Duane Tracy Health Update
This update is from Russell Lorfing, Duane's son in the faith, who has walked alongside him in ministry since 1993.

Greetings in the awesome name of Jesus!
Duane is still recovering from over 4 years of a life-threatening internal infection. While they have found and removed abscesses on two occasions, the exact source of his infection is still not known. Over the last 4 years, Duane has battled back from weeks of hospital stays, several surgeries and two instances where his doctors believed that he might not survive. In the midst of this, Duane was also recently diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer. Due to extensive damage from the surgeries and infections, the cancer is currently inoperable and untreatable.
That's the bad report. The GREAT report is that DUANE IS ALIVE! His declaration since the beginning has been, "I WILL LIVE!" and "I WILL BE WELL!" There have been some close calls along the way, and he is still experiencing large amounts of pain and sporadic infections, but he has resumed his ministry schedule and is making plans for the next 20 years. Duane's ministry is as powerful as ever and his church, River of Grace, is in a time of increase and expansion. Annette continues to be right by his side everyday as his primary caretaker. Space will not permit me to go into all the details, but Annette just received medical confirmation of a supernatural healing in her heart. (The kind where the doctors said, "Don't even make a follow up appointment - there is NOTHING wrong with your heart!")
We have seen God's power and faithfulness throughout this journey with Duane (including a medically verified, brand new heart for him, too). We continue to contend for nothing less than 100% total healing and restoration in his body. We KNOW that total healing is God's desire and that Jesus paid for it already! While we are contending, many of us that love Duane and Annette are supporting them financially on a monthly basis. Their medical costs are large and if you would like to help them financially, with a one-time gift or monthly support, we have a way for you to do that. My ministry, Power of God World Outreach, is receiving tax-deductible gifts for Duane and Annette and 100% of every offering goes directly to their support. We even absorb the credit card / payment processing fees so that 100% goes to them. If you would like to support them financially, you can give via PayPal below.
If you would like to mail a check, you can mail it to:

If you need help making a gift, or would like to give a recurring monthly gift, you can reply to this message or call Power of God World Outreach at (817) 907-5755.
Above all else, continue to pray for Duane and Annette as we believe for the GREATNESS OF JESUS to be seen in Duane's body!
