Dearest In The Lord,
I know that this mail maybe of a surprise to you and i will be highly appreciated to have your positive response Through My Private Email Adress (email@example.com)
I am the above named person from Republic of Qatar. I am married to Engr. Williams Benenoch who was the chief executive director of an oil and gas producing company here in Cote D' Ivoire for eleven years before he died in the year 2003.
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 Christian. 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 alive he deposited the sum of $3.5Million (three.five Million U.S. Dollars)in the Security Company here in Abidjan,and adviced me that he used my name as the next of kin and that the security company officials does noty know the real content of the trunk box because he comorflage it as (FAMILY VALUABLES AND TREASURES) it is still with the Security Company .
Recently, my Doctor told me that i have serious sickness which is cancer 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 Iam going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that,Blessed is the hand that giveth, Itook the is decision because I dont have any child that will inherit this money and I don't want my husbands efforts to be in vain. I dont want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way.
This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace and i know with this development With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the security company here in Abidjan.I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. 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 act accordingly as I Stated herein.
Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Sister Joyce B. Benenoch.
