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: Humbled by Your Generosity

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Humbled by Your GenerosityYouth Conference

We were thrilled to have a group from Shawnee Baptist Church with Pastor Steve Frost come and visit us. One of the main purposes of their trip was to help us with our Youth Conference. God blessed our conference with over 300 teens and workers. The biggest blessing of the conference came with 60 teenagers trusting Christ as their Saviour. One young man who accepted Christ came with his cooler to sell ice cream to the young people who had begun to gather for the conference. Before the conference started, one of our staff men began to share the Gospel with him. How exciting it was when this young man bowed his head and trusted Christ! Each one of these souls are precious to the Lord. Please pray as we continue to endeavor to follow up on these young people.


Many of you may be aware of the issue that missionaries in Tanzania are facing in obtaining visas. Many missionaries are being rejected. Recently two missionaries with our mission were rejected, but after appealing, they were accepted for another two years. Our visas will be up for renewal in the spring of next year. Would you please begin praying with us that our visas will be renewed without a problem?

Kids’ Day

Several times a year, we have a Kids’ Day on a Saturday. This is like a one-day Vacation Bible School. These Kids’ Days are a tremendous tool to reach new children, and many of them start attending church after one of these days. At our most recent Kids’ Day, we had over 250 kids and adults present, with 26 saved.

Marriage Seminar

On Valentine’s Day, we held our yearly Marriage Seminar. Many couples from our church attended the seminar. Like anywhere in the world, marriages here are under attack, and seminars like this are such a valuable tool to help with keeping these marriages strong. Through food, games, teaching, preaching, and just spending time with each other, everyone went home refreshed and with a renewed love for each other.

Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support. We are humbled each month as we watch God provide for the needs. Many times we never even mention to anyone but God different needs, and we are always amazed as we watch Him provide through the generosity of His people. Thank you.

Your missionaries to Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
