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.

First Baptist Church of Hammond

FBMI is not just a service to us. It is made up of people who are a part of our church. We love First Baptist Church. We are grateful for those from the past and the present who are consistent Christian members of First Baptist Church. We are thankful that God has given us one of the most humble men to be our pastor. Pastor Wilkerson is a truly wonderful man!

Christopher Yetzer Prayer Letter: John and Romans

Christopher Yetzer Prayer Letter:  John and RomansTypically, we find an abundance of people out and about with whom we are able to create conversations and share the Gospel. In the spring, we started doing some distribution of John and Romans door to door in the area around our church. But with so many people being gone in August, we thought it would not be wise to fill so many mailboxes with “advertising,” which would just be thrown away by the porter before anyone got back from vacation. Instead of splitting the time with confrontational soul winning and mailbox distribution, we just took the whole time for confrontational soul winning, with a bit of time at the park and some ice cream for the kids afterwards.

Now that schools are started (most of the schools in Milan started on September 12) and everyone has returned, we are getting some more tracts printed so that they can be put into the John and Romans. We also have another church member who recently joined us for soul winning for the first time. He will be a big help in carrying John and Romans, as we do not have a car and have to transport them all by backpack.

In August, we were given a financial gift designated for a vacation. It was our first true family vacation in about three years. We were able to go up to Chiavenna in Northern Lombardy. It was such an enjoyable time for our whole family to be able to breathe the fresh air and experience God’s beautiful nature for several days. There were no honking horns, trash trucks, or ambulances—just the sound of the river running through the center of town.

Our family has been busy getting ready for and starting school. William is in seventh grade, AnnMarie is in third grade, and Charlotte is gleaning the basics from her loving mother. Everyone has been fairly healthy, which is truly a blessing. We have also been gathering documents and information for citizenship again. For a while, it looked like it might not be possible, but now we have almost all the documents and just need some certifications and translations. Please pray that the rest of the process will go smoothly and that we can accomplish everything needed before we have to renew our permissions to stay here next summer.

We try to include pictures for those who get our prayer letters by email. If you currently get this by mail and would like to have us start emailing our updates to you, please let us know.

Missionaries to the people of Italy,
