Stefan attended The Elijah Challenge Advanced Training in Houston in February 2008. When he came he was suffering from a debilitating neck problem that prevented him from working. After he returned to Canada, he was completely healed.

Stefan is the son of Ray & Fran Duerksen, Senior Pastors of Southland Community Church in Steinback, Manitoba.

"Things have been very busy since I got back and it felt like it was taking a long time and I still hadn't gotten a chance to use what Christ so freely gave---the authority over infirmities. Well, tonight at my cell meeting we prayed over one gentleman with headaches and other spiritual oppression and he was healed and set free. Then his brother came with severe lower back pain; the back was compressed. As we prayed over him he felt his back moving and stretching out and his pain left. He testified he wouldn't be wearing his brace anymore! Then another man came forward and he hadn't been able to work because his wrists were in so much pain. He showed us; as he rotated his wrists they crunched all the way around. After we ministered to him, his left side was 100% and his right wrist was 98% healed. God is so good!

Please pray for me as I am bringing The Elijah Challenge to my leadership team and we are planning to do outreach afterwards. We need some good ideas on what to do to draw in the unbelievers? Our town is unique and it is very cold to do outside events.

Also my in laws are unsaved and are very opposed to the gospel. My father-in-law is a farmer and has been unable to work due to a bad knee. He has just had knee surgery and to his disappointment it is getting worse. I see this as a perfect opportunity to see him healed and my family accepting Christ. Please pray for boldness as this is particularly hard for me due to who they are.

I appreciate all of your testimonies and prayers. May the Lord bless First Fruits abundantly in Jesus name."
