RE: PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD.
I am the above named person from USA. I was married to Dr.Donald Miller who worked with American embassy in UK for nine years before he died in the year 2000.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. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of USD$3.2Million (Three Million two hundred thousand U.S.Dollars) with one finance/security company in Europe. Presently, this money is still not last for the next three months due to cancer problem.
Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. 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 herein.
I want a church or God-fearing person to utilize this fund for 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 upon myself 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 since it's a necessary end and it will come when it must. Again, to the children of God, it's not the end of life but the beginning of an everlasting life. I know that I am going to be in the Bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14:14 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 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 shall give you the contact of the Finance/ Security Company in Europe. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original- 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 lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and in truth because wealth acquisition without Christ is vanity upon vanity all will be vanity. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or Christian
