First stop was……………

This is Jill pictured with the Pastor’s wife of the next church we sang at in Palmyra, NY – Palmyra Bible Baptist Church.
This dear lady – Betty (to the right) follows our family and came to the church to hear us sing. She was such a sweetheart!!
I enjoyed the happy moment of seeing my sister – Amy Foster. Our family tried to be a blessing to the Foster Family while we were there by doing a bunch of projects and cleaning that Amy wanted done. Amy and I enjoyed the time of fellowship.
Amy with our baby Sofia.
We enjoyed a visit with David’s Mom while we were in NY. She came to see my sister (Amy) for the first time since the accident. It was a touching moment.
Ray and Patti Cobbs also came to visit. These people are some of the dearest people you will ever meet!
We love the Cobbs
Special moment with Grandma (David’s Mom).

Sweet Photos I got while there.
On the Friday that we were there, I planned a luncheon that any local ladies were welcome to attend to meet my sister (Amy Foster) and see her since the accident. Amy also shared her heart with us in a powerful, touching devotional and we also enjoyed singing a couple of specials together! Below are pictures of the luncheon and some of the dear people that came! THANK YOU to all who came and made the day SO special!!
Lisa is a lovely wife and mother to 6 children. She and her husband are missionaries to Zambia, Africa. Lisa’s and my parents were friends with each other before the 2 of us were even born. So, we go WAY back – LOL.
More dear friends – Betty Burlew
Amy and I take Plexus vitamins – all natural supplements! We LOVE the results of them! A group of ladies was at the luncheon that also sell Plexus. We had sweet fellowship!
Speaking of Plexus, if you are interested in how you can order some of these vitamins, please contact me (Jill) or go to my website at – shopmyplexus.com/jillrodrigues
I am excited that I ranked Silver in Plexus back in July 2016!!
We TRULY had a great time fellowshipping with the Foster Family while there and playing some games and visiting with them!
Our next stop was in Newark, NY – Lighthouse Baptist Church with Pastor Wilson and his dear wife (pictured above).
Love this lady!
We were excited when Jolynn (my Plexus upline) showed up at Lighthouse (along with her entire family) to hear our family sing.
Joel and Jolynn (along with their 5 children) took us all out for lunch. It was a blessing to visit with them!
Next Stop Was………….
Pastor Spurlock (to the right) had us come to sing for their Revival service.
This was the preacher – Dr. Sam Vallini
In the midst of all our intense traveling, our RV kept acting up. It would go up hills at a snail’s pace and we had to leave HOURS early to get places on time. David had tried to fix everything he knew to fix, but wanted a professional to diagnose the problem. Joel Catlin (a family friend and diesel mechanic), graciously traveled to our house (on their way to Texas for a Plexus Leaders Retreat) and help David FIX the entire exhaust manifold! What a blessing!! Now our RV goes up hills SO much faster! LOL THANK YOU, Joel and Betsy, for taking time out of your trip to help us!!
Fun fellowship with them while they were here.
Our last stop for the month of October, was at Sylvania Hills Baptist Church in Pennsylvania with Pastor Bailey.
On this trip, (after much prayer), we decided to invite a young man along – BEN VANCE – to travel with us. He has a heart to go into full time ministry and is excited for the chance to travel with our family to see what doors God will open for him! Ben travels behind our RV in his red truck and sleeps in the churches that we are at. We appreciate Ben’s heart to serve the Lord!
Jill, Sadie, and Mrs. Bailey (the Pastor’s wife).
It was Old Fashioned Sunday at their church and we enjoyed all dressing old fashioned.
Sweet people came to hear our family sing.
That wraps up our meetings for the month of October. In the midst of it all, we managed to squeeze in a few hours at a pumpkin farm. We had a great time as just a family – an occurrence that is becoming rare. LOL

Kaylee is great with babies!
In September, David worked tirelessly with our boys and constructed (by scratch) this beautiful shed! He did so, so that we could move all of our yard equipment out of our garage and expand our print shop! David and the boys did a GREAT job!!
Now, for photos of the garage print shop – where Gospel Tracts come clicking on this press!! It’s SO exciting serving Jesus!!
Thanks for reading and for following our family! We appreciate your prayers and positive support! It truly is an HONOR to serve Jesus!! There are moments our flesh grows weary of the busy pace keeping up with everything, but when we think of bowing before our Lord someday, we know that it is worth it all!! “It will be worth is all, when we see Jesus………Life’s trials will seem so small, when we see Christ. One glimpse of His dear face, all sorrow will erase………so bravely run the race, til we see Christ!”
With Hearts for Christ, The Rodrigues Family
