Dillard Update

 Jill Dillard, Joy-Anna Duggar, Israel Dillard, Carlin Bates, Derick Dillard

As we previously shared, Joy-Anna Duggar and Carlin Bates, both 17 years old, traveled back to Central America with Jill and Derick Dillard the day after Michaela Bates' wedding.

The primary purpose of the Dillards' weekend trip back to the United States was to film for the TLC documentary that aired on Sunday, so they were thrilled that the dates lined up with the wedding.

Joy and Carlin remained in Central America for two weeks and enjoyed keeping Israel company while Jill and Derick studied for their intensive Spanish classes. These classes have already opened doors for the Dillards to share the Gospel more widely.

"We are so grateful for your partnership and friendship as we work to bring many to Christ in Central America!" Jill wrote in a recent ministry update. Stay tuned for more photos!
