evangelist sandra nura

The most common junk mail I receive is from folks in Nigeria who say they've got millions to give me if I can just spot them $20,000 or so. But yesterday I got this weird e-mail that I couldn't help but respond to.

From: Evangelist Sandra Nura.


Beloved In Christ,


Calvary greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I am Evangelist Sandra Nura a widow to Late Sheik Nura . I am 61 years old; I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications, my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that I may not live more than six months, because the cancer stage has gotten to a very severe stage.

My late husband was killed during the Gulf war, and during the period of our marriage we had a son who was also killed in a cold blood during the Gulf war. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth. My personal physician told me that I may not live for more than six months and I am so scared about this. So, I now decided to divide part of this wealth, by contributing to the development of evangelism in Africa, America, Europe and Asian Countries.

I selected you after visiting the website for this purpose and prayed over it, I am willing to donate the sum of $6.000,000.00 Million US Dollars to the motherless baby homes, needy, poor, charity homes and widows too. Please note that, this fund is lying in a Security company therefore my lawyer will file an immediate application for the transfer of the money in the name of your ministry. Please, do not reply me if you have the intention of using this fund for personal use other than enhancement of evangelism.

Lastly, I want you to be praying for me as regards my entire life and my health because I have come to find out since my spiritual birth lately that wealth acquisition without Jesus Christ in one's life is vanity upon vanity. If you have to die says the Lord, keep fit and I will give you the crown of life. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you. I await your urgent reply.

Yours in Christ

I replied:

Dear Sandra,

I am intrigued by your letter. I work with kids in the inner-city. Six million dollars is probably more than any of the nonprofits I'm affiliated with would need. But I have been looking for ways to raise funds to provide more opportunities for those less fortunate in my community. In all honesty, though, these fundraising efforts are not for the enhancement of evangelism. But I still wanted to respond to you to learn more about you and your quest.

Yours very truly,


I'll keep you posted. (Check the link above; it makes it all the more peculiar.)
