The baton has been passed to Dr. David Burrows who is now the Senior Pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries. Kersh Darville, the new BFM Fellowship Pastor was appointed in April of this year, and Darville officially took over the same week Dr. Pinder died.
Myles Munroe Jr. spoke during the first service held by the Church since the incident, obviously touched and moved surrounded by his blood family and church family.
“I was gonna prepare a speech, but as I was getting ready this morning I just knew that I was coming to talk to family,” Myles said, holding back tears. “I figured I would just speak to family. It’s been the hardest week for my sister and I and my family, and everyone else that has been affected; and it’s because of family why we are able to stand here today,” Munroe continued.
“My dad always spoke about his belief in people, nothing else mattered but the people, regardless of how long he spoke or he travelled, he always made time for people. That’s just the kind of person that he was. And we sometimes take that for granted just because people are here every day and you just don’t think certain people won’t be here tomorrow,” he added.
“I encourage people this week to tell people in your life that you love them. If they mean a lot to you make sure you tell them. Don’t take for granted that you will be able to tell them tomorrow because tomorrow isn’t promised.”
“You really don’t know who is sitting next to you and what they are capable of but my dad believed in everyone and that they were gifted in their area of gifting.”
Chairo added, “It’s amazing that my mother isn’t here with us either. She was a helpmate, the perfect helpmate for my dad.”
This comes as newly appointed Bahamas Faith Ministries International Senior Pastor, Dave Burrows confirmed that a memorial will be held for Dr Munroe at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium on December 3.
