Bahamas Aviation investigators are searching for the cause of the deadly plane crash that killed famed pastor Myles Munroe, his wife Ruth and seven others.
The incident occurred Sunday afternoon as people were gathering in Grand Bahama for his ministry’s Global Leadership Forum.
Aviation experts say the Lear 36 executive jet had departed from Nassau, the capital of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, and crashed around 5pm while attempting to land at the Bahamas International Airport. The jet exploded when it collided with a shipyard crane on its approach, local news reports said.
Painful sobs were heard as church leaders broke the news to attendees of the leadership summit on Sunday.
About a month ago, Dr. Munroe talked about death and how he wants to die on The Jeff Koinange Show. Look under.
Dr. Munroe was the senior pastor of Bahamian Ministries of Faith International Fellowship. He was also a best-selling author, an internationally known preacher and a frequent guest on CBN’s The 700 Club.
“The Bahamas is where God lives and visits America often,” he once joked on The 700 Club.
Munroe and his wife, Ruth, had two children. Their global leadership conference was due to start on Monday.
“On behalf of Myles Munroe International and ITWLA, we would like to inform you that the Global Leadership Forum will continue,” reads a post on his ministry’s Facebook page. « The Forum will last two and a half days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning). This is what Dr. Munroe would have liked. Please keep his family and ministry in prayer. »
