First, you are not yet a Mason and have not earned the privilege of calling us your brothers. Second, you cannot expect instant responses from a volunteer in an organization that meets once each month. Have you tried to go to one of their meetings an hour before it would start and introduce yourself?

I suspect that no one has made any promises to you as by your own words you haven’t made contact yet.

Try again but please bear in mind that they are under absolutely no obligation to engage with you.

Oh boy…..we see this all the time, especially in Africa.  You’ve been tricked.  You cannot just “register” and become a Mason.  Joining Freemasonry is a long process of getting to personally know lodge members, in person, and then applying and being interviewed, the a lodge of Masons needs to vote to accept you, and THEN you need to attend meetings to receive your initiation through the three degrees, which can take up to three years to complete.  Have you done any of this?  My guess is you have not.

No, my friend, it appears you have been tricked.  They probably asked you to pay money as well, right?  This is theft.  Fraud.  And it is sadly something that happens quite often in your part of the world.

Sorry, but you are not a Freemason.
