My MoMo account is empty

Dear Obaa Yaa,

I always wish a happy new year to a couple of friends. This has become a tradition not because of the gains I get from them but rather these friends are very supportive and I always want to appreciate their gestures.

Interestingly, any time I call or send those wishes, they will ask whether my telephone number was still registered with Mobile Money (MoMo), which I always respond in the affirmative with smiles. Then after some few minutes, my message tones will beep with a MoMo alert.

I sent messages last year but the response was “Many Happy Returns.”

I am confused because up till now, they are yet to ask whether my contact is regis­tered ‘MoMo-wise.’

I feel like asking why they have failed to perform that yearly ritual because some­thing tells me all is not well with them. May be through that I will know whether they are facing financial challeng­es where I can be of help to them.

Should I proceed with my plan?

Dear Quarmyne,

There could be various reasons for their inability to send you money this year. They could be facing some economic challenges or other unforeseen circumstances.

It is also possible that they have forgotten.

I would advise you to stop relying on your friends and having high expectations of them. Instead, place your trust in God. As the Bible says, “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength, and whose heart turns away from the Lord.”

Also, I would urge you to find something to do to support yourself financially in order to avoid feeling so dis­appointed in case they do not deliver as they did this year.
