But the most troubling result of playing video games was his thoughts on suicide. Minh Viet said, "I cried. I want to commit suicide." When asked how this is done, he said he learned how to do it from his gaming. "In the video games, they jump off the roof."
Ngocanh Le, Minh Viet's mother, says she was disturbed when her son told her this. "He says that I will commit suicide. He cannot do what adults expect him to do. He feels he is a failure."
As a Christian, Ngocanh knew that prayer and the Word of God could solve her son's problem. But she also knew that Minh Viet needed something that would catch his attention, just like the video games.
That is why Ngocanh is so thankful Superbook has come to Vietnam and is translated in her own language.
Ngocanh shared, "He loves Superbook very much. He has shifted from video games to Superbook. He understands more about the Bible. And sometimes, he says to me he feels he's very sinful. But God has saved him. He was touched by God. And in school, he got very much improved."
In Vietnam, 7,000 children are learning the Word of God through Superbook. CBN Vietnam is praying that more churches will use the Superbook curriculum so that children who have been deceived by the devil like Minh Viet can be saved.
Minh Viet even tells others about how Superbook saved him: "I have a friend in Saigon who is addicted to video games. I told him to stop playing games and watch Superbook instead."
