Prayer Calendar for CrossWay International
Dean and Joan Chollar
May 1 – Pray that the Lord might provide some new or used laptops for our
coworkers in Guyana and Nicaragua, as I will be making a number of trips
there this summer and these kinds of items are really useful to them.
May 2 – Pray that the Lord will raise up the needed funds to purchase the
water well drilling rig, and that Bob Nicol and Merle Admire might have the
time to practice at least one well in Texas before we ship it to Northeast
Africa. For a musical picture display, go to www.gocrossway.org and check

water well drilling ministry and that they might be fully funded. The first
phase of this effort will run around $65,000 for the rig, shipping, truck,

Africa Field Director and those he oversees in the Medical Clinic and the

from which we send in money for food, clothes, and management costs.
May 8 – Pray for our Board of Directors meeting for CrossWay International,
as we hope to install 7 more Directors to make up for the 3 who left
recently. Several will be coming from out of town, so pray for safety for

that rocks the cradle.

Sudan near Darfur, as violence has erupted near them due to the elections in

people, and for Rafa Rivas, our coworker, who is setting up the pastors’
conference and VBS ministries for our team.

Stanwood, Washington with Joshua Flickner who heads up this ministry.

pray for Dean as he catches a red eye flight back to Texas at 11:45 PM that
May 17 – Pray for our school in Sudan where we have 5 classes with 110 kids
in each class. We could use more blackboards, books, and school supplies.

counseling, which is sorely needed overseas. Pray that God might raise up
his support for this needed work, as he has many requests for his services

pastors’ conference with a supporting church, and for the coworkers we have
in that country, John Persaud and Michael Williams.
May 20 – Pray that the Lord will raise up additional funds for the medicine
needed in our two clinics: one in Ethiopia and the other in Sudan. This is
an ongoing battle to keep the right kind and enough medicine to treat the
various issues that come up, such as Cholera, diarrhea, and malaria.
May 21 – Pray for the needed personnel to run the drilling rig in NE Africa.
We have had a number of interviews and need your prayers that the right men

orphans in Sudan.

along side and assist Dean in the work load he has. Dean is not getting any

forward in handling the accounting, graphic work for prayer letters, and
power points, etc.

opportunity to visit them in the coming year.
May 28 – Pray for all of our CrossWay Coffee Ambassadors and the key role
they play in helping us provide funds– especially for the food for the
orphans. Every bag that is ordered pays for enough food to feed one orphan
for one entire month.
May 29 – Pray for you, our prayer partners and our many churches that give
sacrificially to sustain our ministry and keep us moving forward in service
to God and the lost.
May 30 – Pray for greater boldness in sharing our faith with others, and
that we might make very clear that our salvation is a free gift through
faith alone in Jesus Christ who died for our sins and rose from the dead.
May 31 – Memorial Day – Pray for all our military and the dangers they face
to keep us free. Pray that our government doesn’t take away this freedom
through poor decisions.
