    $1M is a lot of money and to me would make a world of difference. I’ve lost my job after working nearly 30 years. Was not blessed with a wealthy family, so college was out of the question. Instead joined the Marines in the early 70’s. Afterward started a family and have worked up till recently, when I was let go because my new boss simply did not like me. At age 58 and with a 6 year old, I worry how I will be able to raise him I need $1M, so if you are on this list and find it in your heart.. please help me and my family.

    well, it is a good thing to be recon among the world’s richest people. but my advice to all these wealthy men is in case there is one among them who have not been born again that is giving his life to Jesus Christ i want the person to know that something most important is still missing because what shall it profit a man after becoming very rich in this world and he or she latter dies “as it is appointed unto men to die once” then the person will spent eternity in pains in hell fire. therefore if you want to be born again and you don’t know how,you can inquire from this email chukwuekeobinna@yahoo.com and you will be directed on the simple steps you will take to make peace with your creator for this is the most important thing in someones life for there is no gain if one gains the whole world and loses his own soul thanks and remain blessed
