1. Where did you grow up?

Lebanon.

2. What is your favorite Bible verse, book or story? Why?

Acts 13:22 is one of my favorites.

I am fascinated by, and find my life’s motivation from, God referring to David as a man after his own heart and stating that he will do everything he wants him to do, despite David’s sinfulness that was documented for all the ages to read and learn from.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

I don’t have a specific favorite, but I like to watch movies and TV series that have a plot that revolves around the U.S. White House and its politics.

It makes me feel good to see leaders that have to function in much more stressful conditions than mine.

4. Who are three of the people you admire?

The Apostle Paul, Barnabas and Mary, the mother of Jesus.

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

This may come as a surprise to some: I do have a heart.
