Another letter from her

Hello My Dearest ,
How was your day...? I believe it was fine.Mine here is very hot and like you know I am living in the refugee camp here in Dakar.In this camp Its just like one staying in the prison and I hope by Gods grace I will come out here soon.

I don't have any relatives now whom I can go to as all my relatives ran away in the middle of the war.The only person I have now is Rev.Timothy Esoh who is the pastor of the (Living Spring Christain Church ) here in the camp, he has been very nice to me since I came here but I am not living with him rather I live in the females hostel because the camp have two hostels one for men the other for women.
The Pastors Tel number is code+221-(771036102) if you call, please tell him that you want to speak with me so that he will send for me in the hostel. Call at 12 pm GMT today please. As a refugee here I don't have any right or privileged to any thing be it money or whatever because it is against the law of this country.
I want to go back to my studies because I only attended my first year in the university before the traggic incident that lead to the death of my parents took place.Please listen to this,I have my late father's statement of account and death certificate here with me which I will send to you later,because when he was alive he deposited some amount of money in a leading bank in Europe which he used my name as the next of kin,the amount in question is $6.5M(six Million five Hundred Thousand Dollars). 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 over to meet with you. I kept this secret to people in the camp here the only person that knows about it is the Reverend because he is like a father to me.
So in the light of above I will like you to keep it 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.
Remember I am giving you all this information due to the trust I deposed on you.I love you because you are an honest and understanding man.You are truthful ,a man of vision and hardworking.I love you my sweet heart, I will soon be with you for more love an possibly marriage if things work out between us .

My favourite language is english.Meanwhile I will like you to call me like I said I have alot to tell you. Call around 12:00 pm GMT today.I want to hear your voice of love.
Have a nice day and think about me. Awaiting to hear from you soonest
Yours Forever in mind,
