Our theme at TAM this year is Be a Hero, based on the book by the same title by Wesley Campell and Stephen Court (who was one of the leaders of the Territorial School of Music and Gospel Arts near Toronto last year. Stephen and his wife, Danielle Strickland led us into revival).
We're listening to a hero right now: Vergilio flew all the way from Mozambique to study the arts at TAM and to tell us about the work he does all over Africa ministering to AIDS orphans.
He said most of the people in Mozambique are HIV+, but still there is a stigma attached to the kids who's parents die of AIDS. The Salvation Army hires him to help the kids realize they're loved by God just as much as the other children.
