Gizmo on the Go: A Dream Come True for the Kids in Laguna

Many Filipinos’ childhood memories include Superbook. Originally shown in the 1980s as “Superbook Classic,” a new and improved version of the Bible cartoon series, “Superbook Reimagined” premiered in 2013.

The kids’ favorite TV show featured Chris and Joy on their Bible adventures. They were able to better understand the stories of the Bible, thanks to these figures! But Gizmo, the adorable and humorous robot pal of Chris and Joy, was one of the characters who truly resonated with the young audience.

Because of this, the children were overjoyed and excited when Gizmo made a trip to Canlubang, Laguna last June 16-17, 2022, for Gizmo on the Go!

Gizmo on the Go is an event where Gizmo goes to different places to bring fun and exciting games and activities to kids and, most importantly, to tell them about Jesus.

The 12-year-old Mara Oruga is one of the kids who felt very excited to meet the Superbook team.

When Mara was younger, she started watching Superbook with her family.

“We turn on the TV early in the morning to watch Superbook. We learn valuable life lessons and Bible stories,” she shared.

Mara and her friends from Canlubang, Laguna, enjoyed showing off their skills, playing Gizmo’s Lab, and watching the Superbook episode, “Joseph and the Pharaoh’s Dream.”

She said, “Like Joseph, I have learned to be gracious and forgiving.”

She especially liked the part where Joseph forgave his brothers, “Even though Joseph was made a high-level official, he didn’t use his position to get back at his brothers.”

After learning about the Bible, it was finally time for their long-awaited meeting with Gizmo!

When the kids saw their favorite robot friend, they cheered loudly!

Gizmo invited the kids to dance “The Salvation Poem,” and they were encouraged to pray and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

That day, more than 100 kids decided to follow God. They went home happy and holding a lootbag filled with Superbook goodies. Truly a dream come true for all the certified Batang Superbook!

Where will Gizmo go next?

Kapampangan Mom Says Superbook Helps her Daughter Learn Good Values

Daren Dela Cruz saw the excitement in the eyes of her daughter Dea after hearing that they finally have an opportunity to meet Superbook’s beloved robot friend, Gizmo, in-person.

As a 10-year-old kid who is an avid fan of CBN Asia’s animated series for children, Dea was only used to seeing Gizmo, Joy, and Chris on YouTube. Daren knew that her daughter would be thrilled to attend the event!

True enough, it was a joy to behold when she accompanied Dea to Superbook’s Gizmo on the Go caravan at Robinson’s Place Angeles, Pampanga, last June 5.

Daren said that Superbook is a great help in teaching Dea godly values. Watching an episode per day teaches her kid how to pray and be strong in life.

Not only do both of them find Superbook fun and exciting, but they are also thankful how each episode gives Dea a better understanding of the Bible.

While attending Gizmo on the Go at Robinson’s Angeles, Dea had so much fun playing Superbook games including “Escape to Egypt” and “Harvest Rush.” She was so thrilled to take a picture with her robot friend, Gizmo!

It was truly a fun day not just for the kids but also for their parents. The crowd was filled with both kids and their families who received Superbook gifts as they joined the games and showcased their talents on stage.

It was a remarkable day for the children and adults who all discovered the character of God—their source of strength and confidence.

Like Dea, do you also want to meet Gizmo and the rest of the Super Crew?

Gizmo on the Go will visit more places across the country!

“Gizmo on the Go” Caravan Brings Jesus Closer to Mangyan Kids

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.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

You know better than anyone how your child’s life has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although many kids are remarkably resilient, some are still struggling to adjust with the changes.

This is natural. The routine that once made them a sense of control and freedom have been erased. Classrooms have become computer screens, playgrounds were closed, and their friendships were put on pause.

It’s understandable that they might feel irritable, frustrated, or even sad sometimes.

Wondering how you can support your child’s mental health? Here are 3 tips:

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

1. Talk to your child

Children feel big emotions that they don’t always have the words for.

So it’s best to ask and help them identify how they feel about the current situation. Validate their emotions. Explain why they can’t go out. Ask if they have concerns or questions then answer in a truthful, calm way.

Reassure them that you are always there whenever they need someone to talk to.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

2. Encourage healthy habits

Kids can feel and do better during this challenging time if they get enough sleep, eat healthy meals, and exercise regularly.

That’s why it’s important to re-establish your family’s daily routine—including your child’s online classes, household chores, and relaxation.

Encourage activities that boost their mood, such as watching child-friendly shows like Superbook.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3. Help them develop a sound mind

Everyone—including your child—is prone to stress, cabin fever, and moments of fear.

Help them develop a sound mind and find comfort in God by teaching them how to pray.

Superbook opened its Kids Prayer Line to help kids pray!

5 Life Lesson We can Learn from the Story of Esther

A beauty like no other turned a simple Jewish girl from being an ordinary citizen to being the queen of an entire nation! But there is something more about her than what meets the eye—she possessed a courage that helped save her entire race from annihilation.

Here are five lessons you can learn from the story of Esther:

  1. You Are Where You Are for A Reason

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_1

God led Esther’s steps and used her as an instrument to save the Jewish people from being wiped out.

Esther became the Queen of Persia after King Xerxes’ wife, Queen Vashti, was deposed. Among all the beautiful women in the empire, Esther’s beauty and personality stood out. The king was so delighted in her that she was declared queen! Upon the request of her cousin, Mordecai, she kept her nationality a secret and later on revealed it to save her people from the impending danger Haman had planned.

God has a purpose for your life, and He allows things to happen for a reason. Like Queen Esther, God may have brought you where you are for a special purpose. Maybe you are in a workplace filled with workmates who need to hear about Jesus. Or in a campus surrounded by students who need the Lord in their life. Maybe you’re the only Christian in your family who God will use so your loved ones could hear about Him. If you find yourself in a position like Queen Esther, remember her story. Who knows? God may have placed you there for such a time as this.

  1. You Can Run to God in Times of Trouble

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_2

When Queen Esther learned about Haman’s evil plan toward the Jews, she asked Mordecai to gather all the Jews in Susa to fast with her for three days and nights. Fasting is a spiritual discipline that Christians do. We fast to acknowledge our dependence on God and focus on Him.

Esther knew that the first thing we should do is to run to do God. Only He can help us face and win life’s biggest battles.

  1. Have Courage

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_3

During the time of Queen Esther, it was against the law to approach the king without being summoned. But even if it meant risking her life, Esther went to see the king. In Esther 4:16, she bravely said, “And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.”

With her faith in God and her people standing with hers in prayer, Esther took the most difficult decision of her life, faced the king, and saw God’s deliverance.

  1. Pride and Hatred Lead to Destruction

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_4

Haman’s anger was aroused when Mordecai chose not to bow down to him. Because of this, he decided to kill all the Jews. Haman asked for the king’s approval to issue a decree that would have all the Jews killed. Before something tragic happens, Queen Esther had already approached the king and planned a way to stop their annihilation. In the end, the Jews were saved, and Haman was executed.

  1. God is Sovereign

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_5

The Jews may have feared for their lives when they learned of Haman’s evil plan, but God proved that He is sovereign overall. God used Queen Esther to stop Haman’s plans. She invited Haman for a banquet with the king and exposed His evil plans of destroying the Jews. When the king learned about this, He was angered! He ordered the execution of Haman.

God is with us through difficult times. Always remember that He is actively working behind the scenes and His plans will always prevail in our lives.

May we face our obstacles like Queen Esther—fearless and with hearts full of faith. Watch and learn from her story. Get your “Esther—For Such A Time as This” Superbook DVD here. You may also get the entire Superbook Season 2 DVD set here.
