Steve and Esther Smith have served the Lord among the Muslim Wolof people of Senegal, West Africa since February of 1997. Over their years of ministry, they have had to take on various roles, even serving as the field director for 5 years, but enjoyed the ministry of church planting and rural development the most. They have four children, Andy, Terri, David and Jeremiah. A recent illness has necessitated a stateside ministry for a season. Nevertheless, Steve is excited and thankful for the opportunity to work with the gifted facilitation team at CIT and to help prepare the next generation of servants taking the Gospel all over the world.
