Kayla Mueller – Heroic Martyr or Reckless Zealot?

  • Description: Kayla Mueller was tragically killed in an air strike targeting the terrorist group ISIS while being held captive by them. Kayla was captured while traveling between a hospital and a train station in Syria. In her home state of Arizona she was known by her family and friends as a kind, generous, selfless person who often traveled doing mission work and other humanitarian activities. Did Kayla ignore her better judgment and the advice of her family and friends in choosing to go to such a notoriously dangerous place? Kayla’s college ministry leader Rev. Kathleen Day joins us today to talk about Kayla’s life and witness and hopefully answer a few of our questions.
