Internationally renowned preacher and business coach Dr. Myles Munroe of Bahamas Faith Ministries International and his wife Ruth Ann Munroe, died in a plane crash earlier in the Bahamas.
The plane, a Lear 36 executive jet, reportedly struck a crane at the Grand Bahama Ship Yard, exploding on impact and crashing into the ground near a junkyard area, the Associated Press reported.
The Bahamas Ministry of Transport and Aviation reported that the Lear 36 executive jet departed the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) in Nassau, Bahamas on November 9 at 4:07PM for the Grand Bahama International Airport, a privately owned international airport in Freeport, Bahamas with nine people on board.
The plane crashed while making an approach for landing at Grand Bahama International Airport at 5.10PM, the Ministry of Transport and Aviation said. The crash killed all nine people on board the private jet. The identities of the other people on board have not yet been confirmed. The cause of the crash was not immediately determined, though there had been heavy rain across the region. A full investigation is expected to begin on November 10.
The crash occurred as people were gathering in Grand Bahama for Dr. Myles Munroe’s 2014 Global Leadership Forum which starts on November 10.
Known for his work and teachings on leadership, purpose and maximizing your potential, vision, individual and national transformation, Dr. Myles Munroe was the senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship, where his wife, Ruth Ann, served as co-senior pastor. They leave behind two children, daughter, Charisa and son, Chairo (Myles Jr.) Munroe.
