Passing Away of Rev. Dr. Hartmut Brenner

Hartmut BrennerIt was with great sorrow that we received the sad news of the passing away of Rev. Dr. Hartmut Brenner on 28/5/2020 in Germany.
Rev. Brenner was a former director of Johann Ludwig Schneller School and Theodore Schneller School in Amman - Jordan.
He was director of JLSS during the most difficult years of the war in Lebanon. He risked his life many times to enable the school to continue to function through extreme hardship. He was a wonderful friend of both schools to the last minute of his life. He served both schools through wonderful dedication and tireless leadership. He was greatly loved and appreciated. He loved Arab culture and the Middle East, and was a great scholar in this field. He was very friendly with a lovely sense of humor. When he had something difficult to say his outlook changed into a cautious stare of serious calm until he lovingly said what he had to say, and then very quickly, his typical friendly loud smile returned almost instantly. He will be greatly missed. His wonderful legacy in both Schneller Schools will always be there. We are sorry to lose a dear friend, a staunch supporter, a wonderful leader that nothing could stop from fulfilling his mission, and a great scholar.
Jesus said: I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!
