Description:Translation (Htoi Awng) Now, I am going to tell a story and the title of the story is "A tree was a witness". Long time ago, there was an orphan boy in a village. He got some amount of money after he worked hard. In the past, people use coins as their money. So, it was heavy. One day, he wanted to go somewhere very far. He could not take all the money because those were very heavy for him to carry. Then, he decided to let his neighbor who was an old man keep his money. He said, "Grandpa! I am going somewhere really far from here. Can you keep my money while I am not here?" And then he went. After many years, he came back and asked the grandpa about his money. He said, "Grandpa! Can I get back my money which I let you keep?" The grandpa had bad mind and wanted to take those money. He told the boy, "I don't know what you are talking about? When did you give me? Do not ever tell me like that! I never took your money." He did not want to give the money back to the boy. The orphan boy was very sad and went to a judge. He said, "Please, help me! Can you tell the grandpa to give my money back? He denied the fact that I gave my money to him to keep." Then, the judge came and told them to talk about that. The poor boy said that he gave. But the grandpa denied that. So, the judge asked the boy, "Was there a witness when you gave the money?" The poor boy answered, "There was no person, but there was a tree. We made the deal under that tree, and that tree is still there." The judge said, "Then, go and call that tree to come here." The boy said, "How can I take the tree here? The tree is sprouting there. It can't walk." The judge said, "Don't worry! Just call the tree, and it will move." While he was going to call the tree where they gave money under it, the grandpa and the judge were chatting. After a while, the judge asked the grandpa, "Did the kid arrive at the tree?" The grandpa answered inadvertently, "May be, he was driven away by God. He could not reach there yet. That tree is a little bit far away from here." Then, the judge knew right away. The grandpa couldn't lie that the boy really gave him the money under the tree. He was ashamed. The judge said, "You couldn't lie anymore. Did the boy give the money to you or not?" At that moment, the poor boy came back there. Then the judge told, "The witness which is the tree has reached here before you." This is the end of the story. God won't allow to deceive and commit fraud on the others. God can change the bad mindset and make the miracle things. Thanks so much.
