CBN Asia Launches Superbook Cebuano, Empowers Churches to Reach More People for Jesus through Social Media

With hopes of empowering ministers and touching the lives of young Cebuanos, CBN Asia flew to the heart of Cebu and launched Superbook Cebuano, and conducted social media evangelism workshop in Robinsons Galleria Cebu, last October 7.

Bannering the title, “Growing Your Ministry through Social Media,” former CBN Asia Digital Media Manager Sheena Mangunay shared the best practices in maximizing social media platforms and tools to reach more audience and share the gospel online.

The workshop inspired 23 dedicated participants from Victory churches in Cebu to unveil the aspirations of their ministries, understand their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

They revisited their ministry’s vision, mission, core values, goals, and the audience they aim to reach. Ultimately, they received tools that can help them craft a customized social media growth strategy.

Clouie Lastima, one of the participants, couldn’t help but express her heartfelt gratitude for the invaluable experience she gained during the workshop.

“This is one for the books. It’s been an incredible privilege to hear directly from Miss Sheena. Her insights and strategies, especially on using social media to serve the Lord and our community, have been incredibly inspiring,” she said.

After a morning filled with insights followed an exciting afternoon for Cebuano kids—the Superbook Cebuano Grand Launch.

For the first time, children and their parents watched the Superbook episode, “A Giant Adventure” in Bisaya! Witnessing the kids engage in the story, now translated into their native language, was truly heartwarming.

Laughter filled the hall as they took on the challenge of Gizmo’s Talent Show, where they showcased their TikTok dance moves.

The fun experience didn’t end there; they played games, answered trivia questions, took home Superbook merchandise, and sang “The Salvation Poem” in Cebuano, too!

The journey extended to the Children’s Haven Orphanage in Cordova the following day, October 8.

Gizmo on the Go!’s Super Crew and everyone’s beloved robot friend, Gizmo, sparked hope and joy in the lives of children.

The kids, along with their teachers, danced and watched an exciting film. They also engaged in quizzes, challenged themselves, and delved into a mind-boggling, scientific question-and-answer session.

The Superbook team also visited the kids in Ganaan Christian Academy in Lapu-Lapu City. The day was filled with activities, and the children were thrilled to meet Gizmo and take home Superbook merchandise.

CBN Asia continues to empower ministries, inspire children, and share God’s love with Filipino communities and beyond.

Cebuano Kids Watched Superbook in Bisaya for the First Time!

For the first time ever, children in Cebu got to watch Superbook in Bisaya when they attended the Superbook Cebuano Grand Launch in Robinsons Galleria Cebu, last October 7.

The groundbreaking launch happened just in time for the celebration of the well-loved animated Bible series’ 12 years of broadcast in the Philippines.

Superbook is a good way for parents to introduce the Bible to their children,” shared Pastor Rodel and Joy who attended the event with their 9-year-old daughter, Anya.

Like most kids, Anya enjoys fun and visually-rich storytelling. That is why her parents encouraged her to watch Superbook when she was just 3 years old.

With the initiative of translating Superbook into the Cebuano language, more children in the Visayas region will be able to learn more about the Bible.

Icko Gonzalez, CBN Asia’s Manager for Superbook, shared how the idea of translating the show to Cebuano came to life.

“During our visits to this region, we’ve observed the strong desire among the children and their families for a deeper connection with God through Superbook. Their requests to have Superbook episodes translated in Bisaya touched us to make this happen,” he said.

After the grand launch in Robinsons Galleria Cebu, the Super Crew conducted outreach events in Cordova and Lapu-Lapu City. The venues were filled with joyous and contagious cheers from the children and their families!

Cebuano kids showed their dancing skills during Gizmo’s Talent Show as well as their knowledge of the Bible during Gizmo’s Lab. And for the first time ever, they got to watch the Bisayan version of the Superbook episode, “A Giant Adventure!”

Through the episode, the kids were reminded that talents come from God and they were inspired to use it for Him.

After watching Superbook, the children were amazed to meet their robot friend, Gizmo, and everyone sang and danced to the Cebuano version of “The Salvation Poem”! It truly is a memorable experience for all who attended the Superbook Cebuano Grand Launch.

Icko is excited to bring the Superbook experience to even more children across all Bisaya-speaking communities. He shared, “The future is bright, and we’re eager to share the transformative power of Superbook with them all.”

With the unwavering support of generous donors and partners, Superbook is taking a step closer to the vision of imparting life lessons, teaching moral values, and igniting the joy of learning the Bible in the hearts of Filipino children and their families.

5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from Superbook Season 3 Characters

Are you looking for entertaining Bible stories filled with lessons for you and your family? Superbook’s got your back!

Superbook is CBN Asia’s animated series that follows Chris, Joy, and Gizmo’s time-travel adventures as they witness the stories of people in the Bible.

Don’t miss the premiere of Superbook Season 3 Tagalog episodes on the Batang Superbook YouTube Channel starting July 8!

Read more to get a glimpse of 5 of the many life lessons in store for you!

1. Ruth’s love and loyalty to family

For Ruth, family always goes first. Despite everything she has gone through, Ruth chose to stay and care for her mother-in-law Naomi (Ruth 1:1 – 18).

Like Ruth, be loving and faithful to your family. One way to show love for them is to lead them to Jesus. You can express loyalty to them by staying with them in their most challenging times or comforting them whenever they feel sad.

2. Naaman’s humility

Naaman is the commander of the Syrian army. Even if he is a high-ranking official, he cannot find a cure for his leprosy. He showed humility by listening to his Israelite servant girl, telling Naaman to ask help from a prophet from their town (2 Kings 5:1 – 13).

Having a humble and teachable heart encourages others to express their opinions and suggestions, too.

3. Obedience of Eliezer, Abraham’s Servant

Eliezer followed his master’s order even though it was not easy. He trusted God and prayed for His guidance. Through the Lord’s leading, Eliezer was able to accomplish the task (Genesis 24:15 – 27).

Obeying God and relying on Him will lead us to His good and perfect will for us.

4. David’s merciful heart

Forgiving someone who hurt us is often easier said than done. David experienced this when he was being chased and threatened by King Saul. When he saw an opportunity to get even with the king, David chose to show mercy instead of seeking revenge (1 Samuel 24:1 – 7).

God forgives His children when they turn from their sinful ways and return to Him. May this truth remind us to extend mercy and kindness to people who have wronged us.

5. Daniel’s unshakeable trust in the Lord

Daniel believed that God would do something amazing in their hopeless situation. Though the task was difficult, he chose to seek God instead of worrying. Daniel prayed for the Lord to reveal to him what King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was and help him interpret its meaning (Daniel 2:1 – 20).

You can trust God in every situation, even when all hope seems lost. Rely on Him and believe in His mighty power.

Superbook Shares the Message of Jesus to the Children of Lipa, Batangas

Gizmo once again embarked on an extraordinary adventure to spread the love of Jesus to children everywhere!

Recently, the lovable robot from Superbook visited Lipa, Batangas. The “Gizmo on the GO!” event prepared by the Superbook team ignited the hearts of Filipino families and young fans—through an unforgettable experience filled with games, activities, and the powerful message of the gospel.

Among the eager attendees was Ernest Buenviaje, an energetic 10-year-old who considers himself a certified Batang Superbook.

“I enjoy watching Superbook because it teaches valuable moral lessons that we can pass on to future generations as we grow older,” Ernest shared.

Just like Ernest, a lot of children had fun as they dived into a world of Superbook wonder in different stations inside the activity area. Aside from entertainment, the activities prepared for the kids taught them valuable lessons.

The Creation Station, a hub of creativity, delighted them with Superbook-themed coloring pages that came to life with their vivid imaginations. The Arcade Station experience was a blast as they engaged in Superbook games. The Photobooth Station captured the joyous moments of children as they proudly showcased their artwork from the Creation Station.

The highlight of the day was an exciting game called “Gizmo’s Lab,” where Ernest emerged as the winner! When asked about his secret, he humbly shared, “I prayed before playing the game, like how I pray before taking tests in school.”

It wasn’t just about games and fun. Superbook left a lasting impact on the young hearts as they gathered to watch the lesson-filled episode, “The Good Samaritan.” Through this story, they learned the powerful message of kindness and helping others, no matter their differences.

The crowd erupted with joy as Gizmo showed up on stage!

They sang and danced to “The Salvation Poem,” creating an atmosphere of celebration and praise. Gizmo’s heartfelt invitation to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior touched the children’s hearts and many responded with a resounding “Yes!”

As a token of appreciation, the children received Superbook gift bags, filled with treasures that would continue to inspire their faith journey. The bag included bread, chips, juice, a copy of “Book of Hope” and Superbook stickers.

And of course, who could miss the chance to capture a memorable photo with their beloved robot friend, Gizmo?

Once again, Superbook’sGizmo on the GO!” brought smiles, laughter, and life-changing moments to children and families. It’s a testament to the incredible impact Superbook has in sharing the love of Jesus and teaching valuable life lessons.

Mom Shares How Superbook Helped 2 Generations of Their Family Learn More about God

What is one thing from your childhood that you want to pass on to your kids?

For SuperMom Rosabelita, it’s the Bible lessons she got from watching Superbook back in the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Rosabelita loved watching Superbook Classic and The Flying House when she was younger. Now, it’s her daughter Paula’s turn to join the fun Bible adventures of Chris, Joy, and Gizmo!

She doesn’t want Paula to just watch Superbook for fun without learning lessons from it. So, she decided to go on a Superbook journey once more–this time with her daughter!

The mother-and-daughter duo went to participate in a Gizmo on the GO! event in Robinsons Gapan, Nueva Ecija, last April. “Gizmo on the GO!” is a fun-filled event where kids can try different activities, play games, watch Superbook episodes, take a selfie with their favorite robot friend Gizmo, and more!

SuperMom Rosabelita proudly cheered for her daughter as Paula answered every question during Gizmo’s Lab, a quiz bee part of the show, with ease. She ended up being the winner, even taking home special prizes from Gizmo!

Rosabelita shared that Superbook’s visuals appeal to kids—encouraging them to learn about biblical lessons and good values. In fact, she noticed some similarities between Chris’ experience in the Superbook episode, He is Risen with that of her daughter.

“At first, Chris had a different attitude toward his mom. But after he went to Jesus’ time and then back to the present, his attitude toward his mother changed. That also happened with Paula,” she said, testifying on how Superbook helps her teach good values to her daughter.

The SuperMom also gave advice to other parents, “I hope that they will make time to watch Superbook together with their children, so they can explain life lessons from the show.”

Watching Superbook not only helps children understand Bible lessons better, but it also gives opportunities for parents and kids to bond. SuperParents can also use the Superbook Family Discussion Guide to help their learning time be more meaningful and productive!

Kids in Bukidnon Share Meaningful Takeaways from Superbook’s “The Good Samaritan” Episode

“Let us love our neighbors and help them the best way we can!”

This was the lesson learned by the children in Can-ayan Integrated School in Malaybalay, Bukidnon, when they watched the Superbook episode, “The Good Samaritan” as part of the Gizmo on the GO! event last January.

All the kids got so hooked on watching the episode and found themselves relating to the characters while taking home powerful lessons from the story!

When asked about her favorite scene in “The Good Samaritan” episode, grade 5 student Kyline Silmaro shared, “I like the part when the Samaritan helped the wounded man on the road.”

After watching the episode, Kyline learned that we should be kind and loving to others because this is what God desires for all His children.

“The priest in the parable did not help the wounded man. But the Samaritan even took him to an inn and paid for his stay!”

Kyline realized that the Samaritan’s kindness mirrored what Jesus did for us. “He helped us by dying on the Cross and was raised back to life so our sins will be forgiven.”

Grade 6 student Dominick Binahon felt the pain of the wounded man on the road as a familiar situation came across his mind.

“I felt a bit sad because I remembered the time when no one helped me when I was hungry and had no money to buy food,” Dominick recounted. “Good thing my best friend was there to help me get by the day.”

Through Superbook’s “The Good Samaritan” episode, Dominick learned to show love, kindness, and respect to every person he will meet.

Anjalina Esoy was also able to relate to the story of the “The Good Samaritan.”

“I helped my younger sibling who was being bullied. We confronted the bully and asked him to apologize to my younger sibling. I also encouraged my sibling to forgive the child who bullied him,” Anjalina shared.

She continued, “I learned from Superbook’s ‘The Good Samaritan’ that we should love, respect, and help each other.”

Many children are learning good values and getting closer to God through Superbook!

Caviteña Mom Recommends Superbook to Parents with Techy Children

From street games such as piko, tumbang preso, and luksong tinik, children are now spending more time on computer games, mobile apps, and television.

Mina Paragoyo is a mom who witnessed that change in hobbies and entertainment in today’s new generation.

Now that she has kids, she said that it has really been challenging to limit the use of technology in children. Some schools require the use of laptops. Communication with a distant loved one requires an Internet connection. Even shows and movies are watched online.

Joaquin, Mina’s 6-year-old first-born, is a part of this generation and he genuinely enjoys playing games on his gadgets for long hours. Despite that, Mina always finds time to remind Joaquin to watch Superbook.

“Kids nowadays have different interests. But I make sure that I include Superbook into my son’s screen time because I see that he enjoys and learns from it, too.” Mina says.

The Caviteño mom added, “Every time Joaquin watches Superbook, I notice that his attitude improved. He sometimes asks why the bad guys do bad things, and what’s good about Superbook is that they are really clear in explaining.”

“Since the kids cannot read at an early age, Superbook is a big help. Stories in an animated format help kids visualize the Bible at a level that they will understand,” she said.

After finding out that Gizmo will be in their school event in Molino 4, Bacoor Cavite, Mina said that Joaquin felt really excited that he even helped in preparing before they leave to see Gizmo.

When asked about his favorite Superbook episode, Joaquin said that he liked Moses’ story the most. “Moses did the right thing,” he said.

Despite his shy attitude, extreme joy flooded Joaquin’s eyes when he was in line to take a photo with Gizmo. Even after his picture was taken, his attention was fixed on our robot friend, showing that he knew Gizmo from the Superbook episodes he watched.

Mina started showing the Superbook episodes to Joaquin as early as he was 4 years old. She said parents should encourage their children to watch Superbook and left this message for all the parents who have kids that are spending too much time on gadgets and the Internet:

“The media has all kinds of violent and unpleasant videos that might expose your child to the wrong outlook in life. Superbook breaks that cycle and helps remind the kids about good values and the Word of God. Because of activities like Gizmo on the GO!, I was reminded that I should let my kids watch Superbook more often.”

Superbook Helps Parents Raise Godly Children

Are you looking for fun, meaningful, and safe activities for your little ones? Superbook brings you that and so much more!

With its exciting Bible adventures, children can learn biblical values even at a young age, helping parents to raise children who know God and His Word.

That is exactly what was affirmed as Superbook’s beloved robot, Gizmo, and the Super Crew visited the Super Kids and Super Parents from Ferndale Villas, Quezon City, on Gizmo on the Go last October.

Marcelo Lu, one of the board of directors of Ferndale Villas, and also one of the parents present in the event, mentioned how Superbook provided not only entertainment, but has also helped his children grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Superbook has been instrumental in the spiritual growth of my two children,” he said.

In more ways than one, Superbook has helped parents teach kids about Jesus and important life lessons that they will bring with them as they grow older.

“It has so many stories of characters in the Bible, even other characters who we are not familiar with,” Marcelo added.

True enough, as the Superbook episode “A Giant Adventure” was shown, kids in Ferndale Villas had so much fun watching and learning Biblical values from David’s life.

To make the day extra special, Gizmo danced and sang The Salvation Poem with all the children and prayed with them as they received Jesus in their hearts.

 

It was a fun and meaningful Saturday with Gizmo and the Super Crew! Just like Marcelo and his children, many more lives were touched by Superbook.

“We’re very grateful that Superbook was here. We know that it can spread the Good News and influence not only kids, but most especially adults who are not yet familiar with Superbook. This will have a very big impact as they grow older. Hopefully, in the future, when these kids become parents, Superbook can also be introduced to the next generation,” he added.

Gizmo on the Go continues to spread the love of Jesus to different places in the Philippines. Your kids can join the fun, too! Watch out for Gizmo on the Go’s next stop!

Operation Blessing, Superbook, and Coney Reyes Brought Smiles to Young Pasigueños through Holiday of Hope and Cheer

A day full of fun and cheer!

Operation Blessing’s Holiday of Hope and Cheer visited the children of Pasig Elementary School last December 7.

The kids enjoyed a lot of fun and exciting activities!

Their robot friend Gizmo was also present to make the children even happier. They danced, and sang, and played with him, making the room filled with laughter and joy.

Highlighting the spirit of giving, the Batang Superbook Team gave the children exciting gifts. They received it with smile on their faces.

While filling the children’s hearts with lessons from fun stories, their tummy was also filled with free lunch!

Apart from the gifts, laughter, and cheer, the young Pasigueños received the message of hope as the team led them to a prayer—where they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

Isn’t it fulfilling when children are taught about the real meaning of Christmas in a creative and fun way?

Superbook Makes Life-Changing Impact on a Young Girl and Her Teacher

Like many children, 11-year-old Czerina Adaya is heavily influenced by what she sees and hears on TV. Thankfully, watching Superbook inspires her to be obedient, polite, and God-loving.

Superbook taught me to obey my parents, to pray every day, and to avoid saying bad words,” says Czerina, who discovered Superbook through YouTube and a Bible study.

The grade 6 student loves the show so much that she could not contain her excitement when she joined Superbook’s Gizmo on the Go event at Robinsons General Trias Mall last week.

Czerina and all the certified Batang Superbook sang, danced, prayed, and played exciting games! They were all thrilled to meet the Super Crew and their favorite robot friend, Gizmo.

To Czerina, the part she enjoyed most was Gizmo Lab, where they were quizzed about their favorite subjects. She said it was an amazing experience as it was her first time on stage.

The kid is grateful that she continues to discover more about Jesus and His saving love in a fun way through Superbook and Gizmo on the Go. As she watches the show, Czerina also prays that her family would also experience the joy she found in Jesus.

“I know Jesus is my Lord and Savior, and I pray that He will also save my entire family,” Czerina shared.

She and her friends were accompanied by their Sunday school teacher, Melanie Luna from Jesus Is Lord Church, in General Trias, Cavite.

According to her teacher Melanie, watching Superbook is highly recommended by their church pastor because not only does it promote good values, but it also teaches biblical principles in an interactive and enjoyable way!

Seeing the positive impact Superbook has on her students, teacher Melanie encourages parents and teachers to let their children watch Superbook.

She hopes that instead of spending much time playing online games, more kids will be inspired to watch the show that helps with values formation. Teacher Melanie also hopes that through Superbook, God will continue to touch the hearts of both the young and the old.

“I pray that God will continue to bless the kids with strength, wisdom, and excellence, and that He will continue to help us parents and teachers in guiding our children’s spiritual walk. Even though we, too, are struggling, I pray that we will not give up,” she said.
