Myles Munroe dies in Bahamas plane crash

10 November 2014, 08:38

Freeport - A small plane crashed Sunday on approach to the island of Grand Bahama, killing all 9 people on board, the government of the Bahamas said.

The Lear 36 Executive Jet had taken off from the Bahamian capital of Nassau and crashed while attempting to land around 17:00 local time in Freeport, according to a statement from the Ministry of Transport and Aviation.

"The Department of Civil Aviation has been advised unofficially that the aircraft was destroyed and that there were no survivors," the ministry said.

The crash occurred as people were gathering in Grand Bahama for the 2014 Global Leadership Forum. The Bahamas Tribune newspaper reported that Myles Munroe, a prominent Bahamian minister who organized the event, was killed along with several people in his entourage.

Chief Supt. Clarence Reckley said he could not confirm the report and that authorities were still trying to determine the identities of the victims.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined though there had been heavy rain across the region.

Police and fire authorities were on scene and a full investigation would begin at daylight on Monday.

Myles Munroe International posted this message on Facebook on Monday morning: "Dear Facebook Friends. On behalf of Myles Munroe International and ITWLA.

"We would like to inform you that the Global Leadership Forum will continue. The Forum will be for two and a half days (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning). This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep his family and the ministry in prayers."

In October, Myles visited Kenya for the second time and made stops at various churches for workshops. Before the workshops, he managed to appear on KTN's JKL show.

Here is his interview with Jeff, explaining how he rose from grass to grace.
