Recently, 6-year-old Hom-Dang started attending a Sunday School class at a Christian Church near his home in Thailand. There’s a big reason why he keeps coming back: Superbook. His favourite episode so far is the story of Abraham and Isaac.
“I saw when the man was about to kill his son, and God stopped him!” said Hom-Dang excitedly. “God said ‘do not touch the boy. It’s just a test.’”
94% of the people of Thailand are Buddhists, including Hom-Dang’s family.
The boy’s father doesn’t mind his son attending church, though. In fact, he walks him there and drops him off every Sunday.
“I’m not against him going,” said dad. “I know if my son goes to church and has something to hold on to, that is a good thing.”
As he attends, the young boy is learning more about Jesus and the Bible. His teacher, Miss Tariga, told CBN that Hom-Dang has been very open to the Gospel.
“I love Superbook so much!”
“One day,” Tariga said, “We were talking about Jesus, and I asked Hom-Dang ‘Would you like be in Jesus family?’ He said he was ready.”
“In my prayer,” reports Hom-Dang, “I said I wanted Jesus to come into my heart. I prayed to be a Christian kid.”
And Miss Tariga said that he is taking the message of Superbook home to his parents.
“He told me,” said Tariga, “that he went home one day and said ‘Mama, our house has no Jesus. But Jesus is at my teacher’s house and at church.’”
“Sometimes he says ‘Mom, Jesus is real you know! You must have faith!’ said the boy’s mother. “He always invites us to church on Sunday.”
Meanwhile, Hom-Dang’s parents are beginning to attend the Superbook classes too.
“When they bring their kids, some of the adults sit in and join the class! It’s not just the cartoon, they stay for the Bible lesson too!” said Miss Tariga. “I’d like to thank you for Superbook. You produce the best lessons for children.”
“I love my teacher, and I love Superbook so much!” added the smiling child.
