Please pray for the family of Mrs. Marvin (Joan) Stephens, who went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 28, after an extended battle with cancer. Joan served the Lord faithfully, alongside her husband, in the Spanish literature division of Baptist Mid-Missions, Editorial Bautista Indpenediente (EBI).  She was an English teacher at Heartland Christian School and an English professor at South Florida Community College, both in Sebring, FL. A memorial service for Joan will be  held on Monday, May 4, 2009 at 12 p.m. in the Whipple Ave. Baptist Church, Canton, Ohio. Friends may sign a guest book in memory of Joan.
