Kristel takes us on a journey through Star Street, the same road that Mary and Joseph took towards the Nativity Grotto over 2000 years ago. She talks to local Palestinian Christians and Muslims about the story of Christmas, Bethlehem under Covid 19 and also talks to fellow Olive branch, Fadi Kattan.

Kristel meets with Fadi Ghattas (Greek Orthodox), Georgette Loussi (Roman Catholic) and Dani Aqleh (Evangelical). She also chats with Chef Fadi Kattan

Kristal fell in love with Palestine and its people on her first visit, years ago,
volunteering her time with the olive harvest. She returned several times after, met her husband and moved to Palestine to start a family. Kristal lives in between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, where she feels the reality of the Israeli segregation wall every day.

At the moment, Kristal is studying The Tour Guide Program at Bethlehem Bible College. This has inspired her to further explore the history, people, and heritage of Palestine and has also influenced her to create the podcast “Palestine Stories,” in which she delivers interviews and shares inspiring stories of Palestinians around her.

There isn’t a place around the world where Palestinians aren’t making a difference and inspiring people every day, but MOR would like to highlight some Canadian Palestinians, who we should all be proud of – they have gone beyond the ordinary to reach where they are today and are doing great things for their community and for Canada overall.
