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.

Tired of Unanswered Prayers

9-year-old Seyha first heard about the Gospel watching a CBN’s Superbook cartoon at a church near his home in Cambodia.

“I was playing near the church. The pastor waved to me and invited me to come into the building with some other kids. I wondered why so many kids that I knew were there.”  

That day Seyha told us he watched the Superbook episode about David and Goliath. “Goliath swung his sword at David,” he said. “But David slid under him and threw a stone at his forehead. Goliath fell down and David cut him with the sword! I love David because he strong and brave!"

Seyha told us he’d grown up in a traditional Buddhist family. “My grandmother said if I burned incense and prayed that I would receive what I ask for. But I never received anything. So, I did not like to go there anymore.” 

He said after he watched Superbook he decided to pray to become a Christian. “After I believed in Jesus, I was so happy, because I know if I have faith in God, I will be strong just like David.”

This past year during COVID Seyha has had to be strong, expecially when there was no food to eat. “In the morning I went to the rice pot but there was nothing to eat,” he said. “So I asked Grandma, ‘What do we have to eat?' And she said, 'I am sorry child, there is no food for breakfast or lunch.’”

When CBN’s Orphan’s Promise heard about their situation, we gave the family food packs to help them manage. Now that the Church program has re-opened, Seyha took his brother Piseth to watch Superbook. Piseth prayed to become a Christian and now their Grandma goes to church with the boys too!  

“Thank you to all the donors who gave us food and helped us know Jesus through Superbook,” said Seyha with a big smile.

Forgiving Sexual Predator Brought Healing

Alicia recalls, “I said, 'I don't want to do this and they forced me to get an abortion.' And even on that table, it felt like a part of me was gone. That I died.” For years, Alicia Nicolas was violated by the person who was supposed to protect her…her father. It started when she was five.

Alicia remembers, “I found my dad at the edge of my bed, molesting me. And I didn't know what to do as a child. And I was scared because the first thing that came out of his mouth was he covered my mouth. And he said, ‘you tell anybody, I'm gonna hurt you.’”

Every day for nine years the molestation continued. At one point, Alicia told her mother who said it was her fault. Ironically, they went to church as a family, where her shame grew even worse.

Alicia says, “I remember repenting in the church and asking God for forgiveness because I'm having sex with my father. I would literally just shower every day and just try to scrape myself off with everything that he was always putting on me. And when I saw myself in the mirror, I still saw myself full of sin. Sometimes I couldn't even see myself in the mirror.”

Then at 14, she became pregnant with her father’s baby. He forced her to have an abortion. Alicia shares, “I just wanted a father to love me. I would get thoughts of suicide. I would get thoughts of like, slicing my wrist, slicing my throat, throwing myself out of moving cars or throwing myself out of a moving bus. I hated myself every day.”

Eventually abandoned by her parents at 15, Alicia would carry her shame for years to come. She would live for years drinking and addicted to ecstasy, a cycle she could only end after she overdosed at 20 years old after getting in a car accident with friends.

Alicia recalls, “I'm thinking in the car like, 'okay, God. You know, this life that I've been living, it's been against you. Just let me live this once because you owe me this much.' God saved me that day.”

Although Alicia stopped using drugs she continued drinking, trying to drown out the painful memories of her childhood and the demonic voices telling her to kill herself. She also delved into many religions searching for God and for love, but none of them filled the void in her heart. Then at 25, she was introduced to Santeria. She was taking part in a blood baptism when she called on God again.

Alicia shares, “I started praying. I said, 'I'm so sorry, Jesus. I'm so sorry. God, I'm sorry I'm doing this. I'm so sorry. Please forgive me that I'm doing this and I'm doing this against you.' I did not think that I was worthy enough for Him to answer me. God is a God of peace. God is God of love. And I didn't feel that, I still felt that anxiety. I still felt those suicidal thoughts.”

Alicia left Virginia for Miami where she quickly fell into the party scene. She became an alcoholic where she went from drinking wine to bottles of hard liquor. Then, a childhood friend, who was a Christian, invited Alicia to church for Easter Sunday.

Alicia remembers, “The song was playing are you overwhelmed by your sin? And he says, 'Jesus is calling.' So, I remember I was shaking like a leaf and I was like, God showed me my life. And I was like, 'okay, God, all I ask for you today is to take bottle away from me.’ In the moment where I told God to take this bottle away from me, I felt delivered. I felt this weight off of me.”

Alicia stopped partying and drinking and started praying…for a husband.

Alicia shares, “And I said, ‘God, if you can send me someone that’s gonna love me for me. And God, can you send me someone funny because these guys here, are dry. They don’t know how to make me laugh and I need to laugh.’”

Five months later, in May 2017, Alicia ordered an Uber to go to a job interview. The driver, Jon, who happened to be a professional comedian immediately made her laugh. As they started dating, the new couple also began reading the bible together. Alicia says that’s when her healing journey began.

Alicia says, “The Lord started showing me who I was, and He started showing me my identity. And I had to face the person of my past that I did not want to face. I had to face the molestation. I had to face the rape. And brick by brick, the wall’s gonna start coming down.”

One day, while watching a series about the Bible on the internet, Alicia repented and fully surrendered her life to God. Alicia remembers, “And I said, ‘Lord, forgive me for everything that I've done against you.’ I said it in that moment, but I continued to say it even afterward.”

In November later that year, Alicia got baptized and also married Jon. Alicia says, “My husband would always put sticky notes with scriptures on the mirror for me. This is who God says you are. The way those memories of the past disappeared was when my husband would read the word over me while we'd be in prayer.”

It was then she called her father … and forgave him. Alicia shares, “I said, 'Dad, I forgive everything that you've done to me.’ And he started weeping and he said, ‘I'm sorry for everything that I did to you.’ I didn't have to carry the burden anymore of what happened to me.”

Alicia loves her new life with Jon and their family. Alicia has a ministry called, Prepare the Way, where she ministers to women who have been sexually abused or trafficked. She tells them about a God who can mend any broken area of their lives and give them a new identity.

Alicia says, “Jesus is the one who saved me, the one who restored me, the one who redeemed me, and the one who showed me the Father's love that I never knew. So, if He could do that to me, He can do that for you.”
