Posts Tagged ‘Jill Yutzy’

Good-Bye, Jill.

Joe and I want to wish Jill Yutzy much success and luck as she leaves Plain City Druggist behind and heads off on new adventures.

We knew we couldn’t keep Jill long after she got a taste of world traveling on her mission trip to Asia last fall. Jill is off to do more mission work a bit closer to home. We know that she will be very successful in anything she takes on, because she always has a positive outlook and is not afraid to try new things.

Good luck, Jill. We will miss you!

Today, February 19, also happens to be Jill’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, Jill!!

Jill Yutzy Will Be Speaking About Her Missionary Trip This Sunday, November 14 at 6 pm at Haven Fellowship Church.

Jill Yutzy, who recently returned from a month long missionary trip, will be talking about her adventures this Sunday, November 14, at 6 pm at Haven Fellowship Church, located at 7730 Converse Huff Road in Plain City.

I tried to keep you updated on some of Jill’s adventures while she was gone through emails that her mom sent to us. I featured two of Jills emails in previous posts: Jill email 1 and Jill email 2. The complete background info on Jill’s trip can be found HERE.

If you attend Jill’s talk, you will get firsthand information about the trip, see photos, and be able to ask her questions. We are certain it will be an interesting evening.

Update from Jill Yutzy on her Mission Trip to China.

As we mentioned in an earlier post, Jill Yutzy left on August 25 for a four week, “Vision Trip to Asia” via Global Tribes Outreach. Jill went with friends, Brandon and Sara, and will be in China and Thailand. The trio will return to the United States on September 30. Jill asked that everyone keep her in their prayers during this month while she is gone.

We recently had this email from Jill’s parents, Gary and Ina Yutzy:

Dear Friends–We got this letter from Jill on Sunday.  So good to hear they are doing okay and things are going well.  You can reply to her, but be careful what you write –no use of God, Bibles, Church, praying (use ‘yarping’ as the code word for praying), etc.  They are in a non-Christian friendly county and this could cause problems.  The ‘gifts’ she refers to are the Bibles they smuggled in, I believe. Thanks for your interest and your prayers!  Gary and Ina”

Jill’s Letter:

“Hey, hey, hey, folks–it’s just Jill reporting from lands afar off! =) Still in one piece. Currently in China and having lots of fun! =) Much laughter going on at the moment, because we’re all so tired that we tend to get a little loopy at times. Good stuff !

“Our experiences so far: There are eight of us with Andrew Gingerich as our edge leader. We hiked a while the one day here in China with our hiking packs loaded.  We were all carrying around 70 or more lbs with our hiking packs full of ‘gifts’ and our backpacks. Waddling away we went. It was quite the sight with eight of us traipsing around with packs on our backs and fronts. Delivering ‘gifts’ went smoothly and was exciting! =D We were all quite relieved when our burden was lighter! We’ve had much tasting of Chinese food and have had some quite interesting items. It’s only begun!

“The squatty potty, I can say, is not on my list of favorites. Ahhh, I got to use a regular commode today and I had to remember how to sit normally. It felt ever so good! Ha,ha =)  Today we came to another friend’s house and then had lunch. Then later this afternoon, we went ‘yarpwalking’ and got some snacks to set us up for our treks. We’re splitting up tomorrow. I don’t know what we’re going to get into, but we’re going out into the villages which should be interesting! Ach, my eyes are going cross-eyed on me and others want the computer so off I go.

“Thanks for all of you who are ‘yarping’ for me. It is much appreciated and I will definitely be needing it some more! He’s been good! =) I’ll talk to you later.

“Just Jill”

If you would like to email Jill and offer her your support, you can send her letters at juzjilly@gmail.com

Remember, leave out any references to Bibles or praying in the emails to keep Jill safe. 

Jill Yutzy and Friends are Planning a Mission Trip to Thailand.

Jill Yutzy, who is one of the smiling faces you see behind the cash register and the steering wheel of the delivery van, is leaving on August 25 for a four week “Vision Trip to Asia” via Global Tribes Outreach. Jill is going with her friends, Sara and Brandon. The trio will have a two day orientation in New York City before heading to Chiang Mai, Thailand. They will return to the United States on September 30. 

Jill states in the letter that she sent to friends and family that the goal and mission she, Sara, and Brandon share is “to have God use us as His instruments to spread the Gospel and be a Light to those around us.” With Global Tribes Outreach, Jill will be interacting with the Thai people and leaving behind her “comfort zone.” 

Jill is required on this trip to support herself. The total costs are around $3500 per person. For all three of the young people, the amount will be $10,500. Jill would greatly appreciate any donations you might want to make to help her with this trip. We have a donation jar beside the cash register at the store to help her with her fundraising. If you would like to drop off your change or even a much larger donation, you can leave it for Jill at the pharmacy. 

More than donations, however, Jill is asking for your prayers while she is overseas. We promise that when she gets back, we will update you on her progress and hopefully post a few photos. 

Thank you for keeping Jill in your thoughts as she prepares for and then leaves for Thailand.
