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 and Rachel Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Special Sundays

Jerry and Rachel Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Special SundaysSpecial Meetings

What a wonderful week we had in September with a group visiting us from Pleasantville Baptist Church! On Thursday, we had a Men’s Meeting, with over 100 men in attendance. As is the case in most parts of the world, it is harder to get men to attend events than it is to get ladies and children. The following day, we held a Ladies’ Meeting, with over 200 in attendance. Saturday was Kids’ Day, and our church property was overflowing with over 400 excited kids and helpers for this one-day Vacation Bible School. The Sunday following these events, we had Family Day at church. Many visitors from the week’s events came back for this special Sunday, and many souls were saved.

Special Sundays

In October, we had three special Sundays back to back. We started off with Good Neighbor Sunday. Many of our church members brought friends and neighbors. Baptism Sunday was a wonderful day as well. I began preaching about baptism the Sunday before and spent all day preaching on it that Sunday. We saw 14 people follow the Lord in baptism. What a great year of baptisms we have had! We finished the special days with Baby Dedication Sunday. It was a sweet and warm service, as 16 families brought their babies to be dedicated to the Lord.

Salvation Story

Our son David led a man to the Lord while out on soul winning. After he finished talking to this man, David came and talked to me about how many of the people he talks to promise to come to church but never show up. This man he had just led to the Lord had also promised to come. What a joy it was that Sunday when he did come! He told me, “I promised your son I would come, so I had to come.” What a blessing it is to see our children with a heart to serve the Lord!

Crusade 2024

Please pray for our 2024 Stadium Crusade. This will be the 10-year anniversary of our crusade, and the Lord has laid it on my heart to hold the crusade in the capital city of Dar es Salaam. This is a huge undertaking, and we are praying for God’s provision and guidance every step of the way. Will you join us in prayer for this monumental event? Please pray about the booking of the National Stadium and the Tanzanian team’s commitment to play this match. We already have thousands of John and Romans on-site that are specialized with a crusade-themed cover. We have been having our young people staple decision cards to the John and Romans in preparation for the crusade. Many other preparations have been made.

Prayer Requests

As always, we need prayer for red tape with paperwork. Please be in prayer for the paperwork for our radio-station transition. This has been a very long and drawn-out process. Please pray that this can be resolved quickly. In addition to some red tape with our radio, we also have some mission paperwork that we need to see God work through.

Serving the people of Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
