The Orange Leader
A local church will welcome two people with a history of helping their fellow man this weekend.
Trinity Baptist Church of Orange will host Missionaries Steve and Tara Smith on Sunday, April 14. Steve was raised in Orange and graduated from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School, Lamar University and the Southwestern Baptist Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. Tara is from Fort Worth, and graduated from Lamar University in Beaumont. Steve served on the staff at the Little Cypress Baptist Church in Orange and the First Baptist Church in Lewisville, Texas.
They were appointed as Southern Baptist missionaries and have served with the International Mission Board since 1990. They began their work in the Central African Country of Burundi and will share their experiences during the program on Sunday. Many years and much of their work have been among the European people of Reunion Island, France and Germany.
There will be a fellowship at 9:30 a.m., Sunday, in the foyer at the entrance of the church. Refreshments will be served. The program will start at 9:45 a.m., prior to the 11 a.m. church services.
