“No matter what you think of Dr. Myles Munroe, whether good or ill, the beautiful thing about this tragedy is that he and his wife, Ruth, lived together, loved one another together, served God together, and died together.” –Daniel Whyte III
In a moving service just one week after the tragic death of Myles Munroe, leaders at Bahamas Faith Ministries told the congregation that Munroe had prepared them for the time when he would pass off the scene and said they were ready to continue the work that he began.
Pastor Dave Burrows, the ministry’s former director of business affairs who is now the newly elected Chairman of the Board of Governors, led those gathered in remembering the lives of Myles Munroe, his wife, Ruth, and the seven others who died in a plane crash in Freeport. Dr. Richard Pinder was the senior vice president and pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries Fellowship Church. He is survived by his wife, Sheena, and their two children.
The others who died in the crash are: Pastor Lavard Parks, his wife Rodel, and their son Johanan; Farkhan Cooper; and the plane’s pilots, Captain Stanley Thurston and Diego DeSantiago.
It was announced that a national memorial service for Pastor Myles Munroe will be held at the Thomas A. Robinson Stadium in Nassau and will be open to the public. The homegoing (funeral) service for Dr. Munroe and his wife, Ruth, will be held on Thursday, December 4th, 2014, at Bahamas Faith Ministries International Diplomat Center in Nassau, Bahamas. A homegoing Service for Dr. Richard Pinder will be held on Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014, at the same location.
Pastor Burrows read messages from T.D. Jakes, Tyler Perry, and OneRepublic about the impact Myles Munroe had. He said that the Munroe family had requested privacy during this time.
