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.
Marion Avenue Baptist Church

Our sending church, Marion Avenue Baptist Church, is the church that my wife grew up in as a child and teenager. This was also the church were my father-in-law pastored for thirty-eight years. The current pastor is Joseph Brown, my brother in-law, who has visited Tanzania on three different occasions. Marion Avenue truly has a heart for missions. Groups from the church have made multiple trips to Tanzania to help us with conferences and special building projects, as well as many other ministry opportunities.

July 2011 – Pastor Larry Brown resigned the pastorate, delving into full-time world evangelism. He is loved and will be missed, but to the glory of God, the pulpit of the Marion Avenue Baptist Church will still be located “under the spout where the glory comes out”!

July 17, 2011 – Joseph Brown, son of Pastor Larry Brown, became the new pastor of the Marion Avenue Baptist Church. Pastor Joseph Brown has a vision and a passion to shepherd the flock, preach the Word, and reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Through these wonderful thirty-eight years, God has led His dear children along. He has blessed in ways innumerable and used this ministry to change thousands of lives. Because of His blessings, the church is continuing to grow and reach Southeast Iowa for the cause of Christ. The buses are still rolling, the Gospel is still being preached, and lives are still being changed. To God be the glory, the pulpit will remain hot, souls will walk the aisles for salvation, and the baptismal waters will continue to be stirred!

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Project Building Faith

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter:  Project Building FaithFurlough

We pray that you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. It was a blessing to spend Christmas with family in the USA. We have traveled many thousands of miles these past few months. We thank the Lord for the very prosperous furlough that He has given us. We had the opportunity to report in 26 churches in the past 4 months. We were also able to visit 3 radio stations while here to continue gaining insight for our station in Morogoro. We praise the Lord for the smooth trip back. Pray that we would have a smooth transition back into the ministry in Tanzania.

Open Doors Stateside

As we have traveled, we are always excited to find people from East Africa who speak Swahili. We have met them in malls, stores, parks, and many other places. They are always thrilled to find someone who can speak Swahili. We have invited them to church, witnessed to many of them, and have seen several trust Christ and come to church.

Another time while eating breakfast in a hotel, I saw a lady and her relative. The Lord pricked my heart to speak to them. After chatting for a while, they told me that they were in town for cancer treatments. I was able to share the Gospel with them, and Dianne bowed her head and trusted Christ as her Saviour.

Project Building Faith

As of right now, we have seen God provide nearly $12,000 for the “Project Building Faith” building project, along with some churches who have committed to giving in the future. We have a long way to go; but we believe the Lord will work, and we know the need is great. We as a family have already started giving and putting money towards this project. Pray for our church family, as this year our Tanzanian church folks will be raising money for the building as well. Help us pray that God would continue to provide in His timing. Our goal is to have $75,000 by groundbreaking.

Montana and Kellie Morrow

Please pray for Montana and Kellie Morrow as they return to the States to finish deputation to return to Tanzania. I had asked them to come and be a part of our staff team while we were in the States on furlough. They have been serving here in Morogoro for over six months. Would you pray that this couple could raise their support quickly? We need their help. They will be working with us in every area of the ministry. Feel free to contact Bro. Montana at 319.360.4155 or via email at

Faith Baptist Church

We praise the Lord for incredible growth in our church this year. We have truly seen God’s hand of blessing. For the year, we have seen the highest average in attendance on Sundays our church has ever seen. Each week we have visitors attend our services. We had a total of 869 first-time visitors for the year of 2018. God also blessed with over 3,000 people trusting Christ as their personal Saviour. Please help us pray as we disciple these new converts and see them grounded in Christ. We are excited to see what God has for His church in 2019. Our theme for the new year is “Pamoja,” which means “Together,” followed with “Knowing, Growing, Going,” and II Peter 3:18 as our theme verse.
