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: Christmas at Faith Baptist

Jerry Wyatt III Prayer Letter: Christmas at Faith BaptistMissions Sunday

We recently had our Missions Sunday. Our church folks were very excited to start supporting a Ghanaian pastor as he reaches people for the Gospel. I preached on the importance of getting the Gospel to where we cannot go. Please pray that our people will grasp this important truth. It does not matter where you are; it is important to be involved in missions giving.

Kid’s Playground

We finished our new playground in preparation for the first stage of Building Faith! We truly appreciate Stephen and Jessie Swaffer, sent from Marion Avenue Baptist Church, for coming over to help us with this project. This has already been a great tool to get children excited about coming to church. Every Sunday, scores and scores of children are enjoying this new addition to our church property.

Christmas at Faith Baptist

We started the month of December out with a Christmas Ladies’ Meeting at our church. The auditorium was filled with both our church ladies, as well as many visiting ladies. Twelve ladies chose to put their faith in Jesus Christ at the meeting. We had a variety of Christmas outreaches and events. The children of our church were excited to get matching shirts with our church name and logo on them. Our English Sunday school held its annual Christmas party. The children were very excited to participate in a Christmas play, bringing the Christmas story to life.

Imani Village

Construction continues on Imani Village, and we are excited to be finishing this project in the next month or so. One great blessing of this project has been the opportunity to work with many different contractors. This past month I had the opportunity, on different occasions, to witness to two of them. Each one bowed their head and accepted Christ as their Saviour.

New Year

We praise the Lord for a good year here at Faith Baptist Church. Even though there were many challenges, we never had to miss a service or close our doors. We are asking God for renewed strength and vision as we look forward to a wonderful 2021!


Visas continue to be an ever-increasing challenge here in Tanzania. Many missionaries have had to leave the country. Just yesterday, we submitted the application for visas for Montana and Kellie Morrow, who will be coming to work with us. Please pray that they will be granted their visas. Our visas will be up for renewal in April. Please pray that there will not be obstacles with ours as well.
