Dearest in the Lord
My name is Mrs. Sympathy Peters a nationality of Cape Verde. I was married to late Dr.Jerome Martins Peters who worked with Cape Verdian embassy in Cote d'Ivoire for nine years before he died in the month March 2004. We were married for twenty years with a child. He died after the illness that Lasted for long four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of $5Million (Five Million U.S. Dollars) with one of the banks here in Cote d'Ivoire . Presently, this money is still with the bank.
Recently my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to my cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a person or church that will use this fund to churches,orphanages,researchcentres and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.
I took this decision because I have a child that will inherit this money but my son can not carryout this work only because I and my late husband decided to use some of the money to work for God and live some for our son to have a better live. Our son is just 15 year old now and has been in here since we moved over to serve our country. My husbandīs relatives are not Christians and so I donīt want my families hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.I donīt want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.
I am not afraid of death since I know where I am going to.I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I dont want your telephone communication in this regard because of my health conditon my Doctor told me to avoid recieveing telephone call and  because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I donīt want any of my husband family relatives to recieve this money. With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/Bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I live a life of a worthy Christian.
Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. 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 here.
Expecting to hearing from you, remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Mrs. Sympathy Peters
