AMAZING: BAGHDADI OPERATION NAMED AFTER CHRISTIAN MARTYR

Lord our hearts go out to this family at the loss of their precious daughter at the hands of her evil captors. We thank You for Your blessed assurance of where she is and for the example that she set for all of us.

The US military operation that resulted in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dedicated to Kayla Mueller, a young Christian woman who was kidnapped, tortured, and murdered by the Islamic State.

Mueller, 26, was abducted by ISIS in August 2013 in Aleppo, Syria after leaving a Doctor’s Without Borders hospital there. US officials said Baghdadi tortured and repeatedly raped her at his compound before announcing in 2015 that she died in captivity. Her body has never been recovered.

White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien told NBC’s Meet the Press” on Sunday that the operation against Baghdadi was named after Mueller.

“The chairman of the joint chiefs of staff named the operation that took down al-Baghdadi after Kayla Mueller, after what she had suffered,” O’Brien said, adding that Baghdadi was the “most vicious, cruel man.”

Her father, Carl Mueller, recounted his daughter’s last days in an interview with  The Arizona Republic shortly after President Donald Trump announced Baghdadi’s death.

“What this man did to Kayla — he kidnapped her,” Mueller said. “She was held in many prisons. She was held in solitary confinement. She was tortured. She was intimidated. She was ultimately raped by al-Baghdadi himself.”

“He either killed her or he was complicit in her murder,” Mueller said. “I’ll let people who read this article make up their own mind how a parent should feel.”

Standing Strong in Her Faith

Mueller’s fellow hostages, who were later freed, told ABC News in 2016 she never stopped caring for others and even defended her faith against the infamous British ISIS executioner named Mohammed Emwazias, also known as “Jihadi John.”

Emwazias oversaw three other British ISIS terrorists who were in charge of the hostages. Those in captivity called them “The Beatles.”

One former male hostage from Denmark, Daniel Rye, explained that Emwazias paraded Mueller in front of the other captives. It was also a chance for her to present an in-person “proof of life” by introducing herself.

“One of the Beatles started to say, ‘Oh, this is Kayla and she has been held all by herself. And she is much stronger than you guys. And she’s much smarter. She converted to Islam.’ And then she was like, ‘No, I didn’t,'” Rye said.

“I would not have had the guts to say that. I don’t think so,” he continued. “It was very clear that all of us were impressed by the strength that she showed in front of us. That was very clear.”

‘I Have Surrendered Myself to Our Creator’

Mueller also spoke extensively about how she relied on her faith in a hand-written letter given to her parents while she was in captivity. Mueller’s cellmates who were eventually freed gave the letter to her family in the spring of 2014.

Mueller wrote: “I remember mom always telling me that all in all in the end the only one you really have is God. I have come to a place in experience where, in every sense of the word, I have surrendered myself to our creator b/c literally there was no else.+ by God + by your prayers I have felt tenderly cradled in freefall…I have been shown in darkness, light + have learned that even in prison, one can be free. I am grateful.”

“I have come to see that there is good in every situation, sometimes we just have to look for it,” Mueller said. “I pray each day that if nothing else, you have felt a certain closeness + surrender to God as well + have formed a bond of love + support amongst one another.”

She ended the heartfelt letter urging her family to give their pain to God.

“Please be patient, give your pain to God. I know you would want me to remain strong,” she wrote. “That is exactly what I am doing… Do not fear for me, continue to pray as will I + by God’s will we will be together soon.”

  1. What an amazing, brave young woman, Lord! Give her family deep encounters with you that they walk hand in hand with you, and are covered by you, hidden in you, the miracle of forgiveness and love and your peace that Surpasses all understanding, Bless this family Lord, we love you Lord, thank you for this family!

  2. I am just so so sorry for your loss as a family. There are no words that can put meaning to this experience. Jesus knows and understands your pain. I pray that you will be comforted with His presence, love and the ministering of his angels.

  3. A true martyr. What can man do but kill the body? We belong to our Creator, a possession paid by the Blood of His dear Son, Yeshua/Jesus on the Cross. He endured the pain and suffering to purchase us out of darkness into His light of resurrection redemption. Kayla Mueller is a witness and a bearer of the crown of life for enduring to the end! This is the faith we are called to have…to the very end. But the end is only to leave this flesh behind, for the real person is their soul and spirit. Kayla is alive on the other side of the veil. In the faith of Yeshua/Jesus, there is eternal life and Kayla is already there, happy, healed, and free of all encumbrances, enjoying her new life. She set her steps in the steps of her Savior and found mercy, grace, and peace while yet in this temporary life. Some may have to follow this kind of pathway, but by the amazing Grace of our God, we can do all things in His strength. We are overcomers, as we see Kayla’s success. We are victorious in this life! The war has been won in the depths of hell, we must take the battles to victory and remind the inhabitants of hell that they cannot win! Continue to declare and decree the promises of Scripture that belong to us. Onward holy soldiers of the kingdom of heaven! Keep pressing on! We WIN!

  4. I am not surprised that there are no comments here yet as how can one find appropriate words after reading her words to her parents. Only Amazing Grace came to mind. And I then pictured Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego with Christ in the furnace… and thought of Christ WITH Kayla in prison.. as she said, ‘I have been shown in darkness, Light.’ May we agree with her prayers for her parents that they have a continued closeness with God, surrendering to God and have formed a bond of love and support amongst one another. Amen
