Dearest, RE:ENDEAVOUR TO ASSIST ME IN THE NAME OF GOD. I am Christian Hamilton Johnston, a British Citizen, an adopted son of late Harry Hamilton Johnston, and his wife Evelyn Johnston as my parents / guardians. At the age of (10yrs) I was made to understand that my late father / guardian married for (15yrs) fifteen years without a child before I was adopted into the family. At that same years, after the death of my late father / guardian, I was baptize under the parental guardian of my mother and Rev. John Kelly of the catholic diocese who really stood by our side to assisted us after the death of our father / guardian. After my baptism, my mother / guardian who was suffering from chronic cancer of the lungs latter died (5yrs) five years after the death of her husband, am now left under the parental guardian of Rev. John Kelly of the catholic diocese of Cambridge and a lady staff of the social welfare office who were responsible for my education carrier at oxford university. To God be the glory, before her death in London, she called my attention to ascertain some of my late father / guardian proofs of vital documents of huge amount of money he secured with a storage firm in Ghana, when working with the Ghana Embassy in Liberia. My late mother / guardian advise me that the huge amount was propose to do the work of God for a better life, because she does not want me to surfer in the hands of my late father relatives, I should keep it confidential from the relatives who are not Christians, because the money is not for them., so she does not want the money to be misused by unbelievers for their own selfish interest and ungodly manner. Having known my condition, I need the assistance of Christian individual or God-fearing person that will assist me utilize this money the way I am going to instruct, because my late guardians wanted to build Orphanage home and also, the propagation of the work of God, building and maintaining the house of God with this money, as propose by my late father. which is very importantānt. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that grivet. I took this decision because am not married and I don't have any blooded relatives that will inherit, I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. (Exodus 14 VS 14) says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. Presently, am in Accra under the council of catholic missionaries in Ghana, I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my situation and because of the presence of my other relatives around me in the camp, but sometimes, but if there is urgent need for that we shall communicate, as I don't want them to know about this development, but I know that With God all things are possible. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.
