PLEASE USE IT FOR GOD.AND HIS CHILDREN Dear Sir/Madam, I am Blessing Udimko a Sierra-Leone woman and wife of late Dr Clifford Udimko from Sierra Leone. He was a diamond merchant who also worked with Sierra-Leone Embassy in South Africa for Ten years before he died in the year 2001. We were married for 12 years without children. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only six days. Before his death, we were both born again Christians and we lived happily. I decided not to re-marry after his death or get a child outside my matrimonial home because my Bible forbids it. When my late husband was alive he secured US$22.5M (Twenty-Two, Five- Hundred United States Dollars) with financial institution in Europe. The money is still with the financial institution up till now. I am presently very ill of cancer and stroke. My Doctor recently told me that from the entire test conducted, my health is deteriorating more than expected and I have some few months to live on this earth. Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to Churches or Christian individual that will utilize this money in the following ways (1) To fund / propagate the work of God (Building and Maintaining the house of God with this money) (2) To help the Orphanages, Widows and the less privilege in the Society The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that gives. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not “born again Christians". I don’t want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers, for their own selfish interest and in an ungodly manner. I am not afraid of death because I know where I am going after death. 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 want any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me sometimes”. I don't want them to know about this development, but I know that with God all things are possible. You can always reach me on my email:firstname.lastname@example.org for more clarification As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contacts of my lawyer in Europe, who will then give you the contact of the finance, house after up-grading the documents as right of ownership in your name. He will also give you all information regarding the deposit of this money. I will also ask him to issue you a letter of authority that will empower you to become the beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me because God work in mysterious ways. My happiness is that I have lived a life of a worthy Christian. Who ever 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 a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs. Blessing Udimko. N.B., Reply To email:email@example.com
