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: Soccer Sunday and Tanzanian Stadium Crusade

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Soccer Sunday and Tanzanian Stadium CrusadeBenjamin’s Story

We have arrived back in the States for a short visit. We have had a wonderful time reconnecting with family. While at a park, Rachel noticed a young teen boy, whom she recognized as potentially being from Africa. She spoke with him, and he was from Burundi. To our surprise, he spoke Swahili. Rachel called me over, and I was able to witness to him. After a few questions, it was evident that he was religious but was relying on his works for salvation. Right there at the park, I was able to lead Benjamin to the Lord in Swahili. What a blessing it was to be able to minister in Swahili, even though we were 8,000 miles away from home!

Soccer Sunday

We praise the Lord for a wonderful Soccer Sunday this year. This Sunday is always our biggest Sunday service of the year. We did not know what the turnout would be because of the current pandemic, but we were blessed when the Sunday arrived and there were 960 in church, with 35 trusting Christ.

Tanzanian Stadium Crusade

Every year we have a team from a supporting church come to help with our crusade. Because of all the travel restrictions, the team from Calvary Baptist Church had their tickets canceled just weeks before they were to travel. There were many obstacles, but we praise the Lord that the team was able to come and participate in the crusade. Again, because of all the restrictions this year, we were praying that God would allow us to hold the event. We did have to take extra precautions, as well as change the event to a weekday. God was in control the whole time, and He truly worked this year. We saw 5,089 come to the event. After the preaching of the Gospel, we had 651 fill out decision cards, denoting that they had trusted Christ as Saviour. Our website contains exciting videos for both the Tanzanian Stadium Crusade, as well as Soccer Sunday. We encourage you to check those out!

Radio Transition

Our biggest prayer request right now is for our radio station. We are moving forward to transition the radio from being a separate entity to being a part of our local mission. Please pray that God’s will would be done through this process. There is much red tape involved, and we need divine intervention.
