It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Myles Munroe. Today, November 9th, at approximately 5pm local Bahamas time, Dr. Munroe, his beloved wife Ruth, and several key members of their staff passed in a plane crash. There were nine passengers aboard and confirmations of the deaths are still coming forth. The rain is rumoured to have played a role in the crashing of the Lear 36 Executive Jet Dr. Munroe, his wife, and staff were aboard. At 4:07pm local time, the passengers were travelling from Freeport, Grand Bahama Island to Nassau where the plane was said to have “exploded on impact” in the Grand Bahama Shipyard while in the process of landing.
The party was headed to their Global Leadership Forum, planned for November 10th through 13th, which is hosted by Dr. Munroe and his ministry, Bahamas Faith Ministries International. Dr. Munroe had an incalculable impact on the world with his demonstrative, illuminating Kingdom teachings. Please keep their children, Charisa and Chairo, the remainder of their family as well as the congregation and loved ones of the others who passed in your prayers. We cannot make sense of this. However, we can remember the words of the Apostle Paul:
To be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. (II Corinthians 5:8)
You do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. (I Thessalonians 4:13 NIV)
