PARTNER WITH US!

 

We could not do what we do if it were not for a host of churches and individuals standing behind us and partnering with us financially. The opportunities here are endless, and we need your help! Would you prayerfully consider if God would have you come along beside us and invest in the work here?

CURRENT NEEDS

Below are a few projects for which we are currently praying for the Lord's provision. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us for the completion of one of these projects? We can accept donations via PayPal or through our mission agency FBMI.

ONGOING EXPENSES FOR RADIO

With the launch of our new radio station, we will incur additional monthly expenses. We are in need of some partners to help us with these expenses. Whether a monthly donation or one-time gift, your support would be greatly appreciated.

SUNDAY SCHOOL & OFFICE BUILDINGS

We are in desperate need of buildings for both our offices as well as our Sunday School. The Sunday School building would also double as classrooms for Faith Baptist College. If you would like to invest in this project, please follow the link below or contact us for more information.

CHURCH BUS/VAN

Currently, our church owns two minivans, but we still rent several each Sunday to bring people to church. We have been praying that the Lord would open the door for us to purchase one or two more minivans.

    March - April 2017

     

     

     

    Dear Pastor and Friends,

     

    Meat Sunday:

    We had a wonderful start to our year. The second Sunday after returning to Tanzania, we had “Meat Sunday”. We prepared two cows and invited as many people as we could. We were excited to have a total of 427 on Sunday with 49 first time visitors. We also saw 32 people trust Christ as their Saviour and 2 were baptized.

     

    Salvation experience:

    Recently while working on a message on fear, I decided to ask some of the men who where doing some construction at our house for some ideas on some things that people were afraid of. One of the men spoke about the fear of where we will go after we die. I stopped right there and began to talk to him about salvation. It was incredible to be able to be able to share with him that he does not need to fear any longer because Jesus saves. David bowed his head right there and trusted Jesus Christ as His Saviour. Since then, he and his wife have come to church. Please pray with us as we endeavor to disciple this young couple.

     

    Marriage Seminar:

    We were very excited to have a total of 18 married couples at our marriage seminar this year. We had a wonderful time of games and teaching from the Bible. The theme for the teaching was on money in marriage. It was a blessing to hear many speak about how they were helped and challenged.

     

    Big days:

    We are in the middle of our special 4 week program. Each Sunday, we are having some special things here at the church and we are encouraging the members to invite friends, family and neighbors. The most exciting day will be our last Sunday called “Honor Your Parents Sunday” We are asking each member to endeavor to bring their parents to this Sunday. I believe this will be a wonderful tool to get the parents of our people to come to church.

     

    Radio Update:

    Please pray for the Radio Station. I have checked with the regulatory authority and they have told me that our license is at the final stage. It is currently in the office of the Minister of Communication waiting to be signed. Please pray that God would allow this to be processed quickly and in His time.

     

    Your Representatives to Tanzania,

     

     

     

    Jerry & Rachel Wyatt
