Honorable Back Ladies and Black Gentlemen of England.
It is the most gratititude that I write these words of mine. I never thought a day will come when I see such headlines from a Black News paper in Britian.
Few years ago, God appeared to me twice in a vision of the night. In this vision I saw myself as Prime Minister at Ten Downing Street. There were other former Prime Minister of Britian in the same room. as I clearly heard the voice of the Almighty God saying to me. " Andy Lumeh, Evry Place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you. - Scripture reference Joshua 1: 3- 7. At another vision before that, I saw myslef in what seem to be the garden of TEN Downing Street. At the British Prime Minister Residence. There was a victory party, where we have just won the election. I was now Prime Minister of Britian. A white man . Butler or the servant at 19 Downing Street was bowind down serving me with a tray in his hand with waht was orange juice, and food since I do not drink.

God is bringing this to pass as son as we can all believe that our time has come as Blackmen and Black women, to rule Briatain. Amen.

God bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and give you peace. in Jesus Christ name. Amen.

The next Prime Ministe of Faith.
