Although considered by some as an off the beaten path, Capul Island has been blessed with alluring nature and welcoming people. Days before the event, a town crier, locally known as Bandillo, announced the team’s arrival to the community.

The whole town was delighted to see Gizmo inviting the kids to the town plaza through a motorcade. The colorful caravan included young majorettes, drummer boys, lyre players, and students from Capul Central 1 Elementary School.

The heavy rains did not stop the youngsters from lining up at the Capul Town Plaza, who were all eager to learn, have fun, and meet their favorite character – Gizmo.

They capped-off the day with the singing of The Salvation Poem with Gizmo. Hundreds of sweet little voices filled the plaza as they sang along, prayed, and accepted Jesus in their hearts.

The kids also took home some gifts and enjoyed a simple meal together, prepared by the Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines, the humanitarian arm of CBN Asia.

“The Lord was truly faithful as He stopped the rain exactly when the event was scheduled to begin. It truly was a miracle. [This is] Definitely one of the best Superbook experiences for me. It was a such a blessing to witness Superbook and Gizmo touch the hearts of the children,” expressed Robert John Tan, CBN Asia’s Chief Operating Officer.
