||God is with me all the time
My fiancé is 58 years old and I am 34 years old, it doesnt matter the age differences I LOVE MY MAN, I was alone at the interview and I was approved, here is the story:
I went to Santo Domingo from Santiago on Monday 17, I stayed at Jardines del Teatro Hotel.
I arrived at 7: 00 pm, when I was at the office hotel I met @firegirl1788.
It was a pleasure met her, also I met her baby and her mother.
I talked with my friend @firegirl1788 until 11 pm, she helped me a lot, explain me the interview process. I went to bed but I couldn’t sleep, I only slept 2 hours.
I wasn’t nervous but I couldn’t sleep. I woke up 2:00 am and I couldn’t come back to sleep so I get up and started to prayed to GOD. I was praying until 4: 00 am, then I started to get to order everything, I took a shower and got ready to go.
At 5: 00 am I called my fiancé, he was very nervous but I said him: don’t worry GOD IS WITH US.
At 5: 42 I went to the consulate and at 5:45 I was there, the hotel is very close from to the consulate.
When I arrived there were 154 people. ( I know that because my number was 155 ).
In the line for resident visas and fiancé visa everybody was with their spouse, husband or fiancé there, I guess that I was the only one without the fiancé, but I said to myself: I have the best company next to me: GOD.
At 7: 00 am I was in the building. Into the building I sat down and I started to read the Bible,
I red the psalm specifically, psalm 40, 41, 103, 35 and others.
I was waiting long time until I saw my number in the screen , 155 to window 21.
I stand up and said: GOD you are with me in this.
I went to the window and a Dominican lady took my forms, passport , ds-160, ds-156k, my photo and popular receipt.
She asked me: WHERE IS YOUR FIANCE? I said hi isn’t here.
She asked me: do you have children with him? I said no.
I said to myself : it doesn’t matter what she thinks about that my fiancé isn’t here, the important is GOD s opinion.
I went to pay to window 14 and then went to window 16 to give the receipt there.
When I passed the receipt I saw the packet that my fiancé sent to USCIS with a green card over , when I saw that I said I am approved, the green paper mean that you are approved.
I said thanks GOD, I knew that I need wait until the interview with the consul.
While I was at window 16 I saw to @W&R A VJ member, it was very nice met another VJ member, we wish each other good luck.
After that I sat down again and waited for the fingerprint.
Number 155 to window 15 for fingerprint. Sat down and wait for the interview.
Number 155 to window 23 for interview, I went trusting that I was approved.
At the window was a young lady and very friendly , I saw that she had my packet with the green car on top.
She put me to sing the ds-156, and then here is the conversation:
Consul: why isn’t your fiancé here?
Me: because he was sick on January from 7 to 15 and he was off from job.
And also on February by the snow storm he couldn’t go to work so now he cant get time off from job, if he doesn’t go to work he loses his job.
And if he loses his job: how is he going to support me when I live there? I asked to her.
Consul: I understand.
Me: my fiancé sent a letter, do you want read it?
She red my fiancé letter and gave me back the letter.
Consul: how did you met?
Me: in at resort at Punta Cana.
Consul: did you work there?
Me: no I was there in vacation.
Consul: after the first time that you met, did he come back to visit you?
Me: yes on September 26 to October 8, I have picture here, do you want to see?
She saw the pictures and gave me the pictures back.
Consul: does he have children?
Me: yes one girl, she is adult now, she was born when he was 19 years old.
Consul: do you meet her?
Consul: where does he work?
Me: in Amazon warehouse
Consul: what is his occupation there?
Me: he is warehouse associate
Consul: does he have family here at DR?
Consul: ok, sit down and I will call you in 10 minutes.
I thought that another consul was going to interview me again because I was alone.
I wasn’t nervous anyway I was sure of my approve.
I sat down and they called me again, I went to the window 23 again, for my surprise there was the lady that made my interview before.
Consul: have you been arrested?
Me: no never
Consul: have you been in another country?
Then she said the magic words: congratulations your visa is approved. Go to pay domex.
My breath stopped and the tears come out in my ayes.
I said give me one moment I cant walk,
She said take your time.
I went to pay domex saying thanks GOD , ALL THE TIME.
When I was out the building I raised my hand thanks giving to God, and then I put my hand on my heart and a man thought that I was getting a heart attack.
The man came to me and asked me: are you sick? Is your heart wrong?
I said no , I am so happy because at the consulate approved my visa without my fiancé present.
He said that was a miracle they don’t do that, my brother s wife couldn’t come and they gave an open appointment to my brother until his wife could come to the interview.
I said yes I know God make a miracle with me and my fiancé.
All the time GOD managed this process.
