Kayla Mueller, who died as a hostage of ISIS jihadis, took strength during captivity in her faith in God and the love of her family, she wrote in a letter relatives released Tuesday.That conflict was but one of several where Mueller had hoped to make a difference.Since her graduation from Northern Arizona University in 2009, she dedicated her life to helping those in need across the globe from India, to Israel, to the Palestinian territories.In a birthday letter to her father in 2011, Mueller tried to explain the reason for her drive to serve others so selflessly.Mueller's relatives only last week revealed that she was in fact, being held by ISIS, after having gone to extraordinary lengths to keep it secret during her one-and-a-half year captivity.After ISIS last week announced that Mueller had died as a casualty of coalition bombing, her family continued to cling to the hope that she somehow had escaped death.
