After some confusion and struggling with the e-Sword for Android import feature I finally figured it out and here are the correct steps to import modules from Bible Support or any other third party site offering e-Sword modules.

Note: e-Sword for Android uses the same module file formats that are used on the Apple/Mac versions of e-Sword. The file formats are shown below:

Android/Apple/MAC file format
Bible (bbli)
Commentary (cmti)
Dictionary (dcti)
Bible Reading Plan (brpi).
Devotional (devi)
Reference Library (refi)
Topic File (topi)
Lexicon (lexi)
Import steps:


Step 1: On your Android device open the web browser and navigate to biblesupport.com
Step 2: You will need to sign into Bible Support using your user name and password.
Step 3: After signing in, navigate to the module or modules you want to add to e-Sword for Android.
Step 4: Download the modules as you would on to a PC they will download into your Android Download folder. 
Step 5: Close the browser on your Android device and Open e-Sword on your Android device
Step 6: At the top left of the e-Sword for Android screen you will see three horizontal lines tap the lines to open the e-Sword for Android menu

Step 7: Scroll down the menu until you see Import in the menu list and tap it this will open the Android download folder

Step 8: The download folder will show the module or modules you downloaded from Bible Support. Tap the files to install them. 
Step 9: Return to e-Sword for Android and you will able to use the downloaded modules.

The above steps only work for downloading modules from third party sites such as Bible Support, if you have modules you have made yourself you will need to upload them to the cloud using Google Drive, One Drive or any other cloud drive. Once they have been uploaded you can repeat the steps above just navigate to the cloud drive instead of Bible Support.

If you have any e-Sword for Windows modules that are not in file formats listed above must be converted to the Apple/Mac file format before being uploaded to a cloud drive. Windows modules have file extensions that end in the letter "x" as shown below:

e-Sword versions 9 and up for Windows
Bible (bblx)
Commentary (cmtx)
Dictionary (dctx)
Bible Reading Plan (brpx)
Devotional (devx)
Topic (topx)
Harmony File (harx)
Maps/Graphics (mapx)
