Subject: Congratulation & Thanks
I am Elie Mtanious Issa from Ghowaya. When i first knew about the website i didn't hesitate to visit it and really what i saw surprised me because when you say that you're proud to be kobayatian you should got a good reason to be & thanks God we got many reasons for that, but this webpage is the best for what it could offer for us & all people to see & touch the beauty of our land & nature, our knowledge & education, our culture & prosperity & finally our hospitality & great faith in God. So all that i can say good work & God help you to carry on your faithfull job until you & we hit the same target & enlarge this project that is the benefit of our gorgeous village.

الصديق المهندس إيلي عبود
بودي تهنئتك على موقفك الديمقراطي المعبر عن حسك السليم في قضايا الفكر، ففي تقديمك ل"صفحة" "كتب القبيات" ليبرالية قل نظيرها في عالم اليوم في معظم بلدان العالم الثالث. إن حرية التفكير والتعبير شرط لازم لتطور والوعي والشعوب. وهذا الشرط أنت تحاول تأمينه، وعليه تشكر كل الشكر.
ليس ثمة من شك بأن الحوار الفعلي هو حوار الاختلاف، وبأن هذا الحوار يحتاج بالضرورة إلى فرص متساوية في حرية التعبير. أشكر لك ما تبذله من جهود. وأتمنى لك دوام النجاح. وعسى أن نتمكن من المساهمة معك في تنمية حس الحوار والتواصل القبياتي - القبياتي، والتواصل القبياتي - العكاري.
تقبل خالص شكري وامتناني، وتقديري لجهودك.

C'est un plaisir pour moi vous écrire dès panama. Je vous envoie mille baisers pour les repartir à mes chers les kobayetiens.
J'ai reçu la nouvelle direction de notre page. Merci beaucoup pour votre beau travail.
Je vous salue, cher Elie, et vous demande: pourquoi la page web n'a aucune notice de Gharbieh d'où j'ai né ?? Avez-vous quelque problème? Enfin, vous savez votre travail.
Vos deuz frères : Jean Sassine Moarbes, et Michel Sassine Moarbes du Kobayat Garbieh, vivant en Panama.
We are still under construction and organization, our pages miss a lot of themes and subjects about our home town. We will cover more subjects and activities in all kobayat's quarters soon.

It is wonderful to refer to your web site and follow the latest news about our dear Kobayat. Even we are overseas, but our hearts, concerns, and feelings are still there with our parents and the Maronites of Lebanon.
God bless you and all our young generations who are our pride. Your father was my teacher in the 60's. He is a wonderful man, indeed I like him so much. You grew up in my absence and I don't know if you know me. Ask you dad, I am sure that he has good memory about his students.
I was with the boy scouts for years. Ask Pere Cesar, Fouad Salloum, Saad Gemma, Dr Tony Daher........My parents are currently living in Kobayat, Zouk. My dad is Adib CHIDIAC, my brother-in-law is Pierre CHIDIAC, Ghoyaya.
During the siege of Kobayat 1976 I was at Mount Laouka.
In 1988 I emigrated to Australia and dedicated myself to serve the Lord. I was ordained to the priesthood in December 1991 in Sydney.

Greeting from the United States.
I am Fr Bakhos CHIDIAC from Kobayat, Zouk. I am so happy that we have this website to inform us -who live overseas- about the latest news from our hometown we love.
I am serving the Maronite Diocese of Los Angeles. I am in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Please let me know if you are the son of my teacher Bakhos ABBOUD.

I'd just like to say congrats on this fabulous web page that you've created here.
I m from Melbourne Australia and i have just gotten the address and taken a look at the page myself for the first time. I think its great that you've decided to do this and encourage you to continue building it, and updating it with all the latest from our humble Kobayat.
I m currently forwarding the page to friends and relatives of mine here, and soon it'll be all over Australia! Keep it up!
From : Graziella Iskandar
It was with great pleasure that I have seen this web page growing that fast.
The one and only comment I had was: why not elaborating more the panoramic pictures of the village and some of its history?

I found out about you from my dear friend GK an truly I am delighted with your achievement. It is a practical instrument to keep us abroad in touch with our homeland news and events. My congratulation on a project well done. I would like very much to see more improvement in the future, and I am sure that is what you looking forward to achieve.
If I may suggest something, I strongly recommend that you open a facility for persons in Lebanon as well abroad to exchange email letters through your web site for the fact only minority have computers or access to the net in Kobayath. In our turn, you are welcome you or any person in Kobayath to use our emails in Australia to send correspondence to his family and friends.
I Thank you again for your great project an hopping to hear from you soon, until we chat again I leave you in God's care and wish you all the best.
