What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"In general he asked me in depth questions about my activities, work and etc. So for instance, he saw I'd gone to the Philippines on a mission trip. So he asked me what I thought was the general state of the country, and what I viewed as the main cause of the deterioration. So we got into a big discussion on history, which ended with us both saying we didn't really know the recent history of the Philippines very well. Stuff like that. " Report Response | I was asked this question too
