My wife and I were both born and raised in Ohio. I was reared in a faithful Catholic family. A confused Catholic youth worker gave the story of Jesus’ grace to me when I was fourteen. That experience gave me a false salvation testimony that I used when I started going to a Baptist church in tenth grade with a friend. That Baptist church was the first place I heard truth clearly preached from the King James Bible. The realization that the preaching was true because of God’s Word thrilled me. I moved to Columbus and searched for a church close to where I was staying. There I discovered what standards are and began changing mine. A bus route took over my usual Saturday activities, and I found myself lingering around the church wanting to converse and be with the people of God. Upon deciding I wanted to go to Hyles-Anderson College, I received an application in the mail. The application asked me for my testimony of salvation. Conviction gripped me because I knew I was not saved. The next Sunday, on August 3, 2003, I repented of my sin and asked Jesus for His gift of eternal life.

Not only did I meet my Saviour in Columbus, but I also met my beautiful wife. She was reared in a Christian family. She and her family have always attended Baptist churches. At the age of ten, she raised her hand to be saved at a revival meeting that her church was having in August of 1993. She walked down the aisle and prayed with a lady friend in the church. Many years passed, and she became very convicted about her salvation and questioned whether or not she was saved. Then on April 4, 1999, after the Lord’s Supper, she got the reassurance of her salvation and was baptized.

We have one son and one daughter. William Allen was born on December 9, 2007, and Ann Marie was born in Italy on September 7, 2011.

Christopher Yetzer Prayer Letter: Ministering Online in Italy

Christopher Yetzer Prayer Letter: Ministering Online in ItalyThroughout March, things had been changing almost daily here in Northern Italy, and we weren’t really sure when we could actually write a letter that would have accurate information. However, at this point, it appears that for some time, we will remain in this current condition, as it seems impossible that things could get any more restrictive.

At this point, almost the entire world is feeling the same inconveniences, so we won’t rehash the particulars of ours, but I do ask for prayer for Lombardy, the state in which we live. It has been the hardest-hit place in Italy. We had to cancel a baptism, as well as a wedding, but otherwise, all of the members of our church are doing well.

We still want to go forward for the Lord and do all we can during this time of lockdown. When I first heard over a month ago that all the schools and colleges would be closed, I immediately opened a Facebook account and started running advertising to college students and others, preaching the Gospel. We have continued to run ads and will do so throughout the duration of the lockdown. Antagonists have been the most responsive to the ads, but there have been some bright spots as well. One Filipino lady asked us, “How can someone be saved?” A lady from outside of Novara asked about finding a church in her area. Another lady gave us her phone number and said she was going through a spiritual battle and needed help. Others have asked for prayer. One lady in Milan gave us her address and wants to study the Bible, as well as a few people who said they would visit our church when things open back up. Replying to all the questions, attacks, and pleas has been very time-consuming, but we see it as a very profitable project.

Secondarily, because I now have a Facebook page, I have been updating churches with information on our current condition by that means. Feel free to friend me or follow me on Facebook. I do not normally accept requests from single women whom I do not know. If you are a missions secretary or from one of our supporting churches, please send me a private message with the church you are a part of so that I know who you are and can accept the request. My wife has my account on her devices, but I still want to be cautious. At this time, Facebook is a tool for us to preach the Gospel and minister to the lost in Italy. Things may shift as the current situation heals, but I don’t plan on being extremely active except for responding to those we are attempting to reach here in Italy, which is taking quite a bit of time.

Our family is healthy. The kids have not missed a day of class, as we homeschool, and this has been one of the healthiest years in our home with very little sickness. Thanks be to God! Thank you for loving and supporting our family in the midst of these difficult times for us all.

Missionaries to the people of Italy,

Christopher, Amy, William, AnnMarie, and Charlotte Yetzer
