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: All Is in Vain . . . Unless God Moves In

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter:  All Is in Vain . . . Unless God Moves InNew Church Plant

We were blessed to help start a new church! We were able to ordain Alfred Komanya into the Gospel ministry, and at the end of April, the Faith Baptist Church of Magu had its charter-signing services. This church is in the northern part of the country, many hours from where we are in Morogoro. Please pray for this brand-new church as they begin reaching others for Christ.


We are already seeing fruit from the radio! The first Sunday after going on the air with the station, we had a lady come to church. She said that she had been scanning channels and found our station. She heard the preaching and told her friends, “I have got to find this church.” She came and has been faithful to services and special functions since then. We also had a man get baptized last week who came to our church because of hearing preaching on the radio. Please continue to pray for the final inspection by the TCRA.

Teen Camp

We just finished our teen camp. This was a special camp, held just for the teenagers in our church. We had a great week, and there were many decisions made for Christ. It was encouraging to watch young men step into leadership roles and start to shoulder responsibility. Please continue to pray for the youth of Tanzania and Faith Baptist Church.

Shipment of Bibles

The Liberty Baptist Church in Newport Beach, California, partnered with Bearing Precious Seed to print special-edition copies of John & Romans in Swahili. We had 25,000 of these Bibles printed with a special cover advertising our radio station and 25,000 with a special cover made specifically for our Stadium Crusade. How exciting it was as the truck with these Bibles pulled up to our church and our church people began to unload box after box of these Bibles!

Stadium Crusade

Our 4th Annual Tanzanian Stadium Crusade is less than a month away. We are begging God to give us our biggest year yet. We earnestly ask you to be in prayer for this outreach. The date is July 28. Thousands upon thousands of people will be receiving a clear presentation of the Gospel on this day. Please pray that everything will go smoothly, as the groups travel from the States to sing and to help, the soccer teams come in, Bibles are prepared, and all the many preparations come together.

Medical Outreach

Following directly on the heels of our crusade, we will be holding our mobile medical clinic again. This will be a week in which people around our city are invited to our church for free medical help. While there, they also receive a one-on-one presentation of the Gospel. We are expecting over 3,000 people to pass through the clinic during this week.

We cannot stress enough our need for prayer during these two outreaches (crusade and medical outreach). We desperately need God’s hand of blessing. We have done all we can to prepare, but unless God moves in, it will all be in vain. Please pray that the hearts of people will be receptive to the Gospel.


At the end of August, we will be returning home for a furlough. We have cut our furlough as short as possible in order to get back to the work here in Tanzania. We are excited to have Montana and Kellie Morrow here to help run the ministry until we return. Please pray for us as we prepare for this trip back to the States.

Your missionaries to Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
