Their goals include developing local training seminars, correspondence Bible school, and Swahili radio ministry. Burundi was added to their appointment in 1998; he became superintendent in 2006. The Smoaks’ relocation to western Tanzania will enable them to travel by land to Burundi to strengthen the Burundian church and conduct ministerial training seminars.
