My Request I personally obtained your contact from internet and hoping that you are reliable and trustworthy. I am Mrs. Maria Roha presently staying in United Kingdom. I was married to late Engr. Jim Roha, who worked as the financial director under United Nation Development Programmed for Asia for more than ten years before he died in the year 2004. 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 remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home, which the bible is against. When my husband was alive he deposited the sum of 16.8Million Great British Pounds GBP (Sixteen Million Eight Hundred Thousand GBP) with Standard Life Bank (SLB) in my name. Presently, this money is still with the Bank; recently, my doctor told me that I would not last long due to cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my partial paralysis sickness. Having known my condition I decided to keep this fund in the Bank. I want an organization or an individual that will use this fund for orphanages, Widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The bible made us 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 efforts to be lavished by unbelievers. And I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know 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 regards because of my health, hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development but my Career in the hospital will act principally on my behalf and she will liaise with you for the entire process on the transaction, With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply Mrs. Srbije P. Violeta will give you the further directives according to my instructions, I want you to always pray for me and I believe 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. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another person for this same purpose. Hoping to receive your reply and remain blessed my regards, Mrs. Maria Roha.
