May the blessings and favour of the Lord be and abide with you Peace be with you,and how are you doing?. My intention of contacting you is to solicit your assistance for a project, which will be mutually beneficial. Though my contact to you is to a large extent unconventional, the prevailing circumstances necessitated my action. I am Mrs. Beate Von Kessel from Germany. I am married to Late Mr. David Kessel of blessed memory was an oil explorer in Angola and Uganda for twelve years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for twelve years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both devoted Christians. Since his death I have been battling with both Cancer and Fibroid problems. When my late Husband was alive he made a huge deposit in millions of US dollars with a Deposit Company outside our country. (I will tell you the amount as we proceed). Recently, my doctor told me that I have only few months to live due to cancer sickness. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either an organization or devoted individual that will utilize this money the way I will instruct herein. I want this organization or devouted individual to use this money in all sincerity to fund churches, orphanages, widows, and also propagating the word of GOD and to ensure that the society upholds the views and belief of the Almighty. The Holy Bible emphasizes so much on GOD'S benevolence and this encouraged me to take the bold step. I took this decision because I don't have any child nor heir that will inherit this money and don't want a situation whereby this money will be used in an Unholy manner. Hence the reason for this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with GOD the most beneficent and the most merciful. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health status.With GOD all things are possible and the word of GOD says: "There must be no coercion in matters of faith").As soon as I receive your reply on Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, I shall give you the contact information of the Deposit Company oversea where the money was deposited. I will also issue a letter of authority to the Deposit Company authorizing them that the said fund have being willed to you and a copy of such authorization will be forwarded to you.I want you and the community where you reside to always pray for me. My happiness is that I lived a true devoted christian life worthy of emulation. Whoever that wants to serve GOD must serve him in truth and in fairness. I will not stipulate any precise amount to reward you, as it will have to be on pre-negotiated terms based on your level of involvement. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give room in sourcing for another organization or a devoted Individual for this same purpose. Until I hear from you by email, my dreams will rest squarely on your Shoulders. May the Almighty GOD continue to guide and protect you. Mrs. Beate Von Kessel
