From Mrs. Hatch Compliments. PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD. My name is Joy Hatch a nationality of Philippine, I am married to Mr. Kelvin Hatch who worked with Philippine embassy in Cote d'ivoire for nine years before he died in the year 2001. 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 living together in good harmony.Before he death we were both born again Christians.When my late husband was alive we deposited the sum of USD$1.6Million (One Million six hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with one of good 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 cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church that will use this fund to churches, orphanages, Research centres 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 grivet. I finally concluded after listening to thanksgiving service. I took this decision because I don?t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband?s relatives are not Christians and I don?t want my family 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 bosom 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 because of the presence of my family 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 shall give you the contact of the bank along with the information concerning the deposited money in the bank and as well introduce you to the bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the partner and the beneficiary of the money. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. 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. Provide me with your telephone/fax number, contact address, full name so that i can be able to introduce you to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund. Any delay in your reply will give me room in looking for contact for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act Accordingly as I stated here. Expecting to hear from you. Expecting to hear from you. Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs Joy Hatch
