In 2011, the Diocese of Texas entered into a "companion relationship" with the Diocese of Southern Malawi. As part of this outreach effort, St. Martin's will be raising awareness of the most critical need of fresh water for Southern Malawi and generate funds towards a water well for our Lenten season. The cost of drilliing a water well and building a storage system is $15,000. Please help us purchase one well for our Anglican family in Southern Malawi.
