Dear Good Friend.

I greet you in the name of the Lord.

I am Mrs.Joan Rosenthal from Solomon Islands. I am married
to Mr.John
W. Rosenthal who served as an archdeacon in the St.Micheal's
archdeaconry in Ivory Coast for 9 years(nine years) before
he died on the 15th August 2005. We were married for eleven
years without a child. He died after a brief illness that
lasted for only four days.

Ever before his death we were both born again Christians and
have sown into
many ministries. Since his death I decided not to remarry,
but feeling quite
lonely if not the Lord who has been my partner and

When my late husband was alive he concealed the sum of$8.5
Million in the trunk box and deposited it under the care of
a security company in Cote D' lvoire as family valuable for
security purpose. Presently this money is still in the
custody of the security company in Cote D' lvoire.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the
next Eight months due
to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to
donate this fund
to a church,organization or good person that will utilize
this money the
way I am going to instruct herein.

I want a church,organization or good person that will use
this funds to help
the orphans, widows and other people that need financial

Using part of this money to provide facilities for God,s
work, taking the
gospel to greater height is my major reason of donating this
funds out.

The Bible made us to understand that"Blessed is the hand
that giveth".

l took this decision because I don't have any child that
will inherit this
money and my husband relatives are not Christians and it had
been their
wish to see my husband dead in order that they might inherit
his wealth
since we have no son. These people are therefore not worthy
of this 

This is why I am taking this decision. Meanwhile I am not
afraid of death
I know where I am going. It is only a sinner who's death is
painful I don't
need any telephone communication in this regard 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 and l know
that With God
all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact
of the security company  in Cote d' lvoire. I will also
issue a letter of authorization to the that will prove you
the present beneficiary of this money. I also want you
to always uplift me in prayer.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian.
Whoever that
Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in truth and faith,
"serving him with
all you have, knowing that naked we come and naked we must

 and any delay in your reply will give
me room in sourcing another good person, church,organization
for this same

Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated
Hoping to receive your response immedaitely.
Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.
Your Sister in Christ.
Sister Joan Rosenthal.
