Beloved In Christ,
Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Mrs joy bine;from
Solomon Island. I am married to Mr. Lobi bine who worked with Solomon
Island embassy in Ivory Coast for Nine years before he died in the year
2002.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief
illness that lasted for only four days.Now a widow to Late Lobi bine, I
am 58 years old, I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time
cancer of the breast.
From all indications, my condition is serious and is quite obvious that
I may not live more than four months, because the cancer stage has gotten
to a very severe state and my doctor has told me this.My late husband was
very wealthy and after his death,I inherited all his business and wealth.As
my doctor told me that I may not live for more than four months,I am so
scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part of the inherited wealth,
by contributing to the development of evangelism in part of the world.
I want an orgarnisation or a reliable person that will use this fund for
orphanages,widows, propagating the service of HUMANITY and to endeavor that
the less privilleged homes is maintained.I took this decision because I
don't have any child that will inherit this money after my death. I selected
your ministry after visiting the website for this purpose and prayed over
I am willing to donate the sum of US$5.000,000.00(Five Million USD)to your
Ministry for the development of evangelism and also as aids for the less
privileged around you.Please note that, this fund is laying with a SECURITY
COMPANY Here In Abidjan Cote d Ivoire. and my personal doctor will help
me to file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in your
name or the name of your ministry because he is the only one i have left
that i trust him so much
and i believe he will always do my wish. Please, do not reply me if you
have the intention of using this fund for personal use.Lastly, I want your
ministry to keep praying for me as regarding my health because I have come
to find out since my spiritual birth recently
that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life is vanity upon
vanity.If you have to die says the Lord,keep fit and I will give you the
crown of life.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated
herein.May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the
sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and forever more.
I await your urgent reply.
Mrs. Joy Bine.
