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: American Crunch

Christopher Yetzer Prayer Letter:  American CrunchApart from leaving family and friends, part of being a missionary is also leaving behind some things to which you are accustomed. We are probably better off without most of these things anyway: Reese’s, Doritos, garlic bread, Lucky Charms, Twizzlers, Combos, Snyder’s Pretzels, root beer, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, etc. Recently (somewhat unfortunately), American Crunch, a small store which now offers most of these items, opened up in our town. While most of the items are items that you would find on the shelves in the United States, their prices are different. A box of Lucky Charms, for example, would cost about $10.50. American “goods” are rarer here, so if you want that taste, you will have to pay the price. We’ll stick with the cereal from the local stores.

While the Gospel is not American in nature, it is something on all the shelves in the United States. That may be a bit of a stretch, but at least it is available throughout the country. Italy, like the whole of Europe and many other countries, does not have that same privilege. To find the Gospel in many other countries requires finding that “odd little store” that distributes it. We are happy to be one of those rare places in Italy where people can get the message of God’s free gift of eternal life.

Recently while out soul winning, we came upon a young lady who was sitting with her dog. Our kids enjoyed petting the dog, while I enjoyed sharing the Gospel with this Italian lady named Martina. After showing her verses from Scripture and explaining the Gospel, Martina prayed in her own words to God. This is not a common experience for us here in Italy. We seldom have someone so bold as to accept Christ on the first approach. The second, possibly even more uncommon thing, would be for that person to come to church. Martina fits this profile. We took her number and left her with the Italian translation of the book Done by Cary Schmidt. Pray for Martina and people like her, who have made a profession of their faith in God, but because of stereotypes (both of our type of church and churches in general) do not continue to grow in the faith.

Schoolbooks have arrived, and the kids are already diving in. Charlotte is doing well and growing. Amy and I are also doing well. We have new prayer cards available, which include Charlotte!!!! We are sending packets out to churches as we get requests. Please let us know.
