My niece is nothing but a thief


August 18, 2018

Dear Pastor,

I am having a problem, and I want to share it with you. I have a sister who is living in America. My niece went to spend a few weeks with her, and my sister gave her a suitcase with lots of dresses, shoes, and other things for me. She also gave her an envelope with some money. When my niece returned to Jamaica, she didn't contact me.

My sister called and asked me whether I liked the things that she had sent. I told her that I had not yet seen my niece, and she was surprised. I called my niece and asked her about the things that my sister had sent, and she said that she would bring them soon.

When she brought them, I called my sister and told her what she had brought, and my sister said that she sent other things. My niece also took money from the envelope because she did not give me the full amount my sister sent. My sister asked her about it, and my niece called me a liar. You would not want to hear the words she used to me. This is a girl I helped to send to school. She is nothing but a thief. She can keep everything.


Dear V.E.,

Let your niece keep the things that your sister sent for you. She wants every item your sister sent. Allow her to have them. I hope that when she cursed you, you didn't respond. I hope you know by now that you are not the only person who has had to suffer at the hands of relatives who refuse to hand over gifts that were sent from abroad for others.

If your niece would like to be remembered as a dishonest person, you can't change that. I repeat, leave her alone.
