Subject: DONATION FOR THE LORD
Mrs Nancy Hannah Alfred Patrick.
Dearest in the Lord.
PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD.I am the above named person from Senegal. I am married to Dr Alfred Patrick who worked with Senegalise Embassy in South Africa for nine years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a
brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians and we lived happilly. Since his death, I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is
really against. When my late husband was alive he secured $15 Million
(Fifteen Million U.S. Dollars) with financial institution here in
Cote D'Ivoire.Presently, this money is still with the financialinstitution. Recently, my Doctor told me that from all thetest conducted on my health, I am not going to last long,expecially, due to my cancer and stroke. But what disturbs me most now is stroke.
Having known my condition, I decided to donate this fund to churches or Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct. I want a church or individual that will use this money to fund churches, Orphanages and Widows. Also, the propagation of the work of God, building and maintaining the house of God through this money, is very important. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians. I don't
want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers, for their own selfish interest and in an ungodly manner. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my h ealth, and because of the presence of my husband?s relatives around me sometimes. I dont want them to know about this development, but I know that With God all things are possible.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the
Financial institution in Ivory coast. I will also give you all
information regarding the deposit of this morning. I will also issue
you a letter of authority that will empower you as the original-
beneficiary of this fund. I want you and your church to always pray for me because God work in misterious ways. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Who ever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in
spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.
Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for a church or christian individual for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. Hoping to hear from you soon. Please you can reach me though via this Email:email@example.com
Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Nancy Hannah Alfred Patrick.
