Farewell, Dillards!

After celebrating 4th of July with family, Jill and Derick Dillard began a new chapter of their lives. They are headed overseas to begin full-time mission work. For security reasons, the Dillards have chosen to keep their whereabouts a secret for the time being.

In the following video, the Duggars pray for Jill and Derick before driving them to the airport.

Dillard Update

Jill (Duggar) and Derick Dillard recently announced their decision to begin international missions, something they have been planning for the past several months. They shared their plans with their families earlier this year and with Derick's boss at Walmart Corporate in May.

The Dillards have been busy preparing for their departure and tying up loose ends in the United States. They have also been traveling to visit relatives who have not yet met Israel.

There are rumors floating around about where the Dillards are serving, but anyone who reveals that information before Jill and Derick desire for it to be released is going against their wishes. For security reasons, Jill and Derick would like to keep the details of their journey confidential for the time being. The couple has requested prayer as they begin their journey.

After celebrating Independence Day with family this weekend, the Dillards left Arkansas. Here is a cute picture of the little family as they board the airplane to begin their new life as full-time missionaries.

Seewald Update

At 23 weeks, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald is well into her second trimester of pregnancy. That means Baby Seewald is the size of a large mango. Jessa and Ben recently found out the gender of their firstborn but are keeping it under wraps. Keep checking back for more updates!
