June 2009 Prayer Calendar for Dean and Joan Chollar
June 1- Pray for our little army of orphans in Sudan and that we all might
take to heart God’s word in James 1:27: “ Religion that God our Father

their distress…” The distress continues as we just learned that food
prices are up 30 percent due to crop failures last fall.

her church on a mission trip to Yucatan from June 2-9.
