in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, We write to solicit your support for a venture that you will agree is a very worthy cause in the interest of the people of Liberia. As you may know by now, Liberia, especially Monrovia, is presently plagued by an unprecedented high wave of violent crime, most notably Armed Robbery. The statistics for November are not yet available, but the figures compiled by the security agencies show that 77 incidents of armed robbery were reported in October – which was a phenomenal increase when compared to the 16 incidents reported in January 2007. As you may know, the reported incidents are only a fraction of the numerous armed robbery attacks taking place in Monrovia. Most incidents are not reported because victims generally don’t see any benefit or importance of reporting their cases. At the rate things are going, and knowing that the security forces so far appear to lack the capacity to contain the situation, it is clear that the nation is heading for a major catastrophe. If left unchecked, this situation could reverse any gains that are being made in poverty eradication, as the few people who manage to break out of the vicious circle of poverty immediately become targets of the armed robbers. Furthermore, judging by the recent attack on the Global Bank vehicle that was carrying money to LAC, and a few other incidents of Highway Robbery that have taken place on vehicles carrying traders to the interior and neighboring countries, it is certain that very soon even our highways will become too dangerous for travel, and only those who have armed escort may be able to travel any distance outside Monrovia. It is obvious that we are facing a desperate situation, for which we seem to have no solution in sight. Many Liberians and foreign residents are beginning to give way to despair. ……../2
- 2Fortunately, the Almighty Lord appears to have heard our prayers and has responded with a workable solution in person of Evangelist Joshua Milton Blahyi – a man who was himself a former fighter known as “General Butt Naked”, but was converted by the Lord to become a great Evangelist. Evangelist Blahyi has initiated a program that is calculated to ably contain the menace now facing our country, if he can get the support he needs to pull this project through. Evangelist Blahyi has discovered that the high rate of crime now taking place in Monrovia is merely a “warning shot” from ex-combatants who feel rejected and ostracized by society. These “outcasts” are craving for attention and acceptance, and unless they can be quickly forgiven, accepted and rehabilitated to rejoin normal society, they will continue to behave as outcasts, which means creating hell for the rest of society. Over the past few weeks, Evangelist Blahyi has been carrying out crusades at various ghettos and criminal hide-outs where he has instantly won the hearts and minds of some of the most hardened criminals and drug addicts, 50 of whom have already “surrendered” to the Lord and are now awaiting rehabilitation into normal society. One only needs to watch the video recording he has of their testimonies and confessions to know how mightily the Lord is moving on Liberia’s behalf by having these hardened criminals give up their trade, repent of their sins, and decide to rejoin normal society as warriors for Christ. The number of hardened persons who have been converted by Evangelist Blahyi in so short a time, is convincing proof that the initiative by this anointed Man of God can succeed in getting these wayward people to abandon their present anti-social behavior so as to resume normal life. However, for this project to succeed, requires a massive level of support in terms of providing accommodation, feeding and gainful employment for those who are being “converted” to facilitate their full rehabilitation and reintegrated into normal society. These 50 converts are temporarily being housed in an unfinished building near Ruth Perry’s house in the Police Academy area in Paynesville where they are being cared for from meager donations made by a few kind hearted people who have been touched by the Lord to support this worthy cause. More support, is urgently needed in terms of money, food and other essential supplies such as mattresses, blankets, medication, mosquito nets, mosquito nets and other basic supplies to take care of these fellow humans who need our love and care to convince them that society cares for them, so that they are not tempted to go back to the bad life they have abandoned. It is in this regard that we invite to support us with clothes, food and other essential supplies that you are in a position to provide. We would also like to invite you and other officials of your organization to visit these “converts” and identify with them and see for yourself the great miracle that the Good Lord has pulled off for Liberia through this project. ……./3
Let us take this opportunity to inform you that the initial plan of this project is to open a major camp at Hotel Africa where the growing number of “converts” will be accommodated while undergoing rehabilitation. As an organization that has continued to show concern for Liberians who are in need, we know we can count on you to support this project so that our country can once more enjoy the peace and tranquility it deserves after 14 years of turmoil. Any amount of support you can give to wards the venture will be deeply appreciated. If the Lord touches your heart to support this worthy cause, please contact Evangelist Blahyi on Cell No. 06 548 245 to arrange how you can make a contribution to the project. Evangelist Blahyi can also be reached at the following E-Mail Address: firstname.lastname@example.org May the Lord touch your heart and richly bless you for your support.
