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: Stadium Crusade

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter:  Stadium CrusadeWe are humbled that, for the fourth year, God has allowed us to host the Tanzanian Stadium Crusade. We give God the glory for the 8,650 who attended the crusade. This year for the preaching time, I focused on Romans 6:23 and the gift that God freely gives to all men who will accept. As an illustration, we constructed a massive wooden gift that was carried out to the center field as I preached. As always, we raised the Cross toward the close of the message. What a blessing it was to see 1,370 fill out decision cards denoting they had trusted Christ as their Saviour. We are also thankful for the 31 people who came from two of our supporting churches, Marion Avenue Baptist Church and Gospel Light Baptist Church.

Soccer Sunday

The day after our crusade, we had an incredible day. I am always worried that our church folks will be too tired the next day, but God always gives us strength. Sunday started out by raining, and I thought for sure we would have a low day because of the rain. That morning I was reminded of the story of Elijah and the sacrifice on Mount Carmel. I felt like God was pouring the 12 barrels of water on our big day. He wanted to prove that any victory that day was all because of Him. We praise the Lord for the 1,530 who attended our church and the 74 who trusted Christ as their Saviour. Our goal was 1,000, but God gave the victory.

Mobile Medical Clinic

We praise the Lord for an incredible mobile medical clinic at Faith Baptist Church. We thank Medical Missions Outreach for partnering with us for a great week. We hosted 50 doctors, nurses, and volunteers for a mobile clinic held at our church property. We were able to see over 3,000 people come through the clinic, with 735 trusting Christ as their Saviour. We give God all the glory. We saw many return after this special day and have seen an increase in overall attendance. On one Sunday, we baptized 9, and 7 of those were reached through the clinic. Each year that we do this outreach, we are able to see fruit that remains.


We are excited for the opportunity to return and share with our supporting churches what God has been doing here in Tanzania. We will have the opportunity to report in 24 churches in these few short months. We will be in many states across the U.S., with many churches in California and Arizona. We do have a few new churches we will be visiting. Please pray for traveling mercies.

Project Building Faith

Our church is growing, and ministries are being added; things are happening in Morogoro, Tanzania. In this next phase of our ministry, we are really stepping out by faith to ask God to enable us to build a two-story building on our church property. Right now we have an open-air auditorium, where our Bible college meets, as well as two thatched-roof, open-air classrooms for children, and we have no offices. Staff meetings take place in a thatched-roof little “hut.” This two-story building would serve many purposes, including a place for our Bible college, Sunday school classrooms, offices, a prophet’s chamber for visiting pastors, and we even have made provision for future plans for a TV ministry and printing ministry. We believe this project will cost around $200,000. All of this is so that we may reach more for the cause of Christ in Morogoro, Tanzania. Please pray with us about this project.

Your missionaries to Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
