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: Building Faith

Jerry and Rachel Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Building FaithMarriage Seminar

On Valentine’s Day, we hosted a Marriage Seminar, with 18 couples in attendance. We played games, enjoyed refreshments, and cherished the fellowship of each other. Most importantly, every couple was strengthened by messages from God’s Word. We praise the Lord for the strong families He has blessed our church with.

Building Faith

The excitement in our church was palpable on January 28, as we broke ground for the second stage of our building project. God’s hand of blessing has consistently been upon our church and ministry, and we stand in awe as we witness His advancement of the church. This new building will include much-needed Sunday school classrooms, offices, restrooms, a nursery, and a kitchen. Please pray for a smooth and safe building process.

Salvation Story

Our church continues to witness people placing their trust in Christ each week through various outreaches and soul-winning efforts. One remarkable salvation story unfolded while I was purchasing roses for my wife for Valentine’s Day. In our city, one of the few places to buy flowers is where caskets are also sold. The Lord impressed upon my heart the need to share the Gospel with the two men who were selling flowers and caskets. Both men bowed their heads, surrounded by caskets, and asked Jesus to save them.

Back-to-School Sunday

The new school year here begins in January, so we organized a Back-to-School Sunday. We welcomed many first-time visitors the week preceding the big day as parents enrolled their children for this special Sunday. We had many come back the following Sunday as well for the special day. One of our young boys, who attends regularly, was thrilled when his mother joined him at church for the first time. We had visited him at his home the previous week, extending an invitation to his mother. The following week, his father came as well. He was beaming when he walked into the church gate, telling me that both his mom and dad had come. They have continued to come faithfully. Please pray for their spiritual growth.

Discipleship Sunday

On this special Sunday, we aim to encourage new converts and church members who have not yet begun our discipleship course to begin now. We’ve had many complete the program and pray that this year we will see more participants than ever.

Tanzanian Stadium Crusade 2024

Due to renovations on both large stadiums in Dar es Salaam, the originally planned crusade had to be postponed. We are now rescheduling this significant event for 2025. Please continue to pray for the success of this outreach. This year, we will be hosting our crusade here in Morogoro, striving to reach as many as possible with the Gospel.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for our upcoming camp and our Easter services. Also, pray for the smooth renewal of our visas. We are continuing to seek divine intervention for the paperwork involved in our radio ministry and our mission in the country.

Your representatives to Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
