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: Masai Bible Study and Teen Camp

Jerry and Rachel Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Masai Bible Study and Teen CampMaasai Bible Study

At the beginning of the year, I began a Maasai Bible Study. We are currently meeting under a tree; but each week, men attend, and many have been saved. We have seen a total of 83 Maasai men trust Christ since we started this Bible study. One week, I was teaching on baptism. I was explaining that one can get saved anywhere, but to be baptized, you must be somewhere with deep water. I told them that at our church, we have a baptistery. One of the Maasai warriors raised his hand and said, “Well, can we go there now?! I want to be baptized now!” I quickly flipped to the passage of the Ethiopian Eunuch and told them that they only must first believe. He and two others confirmed that they had already put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ, and they were ready to be baptized right then! After the Bible study finished, we drove across town to our church. What a joy it was to baptize these three men in the middle of the week because they wanted to follow the commandment of the Lord right away!

Teen Camp

Teen Camp was an incredible experience, with many of our teenagers in attendance, including a considerable number from our English Ministry. The camp was an opportunity for the teenagers to connect, learn, and grow in their faith. During the camp, we witnessed several young people making life-changing decisions for Christ. It was amazing to see the teenagers come together to worship, pray, and learn from the Bible, while enjoying fun activities such as swimming, competitions, and games. The impact of Teen Camp will undoubtedly be felt for many years to come as we continue to see the fruits of the seeds planted during this week. Scan the code below to see a photo of camp!


Easter is always a special time for our church. Each year, we have an English Easter service for the English-speaking community, followed by our Swahili service afterwards. What a blessing it was to celebrate the risen Saviour together!

Special Days

Please be in prayer for the many different outreaches and special days that will be taking place this summer. We have two different medical weeks, Insurance Sunday, and our annual Stadium Crusade, as well as several other big days. We need God’s hand of blessing on these events!

Serving the people of Tanzania,

Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
