Mey Savann, the only Cambodian Buddhist monk who lives and practices in Missouri, works Saturday on the Cambodian alphabet inside the Wat Angkor Cambodian Buddhist Temple in Hallsville. Savann moved to Hallsville in October 2005 after learning that the Cambodian Buddhist community was in need of a spiritual leader.
