in the name of our lord Jesus Christ. I am Mrs.Kadi Ouedraogo, a widow
to late Adama Ouedraogo. I am 52years old, a new Christian convert,
suffering from long time pancreatic cancer. From all indication, my
condition is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that I won't
live more than six months according to my doctors. This is because the
cancer has gotten to a very bad stage. My late husband was killed
during the Cote'd Ivoire civil war, and during the period of our
marriage we couldn't produce any child.
My late husband was
very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and
wealth. The doctors has advised me that I may not live more than six
months so I now decided to divide the part this wealth, to contribute
to the development of the less privileged ones around the globe. I
selected you after visiting the Internet and I prayed over it.I am
willing to donate the sum of 5,000,000US dollars, to help, widow an d
they less privileged ones in the rural areas.
Please I want to
note that this fund is lying in a state owned bank. I honestly pray
that this money, when transferred will be used for the said purpose
because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without Christ
is vanity. May the grace of our lord Jesus the love of God and the
fellowship of the holy sprite be with you and your family.I await your
