One of the three main things that we do apart from the counseling with girls and the discipleship with men is evangelism in villages. We show the Jesus film, preach the gospel and praying individually over people. We believe it is a very important aspect in seeing systemic redemption come to the foundation of the culture as the kingdom of heaven comes to this earth.
Here is the problem. A study from another ministry showed that after one year only about 1-2% of people who gave their lives to the Lord were still actively living for Jesus. They were not able to find a weekly gathering or attain a Bible and drifted away from a relationship with Jesus.
Incredibly saddened they decided to try to make this one time experience ave more of a lasting impact on the lives of individuals. They started gathering people together shortly after the evangelism meeting and said they would give them a simple $36 solar powered Bible as long as they set up a place to meet weekly to listen to a few chapters and allow for discussion.
After returning a year later they find not 1-2%, but rather over 200% of people attending these audio Bible meetings with a desperate desire to learn more about the life of Jesus and is divine Spirit.
Join us on May 5th as we participate in GiveSTLday. Give STL Day is a 24-hour giving event with local and international impact. More than 790 nonprofit organizations have signed up to participate and will be raising much needed dollars with your help! Our desire is to raise $1,000 for the purchasing and distribution of these solar Bibles at our evangelism meetings. We would be able to buy almost 28 audio bibles with that! We have one matching donor, but are looking for more! If you want to be part and match the donations made on Give STL Day May 5th, email here.
