Among all, one aspect of the movement he has been particularly impressed with is its emphasis on high quality education and initiatives to make it available to those who, otherwise, wouldn’t be able to afford it. Second was the generosity of Hizmet (Gulen Movement) participants, which Lefebure has witnessed in person.
