[INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC]

AMIA THROUGH INTERPRETER: When I was five or six years old,

I watched Superbook for the first time.

NARRATOR: 10-year-old Amia found a hero

in her favorite cartoon series.

AMIA THROUGH INTERPRETER: I'm thinking all the time,

why can't I become like Joy?

She believes in God and she is good and kind.

I begin to believe and I started to pray.

MOM THROUGH INTERPRETER: This cartoon

changed the life of my daughter.

The story of Esther when Joy makes friends with children

that others have rejected.

It had a strong impact on Amia.

AMIA THROUGH INTERPRETER: During the cartoon

books is a girl named Bonnie who uses a wheelchair.

I thought, if Joy can be so kind and brave, so can I.

NARRATOR: So Amia befriended a child

at school who had been bullied by classmates.

AMIA THROUGH INTERPRETER: I found out

that she was a nice person and I realized that all people need

to be given a chance.

NARRATOR: Amia is one of thousands

of children across Albania whose lives have been changed

through CBN's Superbook.

Albanian missionary Rachel Byler has witnessed the influence

of Superbook firsthand.

We love the show Superbook in Albania,

because wherever we go-- and this is true.

Wherever we go, the kids all know the song.

And it's the song of salvation.

[CHILDREN SINGING]

MOM THROUGH INTERPRETER: This cartoon

is very important for our country

because so many children are in families who don't know Jesus.

But now they know Gizmo, Joy, and Chris

and they hear about God through them.

AMIA THROUGH INTERPRETER: Now I talk to my friends about Jesus.

Thank you to everyone who made the wonderful Superbook.
