End to End Program Engages New Believers in the Scriptures
Why a Ghanaian woman gave up her own family to gain eternity
Esi* gave her life to Christ when she saw the JESUS film in her small village in Ghana. She knew from that day forward her life would be different.
“I was born and raised as a Muslim,” she explains. “My decision to follow Jesus affected my family. My prospective husband has declined marrying me, and my parents have disowned me.”
Undaunted, Esi joined an audio Scripture listening group as part of American Bible Society’s End-to-End program. She wanted to know God better through his Word, and after listening to the entire program she received a Bible of her own to read and study! God’s Word has transformed Esi’s life.
“My life before joining the audio Scripture group was a life of depression and exclusion,” she says. “I never saw anything good in life. Ever since I received this Bible, I have been strengthened and I know I shall overcome these challenges. The Bible is my only source of hope.”
Because of the support of American Bible Society’s financial partners, Esi and others are learning how to live and love God through the End-to-End discipleship efforts.
The End to End initiative is a three-step program that includes:
- Showing the JESUS film,
- Organizing new and existing believers into audio Scripture listening groups,
- Presenting the Bible to members of the listening groups who have heard a majority of the New Testament, so they can use the Bible for daily Scripture engagement and ongoing discipleship.
This effort is proving very successful in moving people step-by-step into a relationship with God in India and 12 different countries in Africa. So far, End-to-End has placed God’s Word into the hands and hearts of 318,112 people and helped plant many new churches.
