The Royal Bahamas Police force reports “A Lear 36 executive jet left the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) at 4:07 p.m. carrying nine people for the Grand Bahama International Airport. The Bahamas Ministry of Transport and Aviation said the plane crashed while making an approach for landing at Grand Bahama International Airport at 5.10pm.
Dr. Munroe, his wife and members of his team were on their way to the Global Leadership Forum – an annual conference organized by Dr. Munroe. It was scheduled to start this week in Freeport. The event will continue, according to a statement posted to Dr. Munroe’s Facebook page: “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” it said.
Dr Munroe was a great Bible teacher, governmental consultant, leadership mentor and a friend to many. He leaves behind his son Chairo Myles Junior. MannaEXPRESS was priviledged to interview Dr. Munroe on two occasions. Read his last interview here. May their gentle souls rest in peace, Amen.
