Popular minister and motivational speaker Myles Munroe died Sunday afternoon following a small-plane crash in the Bahamas, NBC News reports.
Nine people were on board when the plane went down. According to the news site, the Bahamian aviation ministry confirmed “some fatalities.” ABC News later reported that all passengers died in the crash.
In addition to Munroe, the deceased included Munroe’s wife, Ruth, who was also popular in the international evangelical sphere, NBC News notes, and Richard Pidner, senior vice president and pastor of Munroe’s Bahamas Faith Ministries International Fellowship.
According to the report, the plane was trying to make a landing at Grand Bahama International Airport when it crashed into a shipyard. The plane then hit a mechanical crane, according to ABC News, exploding on impact. The small group on the private Lear jet was reportedly headed to a Global Leadership Forum that was arranged by Munroe.

Special to the NNPA from the Houston Forward Times
When life gets really upside down with me spiritually, I get anxious and scattered. If not reminded by those closest to me, I get a gentle nudge from my wife to remember my perceived angst has nothing to with the answers to my problems. God’s already taken care of that. When I eventually calm down (and I always do), most of my current issues are related to time or my perceived lack thereof.
Special to the NNPA from the Dallas Weekly
This past weekend I was supported by friends as I humbly spoke to the male members of a local church at a prayer breakfast and was reminded of how much I was impacted by Mark 2:5. The parable of the paralytic struck me in a way that has never left my consciousness.
Special to the NNPA from The Dallas Weekly
Men, particularly Black men, survive in this natural world, lots of time on instinct, ego, stamina and an unwillingness to submit their wills to that of another man. Almost from birth, we are told we don’t have to take “that” off anyone. It can be difficult to reconcile the dilemma of faith and submission and that of sacrifice and accepting someone else’s will superseding our own.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will stretch out Your hand
Against the wrath of my enemies,
And Your right hand will save me. Psalm 138:7
When we are beset by troubles on every hand, and it seems that the ways of the wicked will prevail, this scripture can be a source of strength and renewal for those who love the Lord, our God, and who are called according to His purpose.
