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!”
