Power supply in Nigeria- What we really go through

Hi Everyone,

It’s me again Prince Austin. I am the fiancé to my super adorable woman, Princess Michelle. I’m here to talk about one major issue we are still suffering from until date in Nigeria, this issue is Power supply. I go through a lot to keep my phone on and not to lose contact with my woman because due to this long distance I want to be there for her at all times, especially because of her health issues, so I don’t want this issue with electricity here to get in the way. I wake up every morning, brush my teeth, and take my bath (with cold water every day, I might add), and then set out into the outrageously hot temperature, due to the hot sun, to the store or to my friend’s place (Williams), so I can get my phone charged and not get disconnected from my woman.

We both need each other and there is no way in hell I am going to allow Nigeria’s crazy issues with power get in the way of communication with my woman. That is why I go through this stress just to keep my phone charged. I know Michelle doesn’t like me stressing over the charging, but I can’t help it, because I feel completely useless if I can’t be there for my woman, via video call, or even voice calls, because somehow my voice takes her pains away, which makes me feel even more special. I just wish that someday, this issue of electricity will be solved and we can one day enjoy what we have, because a lot of businesses have closed down due a large amount of high bills for fuel and diesel, since they can’t depend on power supply either (to which it never comes). I’ll go through anything just to not lose connection with my woman, because she means the world to me and I don’t want her to ever feel alone on this journey, because it’s hard enough that we are so far way from each other.
I love you to the moon and back Michelle!

Thank you all for reading.

I am American and my fiancé is Nigerian (African) from the Igbo Tribe. We were aquaintances in a Christian Facebook group where we followed each other's postings regularly. On April 30, 2016 Austin sent me an official Facebook friend request. For 3 days, I checked his Facebook profile thoroughly (always very important no matter the connection to be established) and I prayed to the Lord for guidance, as I was married to another Nigerian from the Yoruba tribe, but we had been separated for almost a year, since his arrival in the US (never saw that one coming in a million years - story to be added later). I felt the Lord leading me strongly to accept Austin's friend request; therefore, on March 3, 2016 I accepted his friend request; and the rest, as they say, is history. This was the beginning of Our True Love Story and we have been planning our White Wedding for celebration on February 14, 2020 to be held at the Newman's Castle and Newman's Bakery in Bellville, Texas. This has been a long journey for us and we decided to share our story in an effort help other's in relationships similar to our story, to assist them in learning how to navigate the Immigration Process, learning how to keep their relationship alive, and how to communicate and compromise to make it through this long journey, stronger than when they began. We also want to assist with resources whether you plan to file for a spousal visa or a fiancé visa. Making these types of relationships work and last is a journey, in and of itself, not to mention the journey of a lifetime and will certainly be an incredible story to share with friends, family, and especially their children, whether you are a blended family or are planning your future with children. I am a Social Worker by degree with a Bachelor's of Science in Social Work, I love children and I am a true cat lover, owner, and fan; however, I love all animals. I am a devout and faithful Christian with a strong faithful heart, but I am also human. Currently I am on permanent disability and dealing with multiple health issues, but have faith that God will heal me. I own several wonderful cats and I am looking forward to welcoming my wonderful fiancé to the US for the first time and to getting married to my soulmate and love of my life, Austin, within 90 days of his arrival and celebrating our official White Wedding with our family and friends.
