I found this course deeply enlightening, especially how ancient the land of Syria really is. It is unfortunate that Hafez al-Assad came into power and promised better education, the open door for tourists and a stable government that failed to come to pass. There are many pilgrims who would love to visit Damascus, the city that Paul was headed towards when he encountered Christ. This definitely opened my eyes to the evil stronghold that the current leadership has over its people and land.
