Just four months ago, news that Dr. Myles Munroe and his wife died in a plane crashed shocked Christians around the world.
In addition to devastating their children, it shook the congregation he pastored in the Nassau, Bahamas. But as Wendy Griffith found out, the church is now growing with a new passion to keep Munroe’s legacy alive.
Munroe was born in the Bahamas. It’s one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations: the white sandy beaches, tropical climate and friendy people make the Bahamas a little paradise on earth. And it was here, on an island just 21 miles long by 7 miles wide, that Munroe rose to international fame.
