I am more than happy in your reply to my mail.How are you to day? hope fine.
Mine is a little bit cold over here in Dakar Senegal. In this camp we are
only allowed to go out from the camp only on mondays and fridays of the
week. Its just like one staying in the prison and i hope by God's grace i
will come out here soon.We don't have any relatives now whom we can go to,
all our relatives ran away in the middle of the war. The only person we have
now is Rev.collins ,who is the pastor of the (Christ for all Churches)
here in the camp. He has been very nice to me since i came here but i am not
living with him rather i am leaving in the women's hostel because the camp
have two hostels one for men the other for women.honey i want to let you
know that colour and age dont matter in life what mattes is love i which to
come to you pls you call me with.
The Pastors Tel number is (00221-2205053) if you call and tell him that you
want to speak with me he will send for me in the woman hostel and i will
come and anwser your call. As a refugee here i don't have any right or
privilledge to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the
law of this muslem country.I want to go back to my studies. because i want
to hold a midwiffrey certificate also.
Please listen to this, i have my late father's deposit certificate and
death certificate here with me which i will send to you later,because when
he was alive he deposited some amount of money which he used my name as the
next of kin,the amount in question is $ 4.750 (Four Million Seven Hundred
and fiftyThousand USDollars).
So, i will like you to help me transfer this money to your account and from
it you can send some money for me to get my travelling documents and air
ticket to come overthere to meet with you. I kept this secret to people in
the camp here, the only person that knows about it is the Revrend because he
is like a father to me. So in the light of above i will like you to keep the
secret to yourself and don't tell it to anyone for i am afraid of loosing my
life and the money, if people gets to know about it.
I like honest and understanding people,truthful and a man of vision,
trustworthy and hardworking.My favourite language is english and i speak it
very fluently. Meanwhile, i will like you to call me like i said i have a
lot to tell you. Have a nice day and think about me. Awaiting to hear from
you soonest .
Yours in love,
