Revered and respected pastor, author and teacher, Dr. Myles Munroe and wife died in a plane crash yesterday.
Dr. Munroe and his wife and co-pastor Ruth were the leaders of Bahamas Faith Ministries. They were killed, it is believed when their private jet struck a crane at the Grand Bahama Shipyard, exploding on impact, according to Bahamas Tribune. The aircraft, a Lear 36 Executive Jet, crashed near a junkyard after departing from Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA), headed for the Grand Bahama International Airport.
Among his many books and teachings, one of my favorite lessons and lifechanging principles I was introduced to by him, is the principle of “dying empty”. At one of his last media interviews was one with Kenya’s JKL Show where he spoke on October 24 about living to die. “I want to challenge every Kenyan to go to the cemetery and disappoint the graveyard. Die like the Apostle Paul who said I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and I have been poured out like a drink offering. There is nothing left. I am ready to die. That’s how I wanna die because there is nothing else for me left to die. When you die, die like I am planning to die. Empty. It’s finished.”
We honor the legacy of Dr. Myles Munroe and pray for the families of all of those lost in the crash.
