    Dear Friend, Greetings from LUTH.

    Hospital and God bless I am

    Mrs Rita Hafsat, A widow to the Late Clark Hank, I am 53years old, and a new Christian convert, suffering from long time, cancer of the ear.

    From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that I will not live long according to my doctors. This is because my cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage.

    My late husband was killed during the US raid, against terrorism in Afghanistan when he traveled to Afghanistan to monitor a Hospital / a Humanitarian Found at (HHF) he was setting up for Afghan masses as of then; whose majority and 99 percent of them were

    Muslims, Islamic scholars and loyalists. During the period of our marriage we could not produce any child. But My Late Husband was The The Very Wealthy and Is the the After Is the the HIS Death, Is the the I Inherited Trade Shows Trade shows All Is the the HIS Businesses and Wealth, and Is the the when Is the the I noticed that My condition A amperes is not Improving rather you you IT gets worsen by Is Is the Day Is the I decided to go to Africa, and I prayed over it. So I am willing to donate the sum of $ 5.8

    Million to you for charity, Evangelical work and the less privileged, churches, orphanages and widows, Propagating the word of God


    I took this decision to myself because I do not have any child and that my husband's relatives are not Christians and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. Because I have come to find out that wealth is not Christ.

    Please do not hesitate to post a comment. And upon my instruction, I will file an

    application for the change of ownership . I hear from you and you give me the assurance of the fund properly.

    May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. I Await Your Urgent response to this email and your telephone numbers and be informed of any delay in your response will give me a room for sourcing for a church, another person or Christian individual for this same purpose.


    Yours in Christ.
