The Wyatt's passion in Tanzania is to preach, teach, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following through with baptism and discipleship.
WELCOME TO THE WYATT'S MISSION SITE
Jerry & Rachel Wyatt III are Independent Baptist missionaries to Tanzania, East Africa. Jerry is the pastor of the Faith Baptist Church in Morogoro. The Wyatts’ ministries include church planting, Bible clubs, public school ministries, an orphanage, deaf ministry and evangelistic outreaches. The Wyatts have been in Tanzania since January of 2009. Please join them in prayer as they do the work that the Lord has called them to do.
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. He also worked on college staff for two of the years he was enrolled. After three and a half years as the youth pastor Jerry became the senior pastor of the Faith Baptist Church Morogoro in 2012.
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. She has happily stood beside Jerry in their work in Tanzania.
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. Andrew Brooks was born on June 2oth 2014. The latest addition is Lauren Rachel, born on August 19th 2016.

What a wonderful kid's Day we had recently with over 600 children and helpers! We were blessed to have the Bechtold family visiting here to minister through music.
Each week, our church has the awesome opportunity to teach Bible in the public schools here in Tanzania. We have seen many young people who have gotten saved as a result of this ministry and are now serving the Lord faithfully in our church.
Calvary's Love Children's Home is a home for orphaned boys. Sponsored by the Calvary Baptist Church in Dundalk, MD and under the ministry of Faith Baptist Church, this home now houses 6 young orphan boys. Our prayer is that these young men will grow up to be mighty servants God.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF TANZANIA
Shortly after achieving independence from Britain in the early 1960s, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964. One-party rule ended in 1995 with the first democratic elections held in the country since the 1970s. Zanzibar's semi-autonomous status and popular opposition led to two contentious elections since 1995, which the ruling party won despite international observers' claims of voting irregularities. The formation of a government of national unity between Zanzibar's two leading parties succeeded in minimizing electoral tension in 2010.
Tanzania is an open country to the gospel with religious freedom. The last survey done of the religious make-up of Tanzania stated that mainland 30% were Christian, 35% were Muslim, and 35% had their own indigenous beliefs. The main language spoken here in Tanzania is Swahili. The total population is close to 50 million people. Almost 50% of the population is under the age of 17. The life expectancy for the average Tanzanian is 61 years old.

We are so thankful God has provided 2 mini vans for the churches ministry. One of the vans is very old and is not very reliable. Please be in prayer for our church in the area transportation.

WHAT PASTORS ARE SAYING
I have had the privilege of traveling to Morogoro, Tanzania on three separate occasions. I am thrilled with what is happening at Faith Baptist Church in Tanzania with the Wyatt Family. God is using this family and church to truly make an eternal impact on Tanzania. I could not be more pleased to be a supporting pastor and partner with the Wyatts and this great work!
Pastor Joseph Brown - Washington, Iowa
Our church has supported the Wyatt family since they first came to Africa. My wife and I had the great pleasure of visiting them in 2012. We have traveled all over the world and Tanzania remains among our favorite memories. Recently our church as well as a few others have partnered in shipping a container full of radio equipment and Scriptures to Tanzania.
