Dear in Christ,
This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be treated as such. God is a spirit, 
and they that worship him must worship him in truth and in spirit. Based on this scripture, it 
became obvious that I should do the right thing if I must enter into the kingdom of God.
I am, Deacon Richard Astor the legal adviser to late Mr. Mike & Carol Hall, a God fearing and 
dedicated couple. They were very wealthy but had no child. They traveled to Patong-Thailand for 
Christmas holiday but met death on the 26th of December 2004 during the Tsunami disaster 
As their legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr. Mike Hall instructed me to write his 
WILL, because they had no child, he dedicated their wealth to God. They had a lot of landed 
properties houses Stocks/bonds, etc. 
According to the WILL, their assets should be given out to a ministry for the work of God. As their 
legal adviser, all the documents for the fund that are deposited with the Vault Company are in my 
care. As a born again Christian, I have been reading my bible and I have to do what is lawful and 
right in the sight of God by giving out the fund to the chosen ministry for the purpose of God\'s 
work as instructed by the owners before there death. After my fasting and prayers Today, I asked 
God to make his choice and direct me to an honest Christian or the chosen ministry that deserves 
this fund by his Grace. I then came across your address on the Internet. I appeal to you to use the 
fund wisely for things that will glorify the name of God.
Also, could you get back to me having visiting the above website to enable us discuss in a more 
clarifying manner to the best of your understanding? I must say that I\'m very uncomfortable 
sending this message to you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and 
decides to go public. In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message 
is strictly for Charity.
May God bless you as you make up your mind to work for God.
Deacon Richard Astor.
