Such an honor! This morning I read that on May 22, 2012, the highest ranking Turkish Foreign Minister, Ahmet Davutoglu and his wife visited the Metropolitan Iakovos here in Chicago. My book or album, ECCLESIA, Greek Orthodox Churches of the Chicago Metropolis, was given as a gift to the Minister.
It's such an honor my book was given to such a man. He will in turn bring it back to his country and have his friends view this important work (and perhaps decide to open the Seminary in Turkey, which was closed and all its assets were seized by the Turkish state.)
