IN SOME WAYS, E-Tech Missions – a nonprofit ministry that provides audio Bibles to unengaged, unreached people groups – began with the death of a friend.
Jon Moody, former Arkansas Baptist and president and founder of E-Tech Missions, was serving with the International Mission Board (IMB) in Africa when he befriended a woman named Baraka. Moody knew in order to understand the gospel, Baraka needed to hear it in her own language. So Moody made plans to bring back an audio version of the Bible in Baraka’s language when he returned from furlough in the United States. But just few days after he left for the U.S., Baraka died.
Her death spurred Moody to make sure others like Baraka could hear the gospel in their own languages before it was too late. Thus, he returned to the U.S. in 2012 and began E-Tech Missions.
