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 and Amy Yetzer Prayer Letter: 11th Church Anniversary

Christopher and Amy Yetzer Prayer Letter: 11th Church AnniversaryWe recently celebrated our church’s 11th anniversary. It was a blessing to have Bro. and Mrs. Tacon, missionaries in Pisa, come up to Milano for the event. Mrs. Tacon shared her testimony, and Bro. Tacon preached three messages on our theme. He did a wonderful job, and all three messages were well received. The Keister family, missionaries in Bologna, also came and sang for us. Saturday morning before the meeting, we went out soul winning and inviting people to the service. Bro. Tacon paired up with a man in our church named Nicolas, and Christopher paired up with William. Bro. Tacon and Nicolas spoke to a Latin American, who made a profession of faith. William and Christopher spoke to a Spanish young man. The young man from Spain did not speak a lot of Italian, but he came to the meeting that night. It was obvious he had never been in that type of a church gathering before. After the preaching, he went up to Christopher with wide, concerned eyes and said that he had to leave immediately. I’m sure our church is a shock to people who are only used to cathedrals and a vacant lot between you and the person sitting next to you. We gave out coins engraved with the theme. It was a wonderful time.

One of the visitors who was going to come for our anniversary (he made it to the building but about three hours too late) has contacted us through Facebook. He lives a distance away from our church and wants to get baptized. There are so few fundamental Baptist churches here in Italy that even though he won’t be able to travel to Milano consistently, we are the closest ones to him! He is a walking miracle, as he has had several brain surgeries and God has spared him through it all. We are working with him now and hope to baptize him sometime soon.

In our last letter, we mentioned the possibility of staying in our apartment for another four years, but the owner has told us that this is not possible. We now have until November to move. Thankfully, we have found a broker who seems to be able to get us a mortgage; however, we need to have some money to make the down payment. Also, because of the situation, we are going to have to test out this avenue before November so we leave ourselves space for correcting our course. Please pray that we will be able to make the arrangements and that the Lord will provide for this down payment. Pray also that we will find the appropriate place to move where we can be a blessing and witness to our neighbors!

After a bit of lost mail, we are finally on the last leg of obtaining Amy’s grandfather’s birth certificate. The certificates have been made, the village clerk’s signature has been verified by the county, and the state has put on the apostille. All of that is now being translated before it will be sent to the Italian Consulate in the USA and then over to us. Thank you for your support and love for our family!

Missionaries to the people of Italy,

Christopher, Amy, William, AnnMarie, and Charlotte Yetzer
