Gizmo and the Super Crew share Jesus with children on “Gizmo on the Go!”
Students in Lamac Elementary School and Cabuyao Elementary School in Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro had the chance to meet Gizmo during the Superbook events last March 23 and 24. More than 200 kids and some of their parents from the Hanunuo Mangyan tribe attended the events.
The program kicked off with a dance contest and “Gizmo Quizmo,” which tested the kids’ knowledge on Math and Science.
They also learned about the story of the young shepherd boy, David, by watching the Superbook episode, “A Giant Adventure.” They discovered that God will give them strength just as He did to David when he fought Goliath.
Eleven-year-old Rizon Leido, who claimed that “A Giant Adventure” is his favorite Superbook episode, said, “David defeated Goliath because God was his defender!”
David’s story inspired not only the kids but the parents as well. Maria Ellesa Leido, a mother who attended the event, recalled how she felt victorious when David defeated Goliath.
“Even though David was small, God’s power was in him. He believed that God gave him the power to defeat his enemy,” she said.
Ellesa also pointed out the importance of knowing God, “We were separated from God because of sin. But because of His love for us, He sent Jesus Christ to save us.”
After watching Superbook, the attendees prayed and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
Following the successful and heartwarming sharing of the Gospel to the Mangyan people, Gizmo brought more joy by dancing to “The Salvation Poem” with them. The program concluded with the kids reciting the “Batang Superbook Promise.”
The children went home with loot bags containing Superbook and Oyayi coloring books, school supplies, and snacks. But most importantly, they had the chance to know and accept Jesus in their lives!
“Superbook really helps a lot in sharing God so that people can have salvation. It helps them not to lose hope,” Ellesa shared.
