Thousands celebrated Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife, Ruth, two influential leaders in Christianity being laid to rest Thursday in a state-recognized funeral in the Bahamas.
The funeral came nearly a month after the couple died in a plane crash along with eight others from their church Bahamas Faith Ministries.
Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie called Dr. Myles Munroe “indisputably one of the most globally recognizable religious figures our nation has ever produced.”
The story of that rise to prominence is incredible. He was born to poor parents in 1954 and is one of 11 children.
“I was born to transform followers into leaders. And leaders into agents of change,” Myles Munroe said in 2008.
Myles Egbert Munroe discovered his life’s purpose at age 13, not long after a school teacher told him he was nothing and he would never amount to anything. It’s a story he shared on CBN’s Turning Point program.
