From: Mrs.Maria Thurmond

I am the above named person from Malaysia but now undergoing medical treatment . I am
married to Dr. George Thurmond who worked with Malaysia embassy in South Africa for nine 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 re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is 
against.When my late husband was alive he deposited some huge amount of money with a 
finance/security company in Europe. 
Presently, this money is still with the Security
Company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next couple of  months due to 
cancer problem.
Though what disturbs me most is my stroke. 
 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 here in. I want a church or individual that will use this to fund 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 because I donít have any child
that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I donít want my 
husbandís hard earned money to be misused by
unbelievers. I donít 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 bossom of the Lord.
Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case
and I shall hold my peace. I donít need any telephone
communication in this regard because of my health,and
because of the presence of my husbandís relatives
around me always. I donít want them to know about this
development. With God all things are possible. 
I want you and the church to always pray
for me because the lord is my shephard. 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
  Any delay in your reply will give me room in
sourcing for a church or christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will 
act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you a.s.a.p.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. 
Yours in Christ, 
Mrs Maria Thurmond.
