Subject: another marriage by faith

It's been 2 years since I left UBF. I was checking the Waterloo UBF website recently for any news about my old UBF friends, especially Andy Stumpf. Looks like they have updated with Andy's report about the annual Spring Retreat. In it, he mentions that he will be married at the end of the summer to someone named "Jennifer." It is greatly distressing to see my brilliant, compassionate old friend enter the next level of subjugation to UBF's will.
I want to pray for Andy. Who is his fiancee? Is she a good woman? I know that the brothers and sisters in Waterloo are sincere, humble Christians who only desire to serve - but is there any hope for them to see the truth about the organization to which they belong?
Incidentally, I cannot condemn UBF wholeheartedly. It is with a heavy heart that I must admit that in UBF I read the Bible far more often than I do now. Two years removed from the organization, I can start to see how UBF at least gave me some accountability for Bible reading and spiritual growth, while subsequent efforts to live the life of a disciple in mainstream church systems have met with much sin and failure. Although I know much more about freedom in Christ these days, I lack discipline. I wish I could find the middle ground.

Anyways, any info. would be appreciated.
