Newsletter for Peter and Laura Marshall January 5, 2018

I am sitting in our living room looking at a couple of reminders that we are not in Uruguay. One, there is snow out our window! Two, there is an 8 foot live Christmas tree freshly cut from Maine! Why is it that a tree seems to grow as soon as you move it inside? What a change from Uruguay where you are looking for the air conditioning and planning your summer vacation at the beach.
We have been in the United States for a one year home assignment since early May. The first month back we were incredible busy. We drove from Columbus to Kansas City to visit our daughter Sara who works for Avant Ministries. I spoke in one of our partnership churches. We moved from Mansfield, OH to Boston, MA. We celebrated Peter’s Mom’s 90th birthday in Maine. And we attended Council in Columbus, OH.
It took most of the summer to get moved into our new house. It wasn’t all work though. We went to the beach several times with our daughter Nicole and her husband. We also went camping and hiking in Maine for a couple of days. In July, we attended the home assignment and retirement seminars in Colorado Springs. Laura also visited her Mom and sister in Texas.

The beginning of September we started tour in the Central district. During the second week of tour Peter’s brother passed away suddenly and we traveled back to Maine for his funeral. We ended tour on November 5th. We enjoyed being in many churches, meeting new people, seeing some familiar faces and sharing our ministry.
Some exciting news: While we were on tour this fall we heard the news that the leaders of the Salto church were interested in buying a property. After much praying and many donations both large and small they were able to purchase the property. It has a ready to move into building on it. After waiting for several months they finally signed the papers on December 20.

Prayer requests:
1) Please pray for a fresh anointing of God’s Spirit and power as we return for tour assignment in January.
2) Please pray that the inauguration and ministry to grow this year.
3) Please pray for our ministry assignment as we return to Uruguay in June 2018.
4) Praise! We have spent the last 2 weeks with all of our children and their families. This included an overnight trip to Maine to visit Peter’s Mom.

We would like to close by thanking you for giving to the Great commission fund which makes it possible for us to serve in Uruguay.

Also, thank you for giving to the Salto church property and to us personally. If you would like to receive a new prayer card please contact us. We would be happy to send you one.
Blessings, Peter and Laura
