REPORTER: On the outskirts of Guatemala City,

Alioto is known as the poorest slum in all of Central America.

But at the grade school there, a new Superbook curriculum

is bringing hope to children like Veronica.

Like her parents, Veronica is a Christian.

INTERPRETER: I feel it is important to me, my mom and dad

teach me a lot of things about the Bible.

REPORTER: Her dad Raphael sells fruit,

pushing a worn-out tricycle through the streets

of Guatemala City.

Sometimes Veronica's mom helps him.

Each month they earn $250.

They were barely getting by when Raphael got sick.

INTERPRETER: I started to feel pain all through my body.

I had a terrible headache and pain in my bones.

I spent three days laying in my bed.

I felt so alone, and I asked God, what can I do?

I couldn't stand to see my husband suffering,

but I didn't even have enough money to write one bill.

REPORTER: Around that time, Veronica

watched a Superbook episode that taught her

about prayer and trusting God.

INTERPRETER: I prayed for my family

and asked God to help us.

It worries me that my parents don't have any money.

REPORTER: God answered Veronica's prayer.

First, her father fully recovered.

Then we got Raphael set up with a bigger, better cart,

so he can sell twice as much every day.

INTERPRETER: I thank God for this help.

This cart is so pretty, and so big.

I can give very good service to my clients now.

And because of this, my income has risen a lot.

REPORTER: Veronica and her family

say the blessing began with a single episode of Superbook.

INTERPRETER: That one episode help her to grow spiritually.

Now she prays more, reads the Bible, and talks to her friends

about God.

So many good things happened after I watched Superbook.

It taught me to have more faith.

I prayed for my dad.

Now he feels better and we have food.
