Mark and Anne Marie Winz





Thank you for your interest in our publishing ministries with Cru's magazine, Worldwide Challenge, and Writing for Life communications training.


In Worldwide Challenge, we're working to cover international ministries, including:

  • a report about an orphanage in India,
  • a story of a wheel-chair bound woman who builds disciples in Canada and
  • one mom's outreach in Thailand to other parents whose children go to school with hers. a


Closer to home, we're working on stories about:

  • college football players in Kentucky taking the gospel message to their teammates, 
  • an outreach in an Indianapolis high school, and 
  • a machinist in Kansas who leads ministries on several small campuses as a volunteer. 

Would you join us in praying for three things?

  • First, pray for our opportunities to take communications training to others in full-time ministry.
  • Second, pray for us as we seek to develop additional ministry funding in light of increasing needs.
  • Third, pray for good communication with our ministry staff members and leaders around the world as we plan upcoming magazine stories and possible trips for Writing for Life training.
