PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD BECAUSE IT IS A VOW I MADE BEFORE GOD.
This message might meet you in utmost surprise. However,
I am Mrs Tina Williams from Barham I am married to Dr Larry Paul Williams who worked with Bahamas embassy in Benin Cotonou for ten years before he died last year. 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 Christians.
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 ( 4,2 Million Euro ) with one Bank here in Benin Cotonou, Now this money is still in the Bank.
Now my Doctor told me that he is not shore of me if I would even last for the next Six months due to My cancer problem,Though what disturbs me most is my stroke Having know my condition I decided to donate this fund to church or better still a christian individual that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct here.
I want a church that will use this fund churches, orphanages 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 don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.
I don't 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 hence I know where I am going. 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 don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I will give you the contact of the BANK IN BENIN COTONOU where the fund is deposited. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived 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 searching for another church or christian individual for this same purpose.
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here.On your reciept of your mail i will be givent to you the Bank information and our Barrister to enable you contact with them for immediate transfer as soon as i recive your reply.
Please contact me on my private e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hoping to hear from you.
Remain blessed in the name of the lord.
Yours in Christ.
Mrs Tina Williams.
