Dear in the Lord I am the Mrs Prisca Ousmane from Sierra Leone. I am married to Mr. Michelle Ousmane who worked with Sierra Leone embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry 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 in a fixed deposit account here in Abidjan. Recently, my doctor told me I would not last the next eight months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a charity organisation that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphans, widows, propagating the word of God and strive to maintain the house of God. The Bible made us understand that "Blessed is the hand that gives." I took this decision because I have no child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are not Christians and I do not want my husband efforts to be used by unbelievers. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in a diabolical way. That's why I am taking this decision. I have no fear of death hence I know where I go. I know I will 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." I do not need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I do not want to know about this development. Note that the data I need to get the letter of authorization to test in the name legally to make the beneficiary of my fund. I would like to provide the following details in your reply to my mail. 1. Your full name 2. Your full address 3. Your age 4. Your occupation 5. Your Private number With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your response and the information required above yours, I will give you the contact of the Bank in Abidjan. I also delivered a letter of authorization that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me because the Lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful throughout your life. Contact me immediately because any delay in your reply will give me room in looking for another person for this same purpose. If I say that you will act accordingly as I have said here. Hoping to get a response. Remain blessed in the Lord Mrs Prisca Ousmane.
