Superbook Blog – November 2018
Venita grew up in a Buddhist household in Indonesia. Her mum, Lili, was Christian but didn’t practice her faith.
“We lived with my mother in law and I didn’t want to have a conflict with her or my husband over religion,” Lili told CBN.
So Venita never learned about her mother’s background and didn’t learn much about her father and grandmother’s Buddhist beliefs either.
“My parents never talked about God,” said Venita.
But Venita was curious when, one Sunday, her mum started going to church. Lili told the kids to “stay home” and that she would be home soon. Venita wondered what was up!
“I didn’t know what church looked like. I couldn’t even imagine it,” recalled Venita.
The next Sunday, 12-year-old Venita asked if she could go to church with her mum. That’s when she watched CBN’s Superbook for the first time.
“When I watched the story of Moses, I learned that God has great POWER. He can split the sea and helped all of the suffering people to escape!”
At the end of that episode, Venita’s teacher told the class that Jesus died for their sins and invited Venita to pray to become a Christian. Venita prayed that day and surrendered her life to Jesus.
“Before I heard about Jesus, I didn’t know that He could save me! But he did! “Jesus has changed me and made me a better person.”
Venita then invited her older sister to church and she prayed to become a Christian too.
“I am now praying every night for my dad and my brother and grandma, so they can know about Jesus and become Christians too!” said Venita. “Thank you very much Superbook for teaching me about Him.”
“I am now praying every night for my dad and my brother and grandma, so they can know about Jesus and become Christians too!”
