Soutou sou zafè tansyon sa a!

Gen yon doktè Indyen ki té dim ké sé sèl, tafya, ak strès ki bay tansyon épi li té dim ké tout bagay bonDyé kréyé épi lòm pran ni épi yo métél nan bwat pou bay moun manjé yo sé pwazon ké nap manjé.

Bagay yo mété pou konsèvé yo a sé pwazon, si nou pa mouri bonè sé mirak bonDyé.
