Dearest friend, I am a preacher with the Seed Harvest Ministry with name Luis Kennedy, and I will like to get advice from you. I believe the advice I need will be profitable. A few year's ago I was in Myanmar where I had established a little congregation where I preached regularly, but the civil war escalated and the church was converted to a hospital of sought. On one faithful day three British Soldiers came to me and left one trunk box containing money with me and swore to come back for it. When the war in Myanmar intensified I deposited this box in a financial firm in Malaysia, an Asian country, I was escorted to Malaysia, by the UN soldiers who felt the content of the trunks were documents and hospital materials and never cared to check the trunks, I was air lifted to Malaysia with other refugees then, I stayed in Malaysia and when I was getting frustrated I returned to London only to find out that two of the three Soldiers died in Battle while the last was declared MIA (Missing in Action). Now I have the fund, which the soldiers said was over one million United States dollars, but it lies in a Finance firm in Malaysia. I was contacted in a letter dated 3rd of March by the firm in Malaysia asking me to indicate if I was in receipt of the letter as a sign that I am living and still subscribed for their service. I am interested in using a small fraction of this money, much less than ten percent for a re-organization of the work of God, but I do not need the rest and do not want to have any direct dealing with it, but I need someone who will be able to use the fund better maybe for charity or something universally profitable, I have thought of doing it myself but, my ministry is the apocalypse and I believe and preach the soon coming of the Lord which make me not indulgent in reliance on money or wealth in any form. Also do not have the money that has accrued on the service and safe deposit of the company that holds the fund, I will be glad if you have any interest in the direction of maybe managing or transmitting the fund as you prefer in your capacity and understanding strictly for the work of God. Get back to me with your decision and idea either on telephone, +447031818035. The Almighty God will forever bless you for your help towards his church and his children. Be blessed in the name of the Lord. Pastor Luis Kennedy.
