Dearest one in the Lord, It is my Pleasure to write to you after considering your profile my name is Shify Jamilah a nationality of Dublin. I am married to Mr. Janan Jamilah who worked with Avan Innovation & Technology Centre, in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2003. 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. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of$10.5Million (ten.five Million US Dollars) in a Security Company with my name as next of kin though Security Trust Company officials does not know the real content of the trunk box as money because my late husband made the deposit and declared it content as family valuable for export. Presently, this money is still with the Security Company. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not lastlong 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 that will use this fund to churches, orphanages, Research centres 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 family 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 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health because of the presence of my family relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Security Trust Company. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. 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 for a church or Christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here. Please i will like you to contact me through this email address: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Hoping to hearing from you with this email address above. Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. Yours in Christ, Mrs. Shify Jamilah
