Dillards Do College Ministry

 Derick Dillard, Jill Dillard, Israel Dillard, Samuel Dillard

Now that the Dillards have recovered from Samuel Scott Dillard's C-section birth, they are jumping back into full-time ministry. (For those who missed their recent announcement, they have chosen to remain in Northwest Arkansas indefinitely rather than return to Central America.)

Most recently, Jill and Derick have become involved in C3, the Cross Church College Ministry. Not only is it where were Jill and Derick were married, but Cross Church is a very special place for the entire Duggar family for a number of reasons. (To find out why, click here to read a post we wrote three years ago.)

For those who have asked what will happen to Dillard Family Ministries, the entity is being discontinued, and Jill and Derick will no longer be accepting donations through it.

Michaela and Brandon Keilen

We interrupt our regular Duggar posts to share a post from our blog about the Duggars' long-time friends, the Bates. Michaela Bates and husband Brandon Keilen are celebrating two years of marriage today and had these beautiful photos taken by photographer friend Taryn Yager.

Recently, the Keilens have ministered to many by opening up about the struggles she and Brandon have had with infertility.

The athleticism of former professional soccer player Jeremy Vuolo is rubbing off on Jinger Vuolo. She recently got her first pair of Air Jordans. Hers are Retro 7s.
