Members of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, are honoring D. Myles Munroe, the late Christian pastor who died with his wife and other members of his ministry during a plane crash last November in the Bahamas.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Munroe’s son, Myles Munroe, Jr, is slated to accept an award on his father’s behalf on Thursday at an event at the Jerusalem Waldorf Hotel, sponsored by the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus and Israeli Ministry of Tourism.
“His faith and love of Israel was an inspiration to all of us,” Knesset Christian Allies Caucus Director Josh Reinstein said at the time of his death. “Israel had no better friend, and the (caucus) was honored to work with him.”
Munroe and his ministry led tours to Israel twice a year, and he was a vocal supporter of the Jewish state.
The World Jewish Congress will also present a lifetime achievement award to Leif Wellerop, a Norwegian Christian leader with the International Christian Embassy-Jerusalem.
He has been a strong advocate of Israel for more than 30 years and launched a number of humanitarian projects in Israel.
