I admire the courage of this woman who identified the liberty wherein Christ has set us free apart from the hutterite cult that holds people captive to dark age concepts wherein one "hopes" for eternal life without the "substance" of things hoped for...which is faith, may God rest her soul as a pioneer of the ex-hutts who wasn't afraid to sell out her comfort of colony life for the gospel.
