” sir, we have called the absentees and discovered that some of them don’t have tangible reasons for their absence. ” Pastor Eze replied absent-minded.

” That’s not what i asked. I said, why didn’t you bring it to my knowledge that such a thing had taken place. ” Pastor Timothy replied calmly, but his assistant knew too well than to take his calmness for granted.
