Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, having known the truth, I
had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for
eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God & his mercies and
glory upon my life.

I am Mrs .Sheila Johnson the wife of Mr Harold Johnson, my husband worked
with the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for twenty years before he died in the year

We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband 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 the sum of US$3.5M. (Three Million Five Hundred Thousand
U.S.Dollars) with a Bank in Europe. Presently, this money is still with the
Bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to
sign for the release of this money or rather issue a letter of authorization
to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds
from the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money 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 don't have any child that will inherit this
money and my husband's 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 hence I know where I am going.

I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.

Exodus{14 VS14}says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my

I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my
soundless voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I
don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are

Your Sister in Christ,

Mrs. Sheila Johnson.
