*  Please note: The recording tape jammed while filming Tom O'Connor's No Estamos Solos We Are Not Alone in Joy presentation - so the tape creased when rewound and consequently all footage of him in the DVD is somewhat unstable.  We apologize for this but have included footage of his presentation anyway because what he said was so useful and important.  It was difficult to find specific highlights because everything was so good.  Hopefully the choices made in this DVD will will help the work of IPCA and the Lord.
