A Change of Heart

Share This article

10-year-old Pharvin spent a lot of time playing on her own because she couldn’t seem to get along with others, including her parents. “I did not think my parents loved me,” she told CBN. “They bought gifts for my brothers but not for me.” 

Pharvin said after her dad went to work, many days her mom, Sophea, left to play cards and drink wine with friends. “I was afraid of being isolated so I kept going,” said Sophea. “Also, whenever I felt stressed and alone I went to drink and play." 

One day a teacher from an after-school program supported by CBN’s Orphan’s Promise invited Pharvin to attend. “They taught me to dance and sing,” she recalled. “I felt really happy there. Then they taught me about God’s love. Then we watched Superbook.” 

At the end of one Superbook episode, the teacher asked the children if they wanted to pray to become Christians. Pharvin said yes. “Superbook taught me that I am a sinner, but that God loves me! I asked Him to forgive my sins. And I also ask Him to help my mom to stop drinking and playing cards.”  

Pharvin prayed for her family every day. She talked to her Buddhist parents about Superbook and the Bible. Then she invited them to church. “Pharvin invited me to church, and I always said ‘no,’" recalled Sophea. “She kept asking so I started to go. I watched many Superbook episodes, and I learned that God loves me and forgives my sins. Then I decided to believe in Jesus!”   

“Since my wife believed in Jesus, she has changed!” added Pharvin’s dad. “She no longer drinks or plays cards. Now our whole family are Christians.”

“Because of the Superbook, my parents and brothers all know Jesus, just like I do!” declared Pharvin. “Thank you for giving us Superbook!”
