From: Mrs Edith Zuma.
I am the above named person from Tunisia. I am married to Bishop James Zuma who is the Bishop of St Peters Anglican Church of Cote d, Ivoire for nineten years before he died in the year 2002. We were married for fiften years without a child. He died afte
r a brief illness that lasted for only two weeks . Before his death we are happy husband and wife Christian family. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was a
he deposited the sum of $10.Million (Ten Million U.S. Dollars)in the Bank here in Cote d, Ivoire is still with the Bank .Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is Cadiac problem. The one that disturbs me most is my stroke sickness
Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to ende
avor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to know that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I dont want my hus
bands efforts to be used by self acclaimed Christians. I dont want in away where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this Fund. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.
I know that I am going to be in the hand of the Lord . Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my problems and I shall hold my peace. I dont need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husbands re
latives around me always. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my straint. 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.Contact me on the above e_mail address for more informations, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church or individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will follow as I Stated her
Hoping to hear from you.
God bless us all.
Yours Sister in Christ.
