Event Description
Review Date : July 8, 2013
Embassy Review : Husband interview was on 6/5 @ 10:00am. He arrived for his interview 3 hours ahead of time. He was processed through at 8:00am. He said they collected everything he had and he was moved onto the next stage. He told me that he arrived in the interview section of the place and sat there watching as many of the men where being "Denied" by the same lady that had denied him a year earlier and he said he begin to pray and ask GOD to please do not let him get that hateful lady again because she just acted like to him she had a grudge against men. He said he sat there as folks that was after him was being called ahead of him and he begin to get angry but then he said he heard in his spirit "patiently wait my child". He said he thought to himself why is GOD saying that to him when he was only angry because it seem like to him they were overlooking him. He said finally after 4 hours the man called him to the window. Ask him was his name Mr.**** ***** **** and he said he replied yes sir. Then he said the man asked for his birth certificate and he pulled it out, then the man took it and looked at it and said "APPROVED".

We give all the praise & glory to GOD almighty for this long journey we have endured, but we both can say it was worth it. I basically was kind of upset because I had front-loaded him both times (1st & 2nd Interview) and they still never asked for a single piece of evidence, but it's all about GOD's timing and plans for our lives and not ours.

I encourage others who are and still is going through this just to pray, keep the faith and trust GOD!!!!! Keep your eyes on GOD at all times and watch HIM work things out for you.

*Notice about estimates: The estimates are based off averages of other members recent experiences
(documented in their timelines) for the same benefit/petition/application at the same filing location.
Individual results may vary as every case is not always 'average'. Past performance does not necessarily
predict future results. The 'as early as date' may change over time based on current reported processing
times from members. There have historically been cases where a benefit/petition/application processing
briefly slows down or stops and this can not be predicted. Use these dates as reference only and do not
rely on them for planning. As always you should check the USCIS processing times to see if your application
is past due.
