Dear in Christ , May our good Lord bless you and reward you for your going out and coming in through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen. I am the above named person from Kuwait . I am married to Mr Johnson Anny who worked with Kuwait embassy in Abidjan for nine years before he died in the year 2003. We were married for nineteen years with a child He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death, we were both born again Christian.Since his death, I decided not to remarry or get achild outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he left the sum of $5.5 Million (Five million five hundred thousand U.S.Dollars) in a fixed deposit with a Bank. Presently, this money is still in the Bank.Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight days due to cancer problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a person 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 to understand that ďBlessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because of my only child that will inherit 25% from this money and help to secure a good education & accomodation and also for the seck of God i will like you take him as your child and been a guidiance to him where by my husband relatives are not Christians and I donít want my husbandís efforts to be used by unbelievers. I donít 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 that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that ďthe lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peaceĒ. I donít need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health. With God all things are possible.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank, for you to contact with them directly for onward transfer. I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you as the present beneficiary of my funds. I want you and your family to always pray for me and my son 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 life Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply on (email@example.com) Remain blessed in the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs Gift Anny and only son David
