Phone bill - continued....

We picked up the printout of the phone calls made and there was one call made from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31.  It was made on Dec. 1st and cost about 350 kwacha ($2.50).  However, the phone was not even connected or working on that day so......    Besides they want to charge us 7000 kwacha for some reason.   Anyway -  we did write a letter and attached copies of the bills, printout, etc. and left it with 'someone' who will figure it out hopefully!!!  :)  
Today, Saturday, we have another funeral of a church member.  Bro. James Mpinganjira passed away last evening from tuberculosis.  We knew him well as he has done some carpentry work, etc. on some of the church buildings for us.   He is a good man and we will miss him.   His death was unexpected.   He got sick and they took him to the hospital where they did tests and determined after 3 or 4 days that he had tuberculosis and would be in the hospital for a couple of weeks.      Jim is with the District Presidency and Branch President visiting Sister Mpinganjira and helping arrange the service which will be at 2:00 p.m. today.   They have just now gone to the hospital to pick up the body.    We had a set of burial clothing so they will dress him.     After the funeral service at the Church he will be taken to his home Village (not too far from here) and the burial will be tomorrow.    I am not sure if we will be helping transport him to the Village or if the family has made arrangements.     The church helped pay for part of the cost of the casket.     
Another busy day!
