Prayer Calendar for Dean and Joan Chollar at CrossWay International for September 2010
Check out our most recent prayer letter online:
September 1 – Pray for those who trusted in Christ on our last trip to Nicaragua in August. We had 29 who indicated they had made such a decision through the preaching of Merle Admire and Dean. Pray also for the 30 pastors who attended our Pastors’ Conference and for a greater understanding of God’s tremendous grace.
September 2 – Pray for Bob Nicol and Merle Admire, our 2 new Regional Directors who are heading up our new division, CrossWay Water for Life. Check out their brochures and prayer letters on our main website under the “Who Are We” tab or go to:

Merle Admire’s prayer letter:
September 3 – Pray for Robert and Ann Messier as they pray about an appointment to become our representatives to the country of Nicaragua. Robert has been appointed to become the Director of this Country as our American component to help us oversee God’s expanding ministry in this country.
September 4 – Pray for our upcoming Board of Directors meeting in October and the many decisions we will face. We have 12 Directors now, and God has given us many gifted individuals from different walks of life.
September 5- Pray for Dean as he updates and challenges hearts at Wayside Chapel in San Antonio with many of their old friends.
September 6 – Pray for our tax-exempt status in Kenya, as we have shipped some expensive drilling equipment and a rig to this country. We received our registration as a non-profit organization last month, and we now want to pursue Phase Two in this process and hope to save some dollars with the tax-exempt status.
September 7 – Pray for our 549 orphans in Sudan and those who care for them on the field: the managers, teachers, guards, cooks, and cleaning ladies. Pray that God might continue to bring in the needed support. Much of this comes in through our CrossWay Coffee Ministry and the work of Sherry Zule, the manager over this ministry. Remember, friends don’t let friends drink Starbucks!
September 8 -It’s Dean’s birthday! No, don’t send Dean the new expensive hunting rifle he has always wanted. Instead, consider a donation to CrossWay International and designate it for our orphans in Sudan. J And pray for the crops they are growing to help feed these orphans.
September 9 – Pray for our Field Director, Ken Gatithi, in Kenya as we set up our office in Nairobi, and also for Geoffrey Ndungu, our superintendent of the water well drilling team we are setting up for that region. Also, Ken and his wife, Winnie, expect a second child in a few months.
September 10 – Pray for Rafael (and Darling) Rivas. He is our Field Director for Central America and is assisting us in lining up Pastors’ Conferences, which are sorely needed in this area, and also the drilling of water wells.
September 11 – Pray for Dean as he climbs on a plane again to head to Phoenix and for the opportunities he has to share Christ with those he encounters.
September 12 – Pray for Dean as he preaches at our supporting church in Arizona and challenges hearts to partner in our ministry even more than they already have.
September 13 – Dean flies back to Texas and asks for prayers for safety and opportunities to share his faith in Christ.
September 14 -Pray for the CrossWay Good News Cube we are developing. We think it will be a great tool for those interested in a simple and clear gospel presentation to use. We will send out more on this when it is completed.
September 16 – Pray for Francisco (and Jasmine) Caldera, our newly appointed Nicaraguan Field Director for this country, as he works closely with Rafa Rivas and Robert Messier in developing plans to reach out to Nicaragua.
September 17—Pray for the children of the world who go to bed without enough food, clean water and access to hearing the gospel in Meki, Ethiopia. Pray also for our Field Director, Melaku Abebe.
September 18 – Pray for Dean as he climbs once again into a plane to travel to the West Palm Beach, Florida area to report into a supporting church and minister in the pulpit.
September 19 – Pray for Dean as he preaches at both worship services and teaches the combined Adult Sunday School Classes. Pray that it might be a good time of fellowship with some old friends.
September 20 – Pray for Dean as he heads back to Texas to prepare for the upcoming Board of Directors meeting of CrossWay International and finalize plans for his trip to Kenya, Ethiopia, and Sudan.
September 21 – Pray for Phil Myers, a very qualified Bible teacher who is praying about visiting our school and orphans in Sudan. Pray for the Lord to provide the cost for such a trip.
September 22 – Pray for the development of much of our work into Spanish. Robert Messier is spearheading this with the help of our neighbor, Rudy Hernandez, and our Field Director for Central America, Rafa Rivas.
September 23 – Pray for Fernando Diaz in Spain as we look into how best to involve him in Central America where he has some ongoing work as well.
September 24 – Pray for Lawson Sampson in Nigeria where we planted one church, and for his ongoing soccer ministry which he uses effectively for evangelism.
September 25 – Pray for our coworker, Malcolm Harris in Liberia, as he struggles with hardship in this impoverished area of the world.
September 26 – Pray for Kristina Kolerich, a former reporter in the Chicago area who is helping us in raising awareness of our story and ministry through various media outlets.
September 27- Pray for our staff in the USA as we face many challenges to keep the office running smoothly. There are a number of personal unspoken requests that we would like you to bring before the Lord concerning family issues.
September 28 – Pray for our 12 Directors here in the USA, that they might continue to be more and more engaged in the work and offer their skills and wisdom to the ministry.
September 29- Pray for your own church and its emphasis to reach out to the lost. It’s easy to become ingrown and lose the focus of the New Testament to take the gospel to the ends of the world. (Acts 1:8)
September 30 – Pray for Bruce McIntosh, our coworker and professional Christian Counselor. He is coming to visit our staff and other missionaries from October 1 – 3 to assist us in evaluating typical issues that arise among staff members and missionaries that are common and yet unique to this kind of work. Pray that he might have a productive visit.
