The End to End project has given birth to a Church at Irasa Community in Ekiti State, even as 34 new Ministries have joined as Partners.
The Church, which meets in an open space under a tree, is made up of converts from the End to End Bible listening group who gave their lives to Christ after watching the Jesus film and began listening to the audio Bible. Before now, there was no church in the community. One of the converts, Dennis Abi, a farmer, who spoke through an interpreter said, “It looked unreal when the programme was

first announced, but it has become awesome. The programme is helping me grow steadily spiritually. I am convinced that if Jesus comes today, I will go to heaven with him. I had long desired the Word of God to no avail until I met Evangelist Iyanuoluwa Durogbola [one of our End to End Partners] who brought the Jesus film and the audio Bible in our language to us. Since then, my life has taken a new turn. Please keep this programme running.”
At Ijesha Isu, another community in Ekiti State, the Pastor of Miracle Baptist Church, Pastor Paul Adigun shared how End to End saved him from constant pain and embarrassment. “Until End to End came to our community, members of my small congregation had no Bibles of their own except the Church Secretary and me. This caused me constant pain and embarrassment as I kept preaching to a congregation that had no Bible for further study. Each time I mentioned Bible passages during sermons and Bible studies, they would be looking at me as they had no Bibles to refer to. I thank The Bible Society of Nigeria who brought Jesus film to our community. My members who watched the film and gave their lives to Christ received Bibles from The Bible Society of Nigeria. It has been a great relief to me,” he told The Bible Society team.

A member of the Church, Kemi Oladaye who was a beneficiary and was filled with joy on receiving her first copy of the Bible said, “We used to borrow Bible to read as we had none and could not afford to buy either, but now I can sleep and wake up with my own Bible and can read it anytime. When I watched the Jesus film and saw how he was beaten, I cried. I found it difficult to believe that an innocent man who did no wrong laid down his life for others who deserved to die. I pray to God to give me the courage to lay down my own life, if possible, so that people around me could be saved. I thank The Bible Society of Nigeria for giving me a Bible.”
Meanwhile, 34 new Ministries have signed up as partners for the End to End project. They were all trained for three days in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State after which they were given 20 projectors, Jesus films in different languages and proclaimers. We have plans to get more partners this year so that the programme can extend to other parts of the country.
