Kirk Cameron’s Wife is Grateful that James MacDonald is Back in Ministry

This evening someone shared with me a screenshot of Kirk Cameron’s wife thrilled that James MacDonald is back in ministry. The Kirk Cameron family is kind of like that bad stick of gum that keeps turning up for all the wrong reasons.

How Michael Holm a Former NSA Mathmatician Who Works at PicNix Inc. Helped Covenant Eyes Become More Like Oceania
