Am Gillian Bayford and I would like to know if you can handle some huge amount of money (US$7.5 Million ) meant for charitable organisation. All you have to do is to work for the lord by helping in finding charitable organisation and foster himes and sharing the said fund to them acording to instructions. My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver and stroke) and with this ailment i cant continue in the work so i would like to know if you will partake in the work and you will be immensely compensated.
I will be awaiting to read from you.
Mrs. Margaret G. Bayford
