March 14, 1930 – July 26, 2020
Myrtis Stamps servant of God took her flight to world unknown. She left her labor here on earth to enter into her rest. She fought a good fight and finished her course. She was created to carry out a mission, which is now complete. She always knew she was a stranger and a pilgrim here. This world was not her home. She always knew her mission was to reach the lost. To preach the gospel to the entire world. She went as far as she could and did all she could do to obey the commandment of God. Her prayer was dear Lord help me not to fail you. I will go where you want me to go and do what you want me to do. As long as I know you are with me. Her desire was that when she see him he would say well done. Myrtis Stamps went home to be with the Lord on July 26, 2020. Myrtis Stamps was the daughter of the late Charlie and Vera Menniefee. She was born March 14, 1930 in Camp Hill, Alabama 1 of 10 children. She was preceded in death by 3 sisters: Bessie Ruth, Doris Green and Shirley Coleman. One brother, Calvin Menniefee. Husband, David Stamaps. Two sons, Rodney and Charles Swanson. She received Jesus Christ as lord and savior at the age of 9 years, was baptized and filled with the Holy Ghost. She truly was a servant of God. A missionary at home and abroad to Mexico, Philippines, Haiti, Egypt, Cairo, Jordan, Athens Greece, England, Lebanon, and Copenhagen. She was an ambassador for God. Now she has put away her luggage never to travel here anymore. So to those who remain don’t weep for me. I have gone home. I will be waiting for you. So rejoice and stay ready your time will come. Be happy for me. This is my day. If you get weary or lonely Jesus is just a prayer away. So I leave you all in Gods hand. I know you will miss me but remember I love you one and all. My children Patricia Lee and Sandra Lee, 12 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, siblings Rosie Lee Bundy, Hazel Pettiford, Charlie and James Menniefee, a host of nieces, nephews and friends. I will never say goodbye to friends and loved ones. I hope to meet you in the air with Jesus by and by. Psalm 23

I will never forget the day I met you. You embraced me into your family as though you'd already known me. I knew deep down inside when you said last year would be the last time you would make it to the Alabama/Georgia area that was your way of saying we would never see one another on this earth again. We once spoke about knowing when we had completed what we were meant to do here on earth.....you've soldiered your life for Jesus Christ and now you're with him. I will miss you.....every day until we meet again. Please say hello to my mom when you meet her. I love you.

You listened. You tried to sing. You prayed, if you wanted. Then you ate, usually beans or lentils with bread, on good days a piece of fruit. That was life for a patron of God's Extended Hand on lower fifth avenue in San Diego in the late seventies and that was a hard street at the time. And that was where I met Sister Stamps. My how she preached, how she praised Jesus and how she cared. Souls for the Kingdom was the reason she was there and we'll never know in this life how many lives she touched. I never knew a more genuine person or mightier warrior for God. Our loss is heavens gain-bless her family, friends and thank you, Sister Stamps

My condolence to Sis. Stamps’ Natural and Spiritual Family,
Sister Stamps loved all people and impacted so many lives. You never had to ask her for prayer, because in each phone call, she always prayed. She never said goodbye because she had a revelation of “eternal life”. She used to share biblical revelations that God had given her with me and her daughter-in-law, Ann Swanson. In fact, the last revelation that she shared with me was what God told her about the Black Egyptians.
Sis. Stamps was one of “God’s General’s” sent to the nations of the world to do His work; as she said, “Sent to the-poorest-of-the-poor” especially to Mexico; where God has raised up many Mexico’s, as a result of Sis. Stamp’s preaching.
To the Family, “God is still a prayer-answering-God!” To Sis. Stamps, “Enjoy your eternity, as we continue to carry out the biblical revelations that you shared with us in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth”.
