Prayer Calendar for Dean and Joan Chollar with CrossWay International
Dean and Joan and our staff, both here in the USA and overseas, want to wish
you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
January 1 – Pray for the upcoming year of 2010 and that we might all be more
devoted to the Lord and His work.
January 2 – Pray for our 549 orphans in Sudan and especially for the clothes
they need, as they only have what is on their backs. We are hoping to buy
some clothes soon for them if we can get a good price in the area where they
live. Also, milk cows and milk goats.
January 3- Pray for our staff in the USA as we settle into our routine of
defining roles and work assignments.
January 4- Pray for greater courage and boldness as each of us has the
opportunity to share the gospel of God’s grace.
January 5 – Pray for Dr. Isaiah Dau and Mr. Ken Gatithi as they travel from
Nairobi, Kenya into Sudan to check on the orphans and their needs. This will
be a great help as they know the culture and Isaiah speaks Denka.

coworker’s job descriptions in Sudan who look after the orphans. Isaiah and
Ken will be making recommendations of how best to restructure some of the
oversight in this ministry.

Retreat led by Allen Mann.
January 8 - Pray for the youth in Arizona that their hearts will be open to

of God’s grace this year of 2010.

more and more responsibility and important work in our ministry.

might spread swiftly and be honored even as it is among us.
January 24 – Pray for Bob Nicol, our Engineer who oversees and gives
direction for our well drilling. And pray for the possibility of acquiring

care of the building/grounds needs, Ronnie Brown and Merle Admire with the
