This is open the door to invite him for coffee the following week and we’ve done so.
We’ve met at Panera Bread and spent about two and a half hours talking about our life and I surprised with the knowledge and the high level of education he has, before the conflict in Syria he was working for 30 years as professor and practice physician, he worked as a professor in neurology in Damascus Medical University in Syria as well as the head of neurology department for 7 years at one of the hospitals in France.
We talked a lot about the Middle East; he was very open and has courage enough to blame the Muslim about all the massacre that is happening in Middle East; he kept criticizing the Muslims and was wondering how they kill by the name of God, and what kind of religion that encouraging their followers to kill and persecute anyone is different than them and don’t believe in what they believe, he ended saying that he feels embarrassed of being Muslim.
He feels lonely as he doesn’t have any friends except his wife and his son but his son working full time as a fellow worker at Mayo Clinic I asked him if he has any if you know any Americans his answer was no not at all encourage him and I asked him if he’s willing or open if I introduce some of the Americans to him and he was open to the idea, one of the reason course is learning English or practicing English but in the other hand he needs people around him.
I’ve asked some of the volunteers to contact him and I will arrange a meeting this week to meet him and introduce him to some of the volunteers in order to share the Gospel with him, he seems very open to hear the good news but I did not want to start right away.
Pray that he can find a job as he applied at many places but because of the age he has a little chance.
