From Animation to Transformation: Superbook Leads Kids to Jesus

How can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? (Romans 10:14)

Within the vibrant communities and the quiet corners of the world, stories of faith and transformation emerge. At the heart of one such story is Kushi, a 10-year-old girl whose journey of faith has touched the lives of many around her, proving that even the youngest among us can be mighty prayer warriors.

Kushi’s journey with God began in an after-school program sponsored by Orphan’s Promise, where the stories of CBN Animation’s Superbook inspired her to place faith in Christ. It was here, amidst friends and mentors, that Kushi discovered the power of prayer. “Superbook and the teachers here taught me to believe in God and pray for everyone,” Kushi shares with a bright smile.

Moved by the Bible episodes she watched, Kushi began to pray at home with her parents. It wasn’t long before her entire family was drawn into the journey, learning about Jesus Christ and making the decision to follow Him. “Kushi used to come home and tell us about the Superbook stories. We learned that Jesus said, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’”, says Shivratari, Kushi’s mother. “I slowly developed faith in God and started meditating on the Word of God. This gave me peace of mind. My husband and I finally decided to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.”

Kushi’s faith didn't stop there. She began to pray for her neighbors, her community—and witnessed miraculous answers. From helping a neighbor conceive after years of waiting for a child to seeing her own family blessed with a new home through a government housing program, Kushi’s prayers were a testament to her inspirational faith.

Today, Kushi dreams of becoming a Gospel singer, using her voice to spread the Word of God. “I enjoy playing piano for God’s glory, and I love worshipping Jesus Christ,” she says, her eyes sparkling with excitement.

Through Superbook, children are introduced to the Gospel in a relatable and engaging way. With over 2 billion views on YouTube and over 1 million decisions to follow Jesus through the app alone, Superbook is a powerful tool for sharing God’s love.

Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network, calls Superbook “the most effective evangelistic tool developed by CBN in over 60 years of ministry.” The reach and impact are undeniable, touching lives across the globe, just like Kushi’s.

Our partners play a crucial role in this mission, enabling us to bring the incredible stories of the Bible to children everywhere. Together, we are sowing seeds of faith that will grow and flourish, transforming lives and communities in the process.

It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it (Isaiah 55:11). Kushi’s story is a living testament to this promise, a reminder of the powerful journey of faith that begins with experiencing the word of God and the story of Jesus.

Inspired by an Animated Bible Story

14-year-old, Ju Ju, from Myanmar was walking across a bridge with a friend when two men attacked them. “They grabbed our shirts from behind and told us to kneel,” Ju Ju recalled. “I tried to run away, but one guy showed me his knife and said, ‘Sit down or I’ll kill you.’”   

As the men decided what to do with the girls, Ju Ju had a desperate thought. “I thought they would sell us to sex traffickers. I thought about jumping off the bridge even though I might die.”     

At that moment she remembered a CBN Superbook episode she had recently watched about Daniel. “In the Superbook story, God protected Daniel in the lion’s den. I prayed, ‘God, protect me. I don’t want to die.’ I did not stop praying.”
Ju Ju was a Buddhist. A friend had invited her to an after-school program supported by CBN’s Orphan’s Promise. While there she watched other Superbook episodes. As she crouched on the bridge, she wondered if God would deliver them like he had saved Daniel. Then one of the men turned and spoke to her. “He looked at me and told the other man to release us! He said we were too young and innocent. The other man agreed to let us go!”  

The next day, Ju Ju told her teacher what happened and asked if she could pray to become a Christian. “I almost died, but Jesus saved me from that dangerous situation. He is always with His children. I want Him to be near me all the time!” she said.

Ju Ju’s mom has also started praying to Jesus. And her younger siblings now go to Sunday School to watch Superbook too. “Superbook continues to help us to know God more,” she added. “I am so happy that I am His child. Thank you for bringing Superbook to us!”

To Fit In, the Gym was Her Best Friend

Haley Erickson had long lived by the motto: “eat clean, train mean,” but it eventually took over her life. “I was mentally enslaved at that point,” she recalled. Haley had never been happy with her body, or her weight, something she picked up from her mom. “I saw my mom always dieting and talking about what her body looked like and needing to change her body. So as a young girl that really looked up to my mom, I thought that I needed to look a certain way to also be loved and accepted by others.”

In high school, she started eating healthy, dieting, and exercising constantly. “Although I tried to play it off as just being super healthy, and loving to exercise and eat healthy, I knew in my heart that this is not healthy. This is an obsession,” she said. “My life revolved around food and exercise and what my body looked like. Every time I looked at myself in the mirror, there was always something that needed to be better. Whether it was fixing my body or something about my face, it was never good enough.” 

Although she was considered underweight, she was healthy for the most part. In her sophomore year of college, Haley overheard some of her sorority sisters talking about going to the beach for spring break and needing to lose weight. “That seed was planted of, oh I need to lose weight too,” she recalled. “I know subconsciously it was, I just wanted to fit in with these girls and be loved and accepted, and I wasn't even going on the trip with them, but I just wanted to belong.”

Now, she took her obsession of non-stop weight training and counting calories to a new, unhealthy level. This led to many physical and mental health issues. “I was very lonely and sad and felt very isolated,” she said. “The gym was my best friend because I didn't have those solid relationships. Also, it really took a toll on my health physically, but I kept pushing past the pain.”

During Christmas break of her junior year, Haley slipped on black ice and injured her leg. It wasn’t broken, but doctors told her she couldn’t exercise for weeks. The now 20-year-old became desperate. “I begged God to please show me the purpose of my life because everything I was living for was gone. I didn't know why I was here, or what the purpose of my life was, and I honestly wasn't sure if I wanted to live anymore.” 

Weeks later, as soon as the pain subsided, Haley was back in the gym. This time she met then 85-year-old Mary Jane. The two hit it off and Mary Jane invited Haley to her home the next day. When the conversation turned to families, Haley shared a picture of hers, explaining she grew up in a Christian home. She didn’t know her new friend was a follower of Jesus. “I asked her, 'are you a Christian?' She cried and I knew that something was missing. I thought, this is why she’s here,” recalled Mary-Jane. Until then, Haley considered herself to be a Christian. Haley said, “Right then and there I heard the Holy Spirit's very clear conviction almost as if it was an audible voice, and the Lord just said, ‘you poser.’ I was claiming to being a follower of Christ because I had gone to church when I was younger, but I definitely did not know Jesus.”

Mary Jane explained God’s plan of salvation through Christ. “I started with John 3:16 and I put her name in it,” she spoke. Haley accepted Christ into her life that day and began to grow in her faith. However, she would continue to obsess over her body image for another three years. Then, at 24, she completely surrendered it to Jesus. “I said, ‘Lord, I don't want anything to do with this anymore. I ask for your healing and that you would show me what it looks like to eat in a way that is glorifying to you.’ Finally, surrendering the food and exercise, I really just let God walk me through this healing journey. The Lord led me to really cling to truth instead of what I thought was my identity and what made me worthy,” she said.

Now a nutrition coach, personal trainer, and public speaker, Haley still likes to stay fit, but says she sees herself through God’s eyes. “The Lord really helped me renew my mind,” she stated. “With seeing who He says I am instead of what I thought made me worthy.”

A Parent’s Heartache Turns to Joy

Not long after she was born, Kanak developed a slight swelling in her neck. By the time she was three, it had not stopped growing. 

Kanak’s mother said, “We took her to many hospitals. They said the swelling in this gland could eventually kill her if it wasn’t removed. It hurts her and makes her cry, and they said eventually it could swell so much that she would suffocate and die. My husband and I are so worried, but we do not have enough money for surgery.”

Kanak's mother had to take care of her around the clock, so she couldn’t work in the fields. She took Kanak out of school and feared she would get hurt every time she saw her playing. It even hurt for her to eat or drink.

“I love her so much,” said Kanak’s mother. “She is my little princess, but I cannot do anything to help her.”

When Kanak's parents heard about Operation Blessing’s Life Changing Surgeries Program, they reached out to us. Operation Blessing paid for her surgery.

“I am so happy and relieved,” said Kanak’s mother. “Now, she can eat and drink properly. She plays with her friends, and goes to school, and I have no fear she will get hurt. I am working in the fields again and earning a living. Thank you so much for your help. You saved my princess' life.”
