Jerry was saved at a young age. He surrendered to preach at a tent meeting under the preaching of Tony Hutson. Jerry’s parents answered the call to missions in 1993 and arrived on the field of Tanzania in 1995. While in Africa, Jerry was always involved in the ministry by teaching out in the villages, public schools, Bible Clubs, and Sunday school. He also worked on the evangelistic puppet team that has seen hundreds of people saved. When Jerry was seventeen years old, he surrendered to go back to Tanzania. God’s calling was clear during a sermon at Pastors’ School. Soon after surrendering, he enrolled at Hyles-Anderson College and graduated in 2007. While attending college, he captained a bus route and taught a boys Sunday school class. He also worked at the college for two of the years he was enrolled.

Rachel was born and raised in a Baptist preacher’s home (Dr. Larry Brown). At the age of nine with the help of her mother, she received Christ. As a young person, Rachel surrendered to do whatever God wanted. In February of 2003, her father hired her as the full-time secretary of their church, Marion Avenue Baptist Church. She worked in this position until September of 2005, when she enrolled in college. Jerry and Rachel met at college and began dating. While dating, Rachel was able to visit Tanzania, and after a time of praying and seeking God’s will, she knew that the mission field is what God had in store for her.

Jerry and Rachel were married on July 6, 2007. On November 5, 2010, the Lord blessed them with a son, David Jerry Wyatt; and on June 13, 2012, they were blessed with a second child, Kate Dianne.

Jerry is currently the pastor of Faith Baptist Church Morogoro. He and his wife have served the Lord in this ministry since arriving on the field in 2009, and in 2012 Jerry became pastor. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry with the inception of an orphan home in 2013 and many other new ministries. Pray as God continues to work in this truly needy field of Tanzania.

We are Independent Baptist missionaries to Tanzania, East Africa. Jerry is the pastor of the Faith Baptist Church in Morogoro. Our ministries include church planting, Bible clubs, public school ministries, an orphanage, deaf ministry and evangelistic outreaches. We have been in Tanzania since January of 2009. Please join us in prayer as we do the work that the Lord has called us to do.

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Special Sundays

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter:  Special SundaysSpecial Sundays

We have recently had a series of special Sundays. Our first big day was Good Neighbor Sunday, where we really encouraged our church folks to invite their neighbors and friends. What a great day it was, with 660 in attendance, 118 visitors, 49 salvations, and 7 baptized! The next Sunday was Baby Dedication Sunday. This was a special service, with 8 families bringing their babies to dedicate them to the Lord. Parents’ Sunday was this past Sunday, where we encouraged our church folks who attend faithfully to invite their parents to church. We had over 20 mothers and fathers attend.

Deaf Days

We were not able to hold this special deaf-outreach weekend event at the beginning of the year because of COVID-19. Our special “Deaf Days” started on Saturday with games, food, and a lesson with a Gospel message. We praise the Lord for the 3 who accepted Christ after the preaching. We encouraged those who attended on Saturday to come on Sunday too. Our whole service was tailored to the Deaf Ministry. We had a deaf choir and testimonies from some of the faithful members of our Deaf Ministry. It was a sweet service where our church folks were able to show this ministry some extra love.

Feeding Center

We are excited about the continued construction at Imani Village. The shell of the building is completed, and now we are in the process of doing the plumbing, electrical, and sheetrock for the ceilings. We were recently informed that the ministry that was fully funding the feeding center will no longer be able to continue with support. Please help us pray that God would continue to provide the funds needed to continue this ministry. We know that God is in control and will provide according to His great supply.

Radio Transition

Our biggest prayer request continues to be for our radio station. We have been moving forward to transition the radio from being a separate entity to being a part of our local mission. Please continue to pray that God’s will would be done through this process. There is much red tape involved, and we need divine intervention.

Work Permits

Please begin to pray for our Work Permit renewal process. We have begun preparing for when we renew the first of next year. There have been many missionaries here in Tanzania who have had to leave the country because their renewals were rejected.
