haven't seen this one before......funny as hell though (no pun intended).   

copied straight from the email....enjoy


Dear Friend in Christ,

Greetings in Jesus Lovely name.  I pray that
this letter meet you doing well in Christ. Please
do not be upset  that I am writing you. I felt I
needed to ask for help from other brethren in
Christ when in need.

I am Felix Edionwere a 62 years old Brother
married with wife and three grand children. Our
only son Demi died in a motor accident 4 years
ago and we now have to take care of two of the
children when their mother remarried. I was a
clerk for many years before I loosed my job.
Now I have no job and about to take to farming
in January 2008. I gave my life to Christ in
1990. I visited an office in Aba town in 1989. In
the office there was this nice looking book it was
a New Testament bible left on one of the tables.
I took the bible without the consent of the
owner I stole it. When I gave my life to Christ
He forgive me of all sins including stealing this
little bible. The miracle was that I kept it for
some time and latter started reading it just as
reading a novel. But after some time the Lord
arrested my heart through that little book and I
gave my life to Him. All the while God has given
me the grace to serve Him without going back.
Me and my wife Edugie are members of a little
church with about 15 family shepherds by a
young devoted man of God.

We just only need your help for two bibles. The
once we had before are New Testament bibles
now turn and we are unable to read them due to
reading difficulty having to read small letters. It
is my request and appeal that you help me and
my wife for two Bibles king James or new
international versions. We need giant Print
types due to reading difficulty. May God bless
you as you help us. Also pray about me and my
wife that God would show you how deep we need
the bibles. I have not met you face to face but I
know that God have allowed me to know you
through this means and we need no other help
but bibles. We are leaving for Abudu my home
town here in Edo State in early February to start
farming so we could care for ourselves and
grand children so I urge you to please send the
bibles in airmail insured postage so that we can
receive them some before leaving. Insured
airmail I was told is the safest means to receive
things in our post office. Our postal address is
Felix Edionwere.
P.O. Box 7051, Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.

I shall be very grateful if this request in
granted. I will also keep praying for you.

Yours in Christ,
Felix Edionwere.
P.O. Box 7051, Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.

Apparently the voice of God has finally gotten to them. Instead of giving out money, they're just asking for a bunch of bibles. How...weird.  Tongue

Why would anyone want a King James version?  Ugh.

And he shouldn't be down on himself about stealing a Bible.  It's the most frequently stolen book.

I think they are just fishing for bigger fish. i.e. anyone that sends them two bibles is probably gonna get another email asking for something more substantial.
