    Calvary Greetings,

    May God continue to strengthen you in your good work to humanity. I cry out to you in anguish to kindly assist me with some money ($350) so i would be able to pay up for my mum’s hospital bills, and my school debts. These two are a big burden to me as i am unemployed at the moment and incapable. Please, i beg you sincerely.

    God bless u as i prayerfully anticipate your kind response.
    Best Regards,
    Oluayo Afolahan.
