I am having difficulty understanding every word on the messages due to his accent. I live with my parents but I have my own landline. He is not calling to my parents' phone number. The message he left is as follows (as best as I can understand it): "This message is for (my dad).

I look forward to working with you.Take care and may God Bless."
