Dear family and friends,

Melissa and I are very excited to get married and are thankful to have you participate.

We both have plenty of stuff, and we would RATHER lay up treasures in heaven … so if you’d like to give us a gift, we’d like to ask you to consider a gift sponsoring the Kingdom work that we are involved in.

Jason and Children from Riamugaa

CrossWay International is a mission organization started by Jason’s Dad, Dean Chollar, in 1997 that has current primary ongoing operations in Kenya and Nicaragua.  Dean is in the process of handing over the leadership to Jason.  We SHOW people God’s love (water projects, milk-goats, etc.) which opens the door for us to TELL people the good news about Jesus, and then we partner with and TEACH others to carry on doing the same.  You can browse around this website to learn more about CrossWay International.


Specifically, though, we are dedicating any wedding donations through CrossWay International to a poor community in Kenya called Riamugaa.  We are dreaming of putting in a larger water system and install some community toilets and sinks.  You can learn more about the latest regarding the Riamugaa project by clicking here:

Trinity Legal:

For those who may not know it, Melissa works as a full time attorney for Trinity Legal, which is a non-profit organization started by Christian attorneys to serve the poor of Oklahoma. Their clients would otherwise not have access to legal services, and are often in the midst of life-changing recovery efforts.
