Dear Friend, I am the above named person but now undergoing medical treatment for cancer. I was married to Dr. George Peters for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness a devout 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 $15.5Million (Fifteen Million Five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with one finance company in Europe. Presently, this money is with the Security Company. Recently, I was diagnosed with cancer problem. Though this does not bother me.What disturbs me most is my stroke. The doctors have told me I have a few months to live. With this knowledge of 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. I want a church or individual that will use this fund to build a 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 givelth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I dont want my husbands hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. However, I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner,hence my decision not to establish a foundation but give to an individual who will for the fear of God carry out my instruction.I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health since the doctors have advised complete bed rest. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the finance/Security Company Europe and my lawyer. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original- 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 am going to be with the Lord. I expect you to sign an undertaking with my lawyer to carry out my wish to the later. For doing this, I will instruct that 30% of this fund be set aside for your personal use. Remain blessed in the name of the Lord, I await your response. Regards. Mrs. Joy Peters.
