of birth, this post is for you.
With the utmost respect to your personal religious beliefs, please permit me to glean wisdom from a particular verse in the Christian Bible and I quote:

“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city where you have gone into exile. Wish well for your host country, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
Jeremiah 29:4‭-‬7

Every immigrant should take home 4 lessons from the above text:

1. Settle Down In Your Host Country:

When you are an immigrant in a new land, don’t say “I’m here to make money and run back to my country.” No. Calm down and SETTLE DOWN. Some of you are not yet settled in your host countries that’s why you would rather build in Nigeria where you no longer live than to buy a home in the country of your residence. Invest where you live. Buy a home where you live before you think of building in your Village/country. Please Settle Down.

2. Marry:

If you are in a new land, stop looking for a husband or wife from the people you left behind in your home land. Marry from your new land and make a family. You will grow from there. It is another form of Xenophobia, Tribalism and racism to insist on marrying only from your tribe or race. Settle down in your new land and marry. Get used to dating from another tribe, race or culture.

3. Increase, Do not Decrease…
This is an instruction, not an advice. Be intentional about Increase and stay away from people or things that cause decrease in your life – including crime, waste of resources, paying for s£x and excessive consumption of alcohol.
If you ask those very close to me, they will tell you that I am increase-conscious. I stay away from anything that could bring loss of life, property or reputation. I am here to increase, grow and become. Have the same mindset. Increase, do not decrease.

4. Seek the Peace and Prosperity of the Country You migrated to.
I pay big tax in South Africa. I love South Africa and South Africans. I pray for the peace of the nation. I project a good image of the country. I block people who disrespect this nation or her people. I serve the community. I send 10% of my income to the poor in the community. I house the poor free of charge and pray for their prosperity. I do these because I know that the prosperity of South Africa’s economy will translate to the prosperity of everyone who lives in it including me.

Instead of using Social media to destroy the image of your host country, use it to position your host country for foreign direct investments and you will definitely prosper as the nation prospers.

This is the principle that guarantees prosperity of an immigrant the righteous way in a foreign land.

This is also why I disagreed with some secessionists who call Nigeria zoo, animals, dark nation, etc. I told them to make their case of self determination without using propaganda and abusive words against Nigeria because such will come back to them – IT IS A PRINCIPLE OF LIFE. If you call Nigeria a Zoo, you will live like an animal. After calling Nigeria Zoo, we started hearing “Crocodile military Dance, python dance”. What you sow in your nation is what you will reap as a person. If you call South Africa etc derogatory names, that’s also what you will experience. That’s why the Americans will always BLESS AMERICA and they see the blessings too.

I hope this article helps one immigrant struggling out there.

My name is Charles Awuzie and I care about people who left home to feed home. May your dreams come through
