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: A Wonderful Start to 2021!

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: A Wonderful Start to 2021!What a wonderful start we have had to 2021! Our church attendance continues to grow, and we have seen God’s hand of blessing weekly on our ministries.

Our family had planned a one-night camping trip about two hours away from our city. We had gone about 45 minutes out when our van started having trouble. We had to park on the side of the road while I called our mechanic. He needed to bring us some parts to repair the van. As we waited, two Maasai men came along to see what the trouble was. I began talking to them and was able to lead one of the men to the Lord while we were waiting on the mechanic. I am thankful for this divine appointment!

We were blessed to have Pastor Jim Green and his wife and daughter come to visit us. Pastor Green preached a three-night Family Conference. The attendance at the conference was great and increased each night of the conference. Our people are so hungry to hear sound Bible preaching and teaching. We even had several trust Christ during the conference. Through this conference, our families were blessed and strengthened.

We held our first Kids’ Day of the year. I was a little concerned when the day started out as a gloomy, rainy day. I was unsure of how many children would come out in the weather. We prayed that God would stop the rain; and, miraculously, as the vans started arriving with the children, the rain stopped! There were 274 in attendance, with 24 children trusting Christ as their Saviour that day!

I recently made a visit to Joy’s house, one of our church members who had not attended in some time. Her sister had passed away a couple of days before, and there were several family members at the house. I was able to share some words of comfort and then share with them the greatest news of salvation. The Holy Spirit’s moving was evident as I shared the Gospel with them, and their hearts were very tender. Four of them bowed their heads and trusted Christ as their Saviour.

Please continue to be in prayer for our visas. We will submit them for renewal within the next couple of weeks, and it can take up to two months to receive an answer. This is a matter of much prayer, as many, many missionaries are being forced to leave Tanzania.
