30 Children! Thanksgiving! 3 Deer!

Hello to all!  This past Fall has been busy for us!  We hope you all enjoyed a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  We had my (Jill’s) entire family (excluding my nephew who is in the military) come for a FEAST at Thanksgiving!  It was a joyous day and the first time we have ALL been together since Amy’s car accident.  It was indeed a SPECIAL day!  Enjoy the pics below of our day.

30 Grandchildren from only 4 (Noyes) sisters and their beloved husbands!  We are SO blessed!

23275616_1956838121221198_613598313808873758_o

So, this will make 9 girls and 4 boys for the Rodrigues Family so far.  God is SO good to us!  We did a fun baby gender reveal to our children with a box and pink helium balloons.  Then, we (as a family) voted on a new name for our precious new baby girl.  We look forward to April!

Thank you all for your love and support to our family.  God is SO good to us all!  God bless you all and enjoy this beautiful fall weather!

 

P.S. We are THRILLED to announce that my sister (Amy Foster) and her husband and six children are successfully moved to West Virginia now!!  We are THRILLED to have them close by!  Last Sunday, they came over for a nice dinner and went to church with us in the evening.  Although life is much harder for them with Amy a quadriplegic now, we are thankful that they have a BEAUTIFUL home with the entire house on ONE level so Amy can roll around in every room.  They are as happy as they can be in this old, sin-cursed world.  We rejoice at God’s Goodness in every way.

With Love to You All,  The Rodrigues Family

Jill’s PERSONAL exciting news AND all about the last 3 churches we have visited- including the Duggar’s Church 2 weeks ago!

I (Jill) have VERY exciting news to announce!  I am passionate about a health and wellness company called – Plexus!  I have been with them a little over a year now and hit the first rank (Silver) within the first 2 weeks.  Well, about a year later, I am THRILLED to announce that I have hit the NEXT rank called – GOLD!  I am SOOO excited and have worked tirelessly to make this happen!  Thank you also to the INCREDIBLE team that I have under me that helped me make this happen!  Also a HUGE thank you to my faithful, supportive upline – Betsy Caitlin – who has been there for me every step of the way!

Friends, are you looking to get healthy and help some of your nagging health problems?!  Perhaps Plexus could be that answer to prayer for you!  These are AMAZING all natural products that I just LOVE!  They have helped me in too many ways to count!

Secondly, Are you looking for an incredible way to earn money from home?  I am telling you, Plexus is SO generous with their compensation plan and you DON’t want to miss this chance of a lifetime!  What can I say??  Only in America do we have these AMAZING opportunities to succeed!  I am blessed beyond measure and I would LOVE it if you would join me in this journey!  Please message me for details!  -Jill  (304) 303-805620800367_1925091171062560_3980675109416979736_n21122434_10214475806675381_1915641640772155338_o

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have stayed VERY busy in our travels and I am SO excited to be expecting baby #13!!  My sickness is coming on stronger every day, for which I am SUPER grateful!  It shows to me that it is a healthy pregnancy!!  I have had a couple of scares, but my family’s undying faith that this baby will be FINE really blesses my heart.  My son Timothy wants to leave for Bible college next summer after he graduates from high school.  He has been specifically praying that God would bless us with another baby (especially boy – if God wills it) BEFORE he moved from our home.  I am ECSTATIC that God has answered his prayer!!  Please continue to keep this precious baby (who is already SOOO loved by our family) in prayer for safe keeping in my womb.20882813_1926564130915264_3452546817301679254_n

2 weeks ago we visited the Duggar’s church – Lighthouse Baptist Church – with Pastor Caldwell and precious church family.  We sang and presented our ministry there.  It was our second time there, and we ABSOLUTELY LOVE what that church stands for!!  Pastor Caldwell preached a sermon on modest dress for ladies, and it blessed our hearts OVER and OVER again!  They are SO like-minded with our family!  We have not heard that good  a message on those issues in a long time!  Thank you, Pastor Caldwell, for your stand for righteousness, NO MATTER the criticism you may get for your righteous, Biblical stand!!  You inspired our family!!  Below are some of our pictures from when visiting there.  It was a precious, special day and we enjoyed a quiet dinner afterward with the Duggars at their lovely, hospitable home.  We thank GOD for the TRUE friends we find in our travels!!

Rodrigues Baby #13 On the Way!! LAST DAY to register for Ladies Retreat!

Today (August 17) is the LAST day of registration for the Joyful Sisters “Peace” Ladies’ Retreat!  You can call all the way up to 12 am tonight to register!  (304) 303-8056  ***We want you there, so PLEASE call! Thank you!

Sincerely, Jill Rodrigues, Amy Foster, and Angie Hillegass20863296_1925023707735973_6228227736745063717_o

Also, David and I are THRILLED beyond words that God has chosen to open my womb again and give us our 13th child (really 18th child due to me having 5 hard miscarriages). Is it easy raising so many children? NO….not easy- but VERY rewarding! When I saw the pregnancy test read “positive”, I looked toward Heaven and said “Thank You” to God TONS of times.

God’s Word tells us that children are an heritage of the Lord and the fruit of the womb is HIS reward. <3. Why would we EVER want to turn away a precious gift from God?

Honestly, I wish you could have seen our children’s reaction to the news. <3 There was screaming for joy, jumping, laughter and smiles! When we tell our children that we are expecting another sibling, it is LITERALLY the HAPPIEST time I almost EVER witness in our home!

Why? Doesn’t it mean one less “chicken leg” for them to eat? Perhaps one less frivoulous item that we can’t afford to buy for them? A Mama who will need lots of extra help during the “sick” months of my pregnancy? Yes…all of the above. But, if that is our focus in life…..a temporal moment of satisfaction, then I have failed in raising up a generation that focuses on the eternal. Another SOUL to raise up for the GLORY of God, is SO TOTALLY eternal!

I don’t FORCE an excited response from my children. It just naturally bubbles up out of their unspoiled, joyful souls! They can’t WAIT to hold this baby already! Olivia and Sadie were battling over who got to “feel” my tummy next! I told them all they are feeling right now is my fat. LOL. But, they are SURE it MUST be the baby! <3

I told David by saying, “Are you ready for baby #13?” He HONESTLY is the BEST man in the world! He looked at my face with SUCH joy and then hugged me with passion and tenderness! Does it mean more pressure on him to make sure he provides well. YES! But, He is a man of GREAT and RARE faith! He knows that we serve a BIG God that will never leave us begging bread! “David, I love you to the moon and back again!” <3 You are a RARE GEM! Thank you for trusting God and for always taking good care of me and the children! <3

I walk around on CLOUD NINE…..knowing that there is a little treasure floating around and growing inside of me! The MIRACLE of life NEVER ceases to amaze me…..no matter how many times I go through it! <3

I just want to take a moment to brag on my God!
*HE IS THE KING OF KINGS & LORD OF LORDS
*HE IS THE BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR!
*HE IS THE FAIREST OF 10,000
*HE IS EVERYTHING TO ME!
*HE IS THE LILY OF THE VALLEY
*HE IS MY SAVIOUR!
*HE IS OUR PROVIDER!
*HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA!
*HE IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END!
*HE IS THE GIVER AND TAKER OF LIFE!
*HE IS ABLE!
*HE IS MY GOD!! Hallelujah! What a Saviour!

Raising Up a Generation For HIS Glory,
Jill Rodrigues. (& Family)  20863582_1925064141065263_8784146659669290660_o

Busy, Busy! REGISTRATION for Ladies MTG closes in 5 days! Visiting the Duggars. Etc.

Hello, friends!  We are going to try and start to do weekly updates on our family, time permitting.  This past month has been SO busy as we have been on the road for a month now and when we get home, we will only be home for 6 days.  Due to my parents getting their new home built down the road from us, they are staying in our house right now.  So, when we get home, we will probably continue to let them stay in our home so they do not have to uproot to the RV for only 6 days.  It will still be nice to be home though for a few days.

It is good that we are headed home though because my husband has LOADS of work to get caught up on in the print shop.  God continues to grow our printing ministry and on this trip, we got another financial supporter!  So, now we are down to needing 9 churches to take us on for support to get to our goal. Praise the Lord!!

We are thankful for this last trip……which is not over quite yet.  We were able to accomplish a LOT and visit a LOT of churches.  We traveled to the states of Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, and Arkansas.  We were able to minister to others on this trip and also work at Preach Evangelistic Ministries in Missouri for a few days.  Below is a picture of my husband and boys working there. 20728182_1922603501311327_9070855623677955135_n20663964_1922603561311321_7962198539021202507_n

I am only enclosing a FEW of the pictures of our trip to save space and time.  We are excited to be presenting our ministry at the Duggar’s church (Lighthouse Baptist Church) tomorrow……that is what brought us to Arkansas.  We are SO thankful for the Duggar’s hospitality to our family over the course of the last couple of days in allowing our family to park in their driveway.  We had a TON of laundry to get caught up and the Duggars were gracious in allowing us to use their 4 washers and dryers!  When I say this, I do NOT say it lightly….the Duggars are the NICEST, most sincere people you will ever meet!  I get tired of all the hate and vicious lies spread about them.  Michelle is the most WELCOMING, kind, loving lady I have ever met.  She is FOR REAL!!  Her and her husband have done a GREAT job in raising up wonderful children that respectfully answer with – YES SIR and YES MA’AM!  They constantly open up their lovely home in generous hospitality!  We have not taken pictures while here to respect their privacy, however, here is a “picture of excitement” as we drove into their driveway.

Okay, so are YOU considering coming to the Ladies Retreat in October?  If so, REGISTRATION CLOSES August 17th!!  You only have a FEW DAYS LEFT to register!  Please call TODAY to get your room reserved!!  Here are a couple of flyers below telling more about it and what number to call to register!!20748177_1922090444695966_2053364538500457007_o20615970_1920533048185039_6763332668398320089_o

God is SO good to us in allowing us to enjoy family moments as we travel.  We have visited the “ARK ENCOUNTER” , Mall of America, 2 different Bible Colleges we were checking out for Timothy, enjoyed the lakes in Minnesota at 2 different VERY hospitable people’s homes that lived RIGHT on the beautiful lakes, etc. etc.  We work, but then, God gives us a day off (now and then) to just enjoy His creation and each other.

I am continuing on strong in my Plexus business!  I hope you take a moment to read my testimony below of how that is going.

*** I (with a passion) am looking for 3 (or more) stay at home Moms that have always wanted a successful business from home! 🙂 Ladies, I am a cosmetologist and have done hair from home for years. However, this new business endeavor of mine has far surpassed my success as a hairstylist!

It makes me feel good knowing I am home, cleaning, cooking, taking care of my babies, homeschooling, etc……..YET, still running a successful business from home. Does it take work, yes…but the rewards FAR outweigh the work involved. 🙂

It blesses my heart to be a blessing to my husband. For nearly 20 years now, my husband has worked his tail off so I could stay home. Was it easy? Never! But he’d work 2 jobs…..or whatever it took, to keep me home to raise up a godly generation for Christ. <3

All that to say, it feels good to me to give back a little! “We need gas? Yeah! I just got paid! Here is $100 for gas, Babe!” He then looks at me with admiration on his face. “If ANYONE can be successful at this business, it’s YOU, Babe,” he glowingly responds to me. 🙂

My goal is to be that Proverbs 31 woman. If you read that chapter, it speaks of her hard work ethic and diligence within the home. She was not a couch potato Mama that watched the junk tube (TV) all day. She rose and worked willingly with her hands! <3

Now ladies, what is your passion? Do you want to bless your husband and children and HELP towards the financial success of your home? This is SOOO doable and I would coach and help you every step of the way. Honestly, this is one of the MOST BRILLIANT ways to earn money!

This is NOT a scam – or “truthful to a fault” Jill (me) would tell you! LOL. This is the REAL deal! A business endeavor that could change your lives!

PLEASE, ladies, wait NO longer! I KNOW trying new things can be scary! I remember being in your SAME shoes a year ago. But now……well, it is one of the BEST decisions I have ever made! Let us link arms together and be that Proverbs 31 woman TOGETHER! <3

***Please message me today on how to get started. It is SO easy! Lots Of Love, Jill

THANK YOU FOR READING AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!!

Below are some more pictures of just a couple of the MANY churches that we have visited along with many more fun pictures.  Enjoy!

It is a JOY serving Jesus.  Do we ever have bad days?  OH YES!  There are times I FALL to my knees at night and cry out to God for strength and help for tomorrow to be a better day.  Sometimes the spiritual warfare against our family feels SO thick you could practically SLICE through it.  Praise God that we CAN be the VICTORS through the Sword of the Spirit!

Many times David and I look at each other and just pour our hearts out to each other with tears streaming from our faces.  We CHOOSE contentment!  We CHOOSE joy!  We CHOOSE peace!  We CHOOSE to put all the GOOD before our followers.  However, behind closed doors, we fall to our knees BEGGING God to help us be successful at this thing called LIFE.  We recognize that the ONLY thing that will matter when we fall before the Lord someday in Heaven, is our sincere service to Him and His work!  Please do not cease to pray for us.  Our hate followers are many.  However, we take that as a compliment.  They are people that HATE God’s Word the Bible and despise those that follow it.  We are encouraged though when we remember that we are blessed when men shall revile us for HIS (Jesus’) name sake.

Sometimes I want to crawl back into a hole, NEVER to put my life or family in the spotlight of scrutiny anymore!  However, to do so, would make Satan have a HAYDAY!  He hates families that are doing a work for Christ with a PASSION!  He does NOT want families being a light for Jesus!!

We encourage EACH of you to rise up with a passion to raise up a GENERATION for Christ!  STAY YOUR COURSE!  Set your face like a FLINT!  Determine in your heart to do right – like the prophet Daniel.  And like our dear friend Paul Miller puts it – SOLDIER ON!!!! (for our redemption draweth NIGH!!!)

All Praise to Jesus,  The Rodrigues Family 20729543_1923023134602697_3204638370535299945_n-120708225_1922245924680418_4610173864772022711_n20664621_1922245938013750_6007051057285070381_n20664691_1920841838154160_6640153258215071676_n20664010_1922246021347075_4662701326462174376_n20597468_1920078201563857_5679425625894666196_n20621092_1920842101487467_6552244722041717524_n20708375_1923023171269360_4023827414303908243_nLSP_2640aLSP_2709LSP_2724-2

NEW System! Busy, Busy!! Amy Foster NEWS! Latest Prayer Letter! May 5, 2017

Greetings to our followers!  We are SO happy and thankful that you pray for and follow our family and ministry.  We wanted to let you know that we have been VERY busy the last few months with traveling, being involved in ministries around home, printing jobs in our print shop, and……well, should we go on?  LOL.  The list could go on for some Website covertime!!

We are SO thankful to be busy in the service of the King!  Our calendar continues to be VERY full and hence the new system we mentioned above.  In the past we have posted our itinerary so that you could all see where we would be and come meet us at the church we would be at, if it was near you.  However, it takes so long to type all that out to post and we are trying to cut back on things that rob our time.

We plan to continue to post about our trips AFTER they are over, and keep you updated on how we are doing and what God is doing in our lives.  So, please stay tuned for those updates in the future.

This past winter was VERY busy with a LONG trip to Florida that was JAM- packed with meetings.  God was good and we met many new, lovely Christian people.  It is TRULY an honor to serve Jesus!

We have some VERY exciting news about KEVIN and AMY Foster!!  Well, IT IS OFFICIAL!!! Kevin and Amy and children are MOVING TO WEST VIRGINIA!! We img_1708(the Rodrigues Family) and my parents are THRILLED! It really wasn’t on our radar that they would consider it here due to the bad memories with the accident, etc. However, my brother in law (Jordan Hillegass- Angie’s husband) found the PERFECT property with a house and outbuildings on it that is absolutely IDEAL for the Foster’s situation and desires. It is only about 45 minutes from where we live and the perfect location for Kevin to re-build his lawn care and snow plowing business. We are excited that we can see them more often now and help them when needed. Amy is SO glad to be nearer to her family and we are SO proud of Kevin. He is an AWESOME provider and still has ZERO debt – even with having purchased a beautiful home and property of over 200 acres!! PRAISE THE LORD that our family is all getting back together again! We SURE do love each other! Thank you, Jesus, from Whom ALL blessings flow! They will probably move here sometime this summer. Can’t WAIT!!

Our beautiful daughter – Nurie – GRADUATES!

To Our Precious Daughter – Nurie……..

LSP_2845We are SO pleased to announce that our SWEET Nurie will be graduating from High school this June. We have home schooled her from the start and she has been a JOY to raise and SO obedient and pleasant!!

David and I have said OVER and OVER that we are SO thankful for the GODLY example she sets to her younger siblings! She has exemplified EXTREME diligence in every area of her life and for that, we will FOREVER be grateful to her.

We are thankful that Nurie is a chaste, virtuous woman that has EVERY desire to serve LSP_2838God her WHOLE life long and to stay pure until she marries “Mr. Right”…….

Nurie fervently prays for the man of her dreams to come into her life in GOD’S timing. Until then, she is TRULY a very content person. Nurie plans to continue to travel and sing with her family. We are thankful for that, because she is one of our most musical children. It will leave a gaping whole when she is gone. LSP_2857 Also, Nurie looks forward to investing more time in her younger siblings and helping her Mama homeschool them.

Nurie is planning to go on a Missions’ Trip to Botswana, Africa with David (her Dad) and some others in January of 2018. She is in the middle of raising the money for that trip. JUST for the plane ticket, it will cost Nurie at least $1,600. YIKES!

To be honest, with being on the road so often, Nurie has very few ways to raise much money. If anyone would like to consider (for a graduation gift) sending her money to help cover the cost of her missions’ trip, I KNOW you would bless Nurie’s heart beyond words!LSP_2828

So as you can see, while Nurie looks VERY forward to the wedding of her dreams someday, she plans to keep herself busy in the work of the Lord until that joyous day comes.

We are THRILLED that Nurie’s desire to find a GODLY young man is VERY important to her. We asked her to compose a list (before she graduated) of a list of attributes that she has prayed about finding in a young man.LSP_2820

It blesses our hearts to share that list with you below………

“What I Am Looking For In My Future Husband”

-A man that is godly and who will follow God’s will for his life – NO MATTER WHAT!!

-Someone that stands on the same convictions / standards that I do.
A. Believes in the KJV Bible as the preserved Word of God.
B. Has a high dress standard. (Ladies wear skirts and overall modest apparel for both the man and woman).LSP_2801
C. Letting God control my womb in how many children He gives us.
D. Believing that my husband should lead the home.
E. Believing in godly, conservative music that honors God, rather than my flesh.
F.Being faithful to church and understanding that “home church” is not Biblical according to – Hebrews 10:25
“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
G. Believing that home schooling any future children God may give us, is the best plan according to – Psalms 1:1 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

-A man that has a heart to win lost souls for Jesus.

-A man that has kept himself pure.

***To any younger girls out there, we hope this inspires you to wait for God’s BEST for you! LSP_2775

Nurie, our special first born, you are our angel – sent from God above to our home. We want to cherish each moment that God allows you to stay in our home until the day we walk you down the aisle. We are thankful for your EXTREME maturity as the oldest of 12 children and your flexibility to sometimes stressful, busy situations. You are a blessing to us. We are thankful for all the delicious meals that you cook for our large family and for the scrumptious desserts you bake us. Ymmm!LSP_2757

We don’t know how else to honor you at this joyous time of your graduation (coming up) other than to tell you – YOU ARE PRICELESS to us and we will pray for you until the day you die!!

Forever With Love, Daddy and MamaLSP_2736LSP_2709
