I used that same plane same day shortly before it crashed – Steve Crown Reacts to Crashed Ethiopian Airline
On 10 March 2019 I boarded Ethiopian airline, flight 302 Bowen 737 MAX from Nairobi heading to Addis Ababa.. to join a connecting flight from Addis Ababa to Abuja Nigeria after a successful Program in Nairobi.
On arrival in Addis, we disembarked and joined an Ethiopian Airline flight Heading to Abuja Nigeria.
On arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe international airport, Abuja Nigeria, We began to hear a trending news of a plane crash in bishoftu that just happened shortly after takeoff from Addis heading to Nairobi killing all 149 passengers board including 8 Crew members.
I couldn’t wait to get back home because of the shock. On getting home I turn on the TV. It was all over the news and I checked my boarding pass only to discover that was the plane we boarded from Nairobi to Addis that had just crashed while returning to Nairobi with passengers on board.
I was in shock for several weeks that I couldn’t even speak about the incidence to anyone out there except my immediate family, and of course the fact that I’m an introvert didn’t help matters, because I am not someone who talks too much or put out everything on social media.. so on that note not many people were aware that I was on that flight that crashed.
I began to reminisce on my life, on how God has been faithful and keeps me alive and safe, because I’ve been a frequent traveler by Air, for a very long time and till date because of the nature of my work and ministry.
While in my thoughts and thanksgiving to God in my closet, God began to tell me I have preserved you for my Glory.
I Recieved this song ALL THE GLORY before this incident but it made even more sense to me after the PLANE CRASH God delivered me from…which I share with you again today.
Sincerely behind every song you see me put out there in the public space .. is from a place of a deep encounter.
Which means I simply will never take you on a journey I have never gone through. I’m not pressured to release songs because I need to be on your faces…I just have to hear from God first.
I believe many of us have mind blowing testimonies of how God came through for us in strange, impossible and difficult situations ..Trust me when I say this song ALL THE GLORY is sure a PERSONAL song for everyone.
