Our hearts are full, having just returned back to Tanzania after a 4½-month furlough to the United States. The Lord blessed in ways that we could have never imagined. God’s people were so good to us, and we had wonderful meetings as we traveled. It was good to report back to many of our supporting churches, as well as present our work in a handful of new churches. We had a need for monthly support for the orphanage here, and we are happy to report that while on this furlough, we were able to raise the additional support for that ministry. Also, as we mentioned before, nearly all of the money that was needed to get the radio station started was given. Please pray with us that God will provide the remaining amount needed.
In the month of May, we held a ladies’ meeting in the neighborhood of Msamvu. What a blessing it was to watch as around 200 people gathered under a group of trees for the meeting. We were thrilled to see 8 accept Christ as their personal Saviour.
Last Saturday we held a soul-winning seminar to help better train the people of our church in the area of sharing the Gospel. It blessed my heart, as 40 of our men and women attended. During one part of the seminar, I had everyone divide up into groups of two to “practice.” One of our ladies came up to me afterwards, smiling. She explained to me how she had sat down to practice witnessing to her partner, and the other lady from our church told her that she wasn’t for sure that she had ever accepted Christ into her heart. She was sweetly saved! She was one of two who were saved during this soul-winning seminar!
Many of you may have already heard about our upcoming Tanzanian Stadium Crusade. Our goal is to give the Gospel to a stadium full of Tanzanians. Our church will be hosting a free-admission soccer match between two professional soccer teams. During the halftime, we will give a 25-minute Gospel message. Each person who attends will receive a John and Romans with the Gospel on the back. We will be handing out information cards and asking those who have attended to fill out a card, especially those who have accepted Christ as their Saviour. We will endeavor to follow up on those who attend. Those who have denoted that they have trusted Christ will receive a call within 72 hours and encouraged to start right in their new Christian life by attending the Faith Baptist Church that Sunday. The date is JULY 25, 2015. We strongly beseech you to earnestly be in prayer for this event!
Thank you for your continual prayers and support.
Your representatives to Tanzania,
Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
