My Dear I remain yours sister.
I am Mrs. Helen Dickson. A widow to late Mr. David Dickson, who worked with Elf Petroleum Company in France for nine years before he died in the year 2002. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $18.5 Million with a Bank in Benin Republic Presently this money is still in the custody of the Bank in Benin.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem, but I know that my doctor is not God. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an Organization or good person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein.
I an Organization or good person that will use this fund for Orphanages, Widows and other peoples that need help and also propagating the word of God and to endeavours that the house of God is maintained.
Gods made us to understand that "Blessed is the hand that gives " I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not even good at all because they are the one that are responsible for the death of my husband in other to have all my late husband properties and I don't want my husband's effort to be used by those that conspired for his death or for ungodly things.
This is why I am taking this decision, I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosoms of the Lord. Exodus 14 Vs 14 says that "the Lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace".
I donât need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presences of my husband relatives are around me always. I don't want them to know about this development and I know that with God all things are possible to those who trust in Him and to those who work by faith. As soon as I received your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank in Benin.
I will also issue a letter of authorization to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. I also want you, or the Organization to always pray for me because the Lord is my only Shepherd.
My happiness is that I lived a life of a sincerity and truthfulness as i can. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve Him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful through your life.
Contact me and any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another good person, church or organization for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to receive your response immediately,
NOTE PLEASE YOU HAVE TO RESPOND BACK TO ME WITH THIS ID BELOW FOR SECURITY REASON.
Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
I remain yours sister.
Mrs. Helen Dickson.
