SOUNDBITE (Khmer) 66 YEAR-OLD GRANDFATHER OF THE HOLY BOY, YOM UN SAYING:
"By what I have observed the holy boy did not say much except saying take it and you will be recovered. After he touched the things put there by the patients, then he walked on them and they become holy things and patients use them for their treatment."

"I can eat more, sleep well and I feel strong again now after I used the water and balm from the holy boy. Yesterday I could hardly walk here from the boat when I came."
PEOPLE CARRY THE TRADITIONAL MEDICINE AWAY
SOUNDBITE (Khmer) 68 YEAR-OLD CHEA GNIN SAYING:
"My wife got better after she just used the holy water from the boy. It is unbelievable that the closed cap bottle of water is so powerful and even more than traditional medicine. There was a monk here a couple of days earlier. He just used half a bottle of the holy water, he became well and walked back to his place. Because of this reality that is why many people believe and come here for treatment."
