approach near Grand Bahama International Airport, killing
everyone on the plane, including a prominent evangelical pastor
and his wife.
"The Department of Civil Aviation has been advised unofficially
that the aircraft was destroyed and that there were no survivors," the Ministry of Transport and Aviation said in a statement to The Associated Press.
The Lear 36 Executive Jet had taken off from the Bahamian capital of Nassau and crashed about 5 p.m. local time today, as it was coming in for a landing at Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport.
Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife Ruth were killed in the crash, Kelley Jackson, a spokeswoman from the Andrew J. Young Foundation told ABC News.
"Ambassador Young expresses his deep sadness over the tragic
death of his friends Dr. Myles and Mrs. Ruth Munroe," the
organization posted on its Facebook page tonight. "He offers
condolences to the Munroe family and the families of the other
Forum, which was organized by Munroe and was scheduled for
this week in Freeport.
A posting on Munroe's Facebook page said the event would go on
for two and a half days.
"This is what Dr. Munroe would have wanted. Please keep his
family and the ministry in prayers," the post said.
Dr. William M. Wilson, president of Oral Roberts University where Munroe was a student, expressed his sadness at the loss of an "outstanding ORUalumni and friend."
A spokesperson at the Bahamas Air accident investigation and
prevention unit told ABC they understand that it may be the plane of a prominent minister in the Bahamas, but officials have declined to identify the victims.
Based upon the flight plan information that was registered at the
point of the departure, officials are of the opinion that the plane
was the only aircraft in the area at the time, so they are going on
the assumption that it was a prominent minister on the aircraft, the spokesperson said.
It was not yet known what caused the crash, and police and
rescue teams were on the scene, but a full investigation would
only begin at daylight, officials said.
"The Department of Civil Aviation has been advised that there were some fatalities and we are awaiting confirmation from the Royal Bahamas Police Force as to whether there were any survivors,"
The Department of Civil Aviation said in a statement. "The Grand
Bahama Airport Company Crash Fire Rescue Department
responded to the incident, and the Police and Bahamas Air Sea
Rescue (BASRA) are presently on the scene."

Patrick Sawyer, but survived the ravages of the disease,
allegedly caused commotion in her church last Sunday.
According to reports, the young woman (name withheld) had
stepped out to testify to the goodness of God in her life.
When it was her turn to share her testimony with the
congregation, she sang and thanked God for helping her
survive the ailment and testing negative to Ebola. Everyone
allegedly joined in clapping and thanking God on her behalf.
However, when it was time for her to return the microphone to
the pastor to call the next person, THISDAY reports thus:
“The Pastor said she should handover the microphone to the
next person, but the next person shifted back and refused to
collect it. The Ebola survivor tried to hand the microphone over
to other testifiers but they also declined, claiming that they
would testify later. The sister had to put the microphone on the
floor. Before she could turn back to return to her seat, almost
everyone around her in the church had jumped outside to
escape contracting the disease.”
Stepping into the Unknown by Joyce Meyer - August 21, 2014
And I said to you, You have come to the hill country of the
Amorites, which the Lord our God gives us. Behold, the Lord your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the
Lord, the God of your fathers, has said to you. Fear not, neither be dismayed.—Deuteronomy 1:20–21
Parents, teachers, and other role models can teach children how
to fear or they can teach them to be bold. A mother who is fearful herself will transmit that fear to her children. She will be overly cautious about many things, and a silent fear sinks into the heart of her children. We should not teach our children to live recklessly, but we should teach them to be bold, take action, and to never be so afraid of making mistakes that they won’t try things.
I believe we should teach our children and those under our
authority to take chances in life. If we never take a chance, we will
never make progress. Progress always requires stepping into the
unknown. Experience gives us confidence, but we never get
experience unless we step out and try things we have not tried
I encourage you to teach others by word and example how to be
bold and courageous. Tell people to try things, reminding them
that making a mistake is not the worst thing that can happen.
Lord, help me both in word and deed to show others to be bold and courageous. I will gladly follow You into the unknown. Amen.

hard to stomach: Pope Francis says he has only two or three
years to live.
Although the Argentina-born Pontiff was silent on why he
thinks he would not live for more than three years, he hinted
that he had ‘some nerve problems’ which require treatment.
He spoke with journalists aboard his jet as he returned from a
trip to South Korea.
Francis, according to the Mailonline on Tuesday, also
mentioned the possibility of retiring from the Papacy if his
health failed to cope with the rigours of his office.
His predecessor, Benedict XVI, stepped down last year, in an
unprecedented move that opened the way for Francis to
become the Pope.
“I see it as the generosity of the people of God. I try to think of
my sins, my mistakes, not to become proud. Because I know it
will last only a short time,” the pope said.
Then, apparently light-heartedly, he added, “Two or three years
and then I’ll be off to the Father’s house.”
A Vatican source, said the Mailonline had claimed that the
Pope had previously told those close to him that he thought he
only had a few years to live.
Although Francis is 77, he has been the most vigorous Pope in
years, his energy proving the key to his popularity.
His frank admission may lead commentators to speculate as to
whether he has any undisclosed health problems.
At the time of his elevation to the Papacy, reports emerged that
Francis had a lung removed when he was a teenager in
Argentina after suffering an infection.
The Mailonline quoted Dr. William Schaffner, chairman of
preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Centre in
Nashville, Tennessee in United States, to have said, “So
whatever they did got him over that precarious period. As
people age, they generally become more susceptible to lung
infections, such as pneumonia and bronchitis.”
The risk of lung infections increases if those affected have pre-
existing conditions such as a weakened immune system or
But Francis joked about the nervous problems, saying, “I must
treat them well, these nerves, give them mate (an Argentine
stimulant tea) every day.”
“One of these neuroses, is that I’m too much of a homebody,”
he added and recalled that the last time he had taken a holiday
outside of Argentina was with the Jesuit community in 1975.
Resigning the papacy, as his predecessor Benedict XVI did last
year, was also a possibility “even if it does not appeal to some
theologians”, Francis told the journalists.
He added that 60 years ago, it was practically unheard of for
Catholic bishops to retire, but nowadays it was common.
As the jet travelled through the airspace, Francis also
addressed the issues surrounding the Catholic Church in China,
a country which refuses to allow Catholics to officially
recognise the spiritual leadership of the Vatican.
Since the communist revolution, Catholicism, like all religions,
has been permitted to operate only under the supervision of the
State Administration for Religious Affairs.
Clerics who resisted this had been subjected to oppression,
including long imprisonment torture and even martyrdom.
Pope Francis told the journalists he wanted dialogue with
China and the only thing he asked in return was for the Catholic
Church to be able to operate freely.
