Greeting from Massouma Johnson
Greetings to you and your family in the name of God, in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and pains taking efforts via searching I made on the internet on my bed side. Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Oesophagi Cancer. Though its a sad and long story but I will cut it short for youre quick and easy understanding. I am Massouma Johnson (Mrs) widow to Late. Dr Mubarak Johnson, former Kuwait ambassador here in Ivory Coast. My husband was murdered alongside our only son who is envious of his position in the same office.
When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $(5.6 Million) USD five Million six hundred thousand Dollar in a Metal Trunk Box as a Family Valuable in a Finance Security Company here in Abidjan. Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden, orphanages and the less privileged in the society.
Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or a God fearing person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church or a God fearing Person that will use this fund for orphanages, hospitals, schools, widows, for the propagating peace and to endeavour that the house of God is maintained.
I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money
and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. 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.
What are required of you are your honesty, trust and sincerity. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Massouma Johnson (Mrs)
