Myles Munroe Awarded Peru’s Congressional Medal of Honor

by | Jul 12, 2012 | Charisma Archive, Uncategorized

Best-selling author Myles Munroe was recently awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his contribution to leadership development in Peru and other emerging Latin American nations.

In a July 2 ceremony held at the Congress Building in Lima, Peru, Peruvian Congressional President Manuel Arturo Merino De Lama gave the Bahamian author the governing body’s most prestigious award.

“We are honored and privileged to present this high honor to such a distinguished leader as Dr. Munroe who has positively impacted our nation with his dynamic and engaging leadership programs,” he said.

Peruvian Congressional vice president Michael Urtecho Media, who had recommended Munroe for the award, also praised Munroe’s books and leadership conferences.

“I can personally testify to the great impact his knowledge and unique wisdom can have on the individual,” he said. “His books have been a tremendous source of inspiration, encouragement and inspiration to me; I am proud to commend him to our nation as an honored global leader.”

Whitaker House has published several books by Munroe, including Becoming a Leader and The Purpose and Power of Authority. Destiny Image released Munroe’s Understanding Your Place in God’s Kingdom in November 2011.

Whitaker House President Bob Whitaker Jr. said Munroe was deserving of the award. “Those who hear him speak or read Dr. Munroe’s books are inevitably inspired and often transformed,” he said. “One beautiful thing about Dr. Munroe is that he’s as eager to talk to one guy in our warehouse as he is to address 100,000 packed into a stadium. He’s like the good shepherd described in the book of Mathew—he seeks that one lost sheep who has strayed and may be feeling alone and alienated.”

Prior to receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor, Munroe spoke to standing-room only crowds in Lima’s largest arena for a weeklong leadership training conference hosted by one of the largest ministries in South America, Agua Viva International.
