Munroe’s children have shared their gratitude for the support they have received in the days following their parents’ death.
In a statement online, Myles Munroe Jr and his sister Charisa write:
“We 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.
We want you all to know that in spite of the recent tragedy…we all have comfort in knowing that God is in control. We know there are many questions as to how or why something like this would be allowed to happen to such great individuals, but yet still God is in control.
We would like to make it known that although we are all grieving our losses and are deeply saddened by this tragic event, we have never been nor will we ever feel hopeless. There is no question in our hearts that the spirits of the nine persons whose lives 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 amongst the heavenly angels.
“We will not allow death to claim any victory, but we celebrate the life and 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 legacy of our father and mother and of each individual whose life was lost so unexpectedly.
“So let’s not mourn their deaths but let’s celebrate their lives and find joy in knowing that although God may not explain himself, he will reveal himself. In the words of our father, ‘The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without a purpose.’ We know there is a greater purpose in all of this and we are now the vessels for this new vision and legacy to be carried on.”
