My dear people of God,
Receive New Year Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
At our great assembly in Jerusalem last year, we gathered around the theme of ‘Proclaiming Christ Faithfully to the Nations’ so it is very appropriate that we begin a new year with the celebration of the Epiphany, the revealing of Jesus as God’s Son to the nations.

Relief efforts are already being organized for the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Here’s how you can help!
Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped with relief for those suffering from the mudslide in northern Thailand. St. Martin received $1,545.00 from congregations in the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, and another $1,735.00 from other Asian churches in Fresno, for a grand total of $3,080.00 raised! Thank you for the opportunity to spread the Gospel among hill tribes in Thailand. The pastor of the village that was so badly impacted indicates that more villagers will likely open their hearts to Christ after tragedy strikes, because we show them love. I have some pictures to show how our donations are reaching their intended purpose. We helped with much needed household supplies, and even a little cash, for 60 families.
Again, thank you very much for all the support!
