Ryan McAdams for Congress

Ryan is a good friend and well-qualified man to make Virginia & America great again!

Ryan McAdams is a great candidate for congressman from Virginia!  I have known him for over 20 years. he was my son;s youth pastor when he attended William and Mary. I have spoken at his church in Williamsburg a couple of times and worked with him on a few things related to native Americans and prayer.  I am consistently impressed with his intellect, godliness and integrity.

I also know he has strong credentials working with legislators as head of the Virgina Prayer Caucus.  He understands the issues of regular people after being a social worker for about 10 years. I think he is a man whom God could use to bring God’s Presence and principles back into our federal government.  He is a man of much prayer who could bring God’s wisdom into many issues that only God can solve in DC and in VA!  His website is here. 

I encourage you to vote for him in November in the primary elections.

Do Convicted Sex Offenders Live Near You?

Be Kind, but Be wise. Know where they live, work and study

This map shows where convicted sex offenders live, work and go to school in parts of South Hampton Roads.

I know this is a sensitive subject.

Two things need to be said: These folks need our compassion. Most were probably molested and so they became molesters. They all need to be born again, almost certainly need deliverance from evil spirits, be baptized and filled with the Spirit to help overcome their backgrounds.  Jesus died for them and jesus can give them a fresh start.

But our kids also need protection from being molested by those who are still addicted to sexual crimes.  Go to this website to find out where these folks live, work so you can be aware of those locations to protect your loved ones and to protect the sex offenders from unnecessary temptations if possible.

May God help churches to bring salvation, healing and deliverance to these folks.  There is a ministry devoted to helping sex offenders get back into life after prison.  It is a confidential ministry I can put you in touch with if you contact me.
