Late Myles Munroe Son gives Speech

Today, at the Gobal Leadership Forum that Dr. Myles was heading to with eight others before the crash, his son Myles Jr. Chairo Munroe gave a speech about his parents death.

THE ADDRESS

I would like to take this time to address all of you here and everyone around the world that has shown their support and expressed their condolences during this difficult time. I want you all to know that in spite of the recent tragedy that claimed the lives of my parents, Dr Myles and Ruth Munroe, my Uncle, Dr Richard Pinder, our Chief Pilot, Captain Stanley Thurston, our first officer, Farkhan Cooper, our Youth Pastors
Lavard and Radel Parks, their son Johannan Parks and their unborn child and our their friend, Diego Santiago. We all have comfort in knowing that God is in control.
I know there are many questions as to how or why something like this would be allowed to happen to such great individuals, but still God is in control.
The past few days have been the most difficult times for my sister and I, my family and all those affected by this loss. We are all saddened by this tragic event, but we are comforted and encouraged by the outpouring of love and support we’ve received from everyone around the country and from those around the world at large .
I want to thank everyone that has called, that has emailed, that has messaged or that has just gave words of encouragement. We are truly grateful. I would like to make it known that though we are grieving our losses, and deeply saddened by this tragic event, we have never been nor would we ever feel hopeless.
There is no question in our heart that the spirits of the 9 persons who were taken, are now resting with our Heavenly Father . We rejoice for we know they are in a better place, watching over all of us and rejoicing among the heavenly angels.
We will not allow death to claim any victory but we celebrate the life and the legacy of each individual. This tragedy does not mark the end, the end of life, the end of a vision, the end of a journey nor the end of a purpose, but it marks the new beginning of an era. An era of a new generation that will carry on the vision and the legacy of my father and my mother and of each individual whose life was lost so unexpectedly.
So let’s not mourn their deaths but celebrate their lives and find joy knowing that although God may not explain Himself, He will reveal Himself.
In the words of my father, “The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but it’s life without a purpose.”  We know there is a greater purpose in all of these and we are now the vessels for this new vision and new legacy to be carried on.
So once again, on behalf of myself, my Aunt, sister, cousins, my family and on behalf of all of those who have lost a loved one this weekend, we say thank you for your kind words, your kind messages and your phone calls, we are grateful.
We are not hopeless, we are not mourning their deaths, but we celebrate their lives.
Thank you.
