This morning, I had the privilege of interviewing Elias Chacour or as he is affectionately called Abuna (which means Father).
He started a school called Mar Elias in Ibillin, about 30 years ago. We are staying at the school through Tuesday and we will be helping kids with hearing needs tomorrow.
Today, we spent time with Abuna. He is a man of peace and love. He has won The World Methodist Peace Award and The Niwana Peace prize. He has also been nominated for The Nobel Peace Prize three times. On top of all that, in 2006, he was affirmed by Pope Benedict as Archbishop of Galilee ... which has to be one of the coolest job titles there is :)
What an honor to meet him!
