Dear Beloved in Christ, 

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,
knowing the truth and the truth have set me free.
Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for 
eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God's mercy and glory upon my life.I have the 
pleasure to share my testimony with you, having seen your contact from the ecunet. 

I am VIM  GRACE, the legal adviser to late Mr. and Mrs. Bright Williams, a British couple that 
lived in my Country Abidjan for 25 years before they both died in the plane crash late last year. 
These couples were good Christians, they so dedicated to God but they had no child till they died. 
Throughout their stay in my country, they acquired a lot of properties like lands,house properties, 
etc. As their legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr. Bright Williams instructed me to 
write his WILL.

Because they had no child, they dedicated their wealth to God. According to the WILL, the 
properties have to be sold and the money be given out to a ministry for the work of God.

As their legal adviser, all the documents for the properties were in my care. He gave me the 
authority to sell the properties and give out the fund to the Ministries for the work of God. In 
short, after their death, I sold all the properties I was able to realized $14,000,000.00 (forteen 
million US dollars). Instead of giving the fund out for the work of God as instructed by the owner 
before his death, I converted the fund to myself with the intention of investing the fund abroad 
for my personal use. I was afraid of putting the fund in the Bank, because I have to give account 
to the bank on how I got the money. I then packaged the fund in consignments and deposited the 
consignments with a security company. 

I did not want the management of the Security Company to know the content of the consignments, 
therefore I registered the content of the consignments as Gold Bars. Now, the security company 
believes that what I deposited with them was Gold Bars. I had encounter with Christ when Pastor 
Benny Hinn was preaching on television concerning Ananias and Saphira in Acts 5:1-11. After hearing 
the word of God, I gave my life to Christ and became a born again Christian. As a born again 
Christian, I started reading my bible and one day, the Lord opened my eyes to Ezekiel  33: 18 and 
19 where the word of God says: \"When the righteous truth from his righteousness, and committee 
iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which 
is lawful and right, he shall live thereby. From the scripture, I discovered that the only way I 
could have peace in my life is to do what is lawful and right by giving out the fund as instructed 
for the work of God by the owner before his death. 

I have asked God for forgiveness and I know<BR>that God have forgiven me. But I have to do what is 
lawful and right in the sight of God by giving out the fund to the chosen ministry for the purpose 
of God\'s work as instructed by the owner before his death. After my fasting and prayers, I asked 
God to make his choice and direct me to a honest Christian or the chosen ministry that deserves 
this fund by his Grace. I then came across your address on the ecunet as I was browsing through a 
Christian site, and as a matter of fact, it is not only you or your ministry that I picked on the 
Christian site initially, but after my fervent prayer over it, then you were nominated to me 
through divine revelation from God, so these are how I received such a divine revelation from the 
Lord, how I got your contact information, and I then decided to contact you for the fund to be used 
wisely for things that will glorify the name of God. 

I have notified the Security Company where I deposited the consignments that contained the fund, 
that I am moving the consignment abroad and the security company has since been waiting for my 
authority for the consignment to leave my country and move to abroad. So if you know that you will 
use this fund honestly for things that will glorify God\'s name, then do urgently contact me and 
the details will be given to you on how you will be able to receive the fund in your country 
through the security company. You should also forward to me your,contact address, telephone and fax 
number for easy communication Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.  
Yours in Christ.
