Dillard Family Update (Photos)

Jill and Derick Dillard are serving in Central America with an S.O.S. Ministries team led by Pastor Mike Schadt, who performed Jessa and Ben Seewald's marriage ceremony. Their ministry is thriving. Can you believe that baby Israel Dillard is already four months old?

  7. Jill and Derick, Thank you for caring about the people of South and Central America. Thank you for taking the gospel to them and for fulfilling the command of Christ to "go and tell the world". Our daughter adopted 3 little boys from 3 different countries. The oldest is from Guatemala and we heard yesterday that you were there at the same church that our friends attend. Our daughter and her boys will be there in 2016 at Easter time. God bless your family and your ministry.

  56. I know you are busy ! You don't have to respond to my comment! I just wanted to tell you that your family your whole family is so precious! I can read your blog or in the past I watched you on tlc and my day would just go more smoothly! I know this may sound weird but it's true! I find myself making better decisions in my daily life. I have bad siezures and my doctors say more meds and people want me to try marijuana. But I think it's prayer and looking to our lord is the best medicine! Don't get me wrong I still take meds I just don't have to take as many as I did. Thanks to our lord! And I just want to thank you for reminding me how wonderful our god is!

  67. As a missionary,did you build a school,church,hospital,etc.did you live among the people or in a nice hotel. Show me pictures of what you did

    ReplyDelete
  68. Dear Jill & Derrick, I was delighted to see photos of you, and Israel; he is growing so fast and is absolutely adorable. God bless you all. Although I have a slight disability, I wish I could join you in (Honduras?) to help in what ever I could. But I guess I will live vicariously through your adventure. Thank you so much for sharing your photos. I truly miss seeing all of the Duggars on TV; it was the best show ever!!! I hope that in the future you begin taping again. One thing that has been of great concern to me is something I saw on the internet yesterday, (8/3/2015) about Josh, and I hope it isn't true...please clarify, and ease my heart. Is it true that Josh was arrested? I really hope its all a hoax. PLEASE SET THE STORY STRAIGHT. Although I've never met you, you all hold a special place in my heart. I <3 you...God bless! Ana Montes, New York, NY

  71. I love and respect the Duggar Family! It was so nice to watch the family grow and see the normal everyday happenings. It is too bad there are so many shallow people who have pretended nothing bad every happens in their families? It happened to the
    Duggars and they handled it the best way their could and we forget that their son came to them and told the truth so he could get some help...What does that say about how these people live?

    ReplyDelete
  98. I wonder if the Duggars/Dillards/Seawalds have ever considered vlogging? They've already got a fan base, if they started vlogging I'm positive they'd do very, very well. Just a thought. It could be fun to see what the Dillards are up to with their Ministry in Central America, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  99. THANK YOU for the Pics I LOVE SEEING THEM... I would love to join your ministry in Central America

    ReplyDelete
  103. Loving this. My husband is from El Salvador and I often wonder why we as a country don't help more in some of the poorest countries closest to the U.S. So thank you Derek and Jill. I also want to say look at the sand. Some of the beaches in Central America are so cool -- there is volcanic ash in the sand and the sand looks gray/black. I always love it when we visit.

    ReplyDelete
  104. TY for sharing Ministry pics of you three. You and Derrick look great and baby Israel is growing so fast and is so adorable. I don't think he has a lack of attention! LOL God Bless and stay safe.

    ReplyDelete
  112. WOW! Seeing the Dillards serving in El Salvador reminds me of the times when mission teams used to come down to Ecuador to help build a school.
    It gives me the chills everytime I think about how close the Dillards are to Ecuador compared to the rest of the family. (This is said in a very respectful way)
    Maybe someday; God-wiling, some of the Duggars can come and serve in Ecuador.

    ReplyDelete
  113. How can they bring their innocent child to a deadly country? Do they know that the US embassy in el Salvador issued a warning against citii for the violence that is occurring there? I thought this disclosed location was for privacy? Guess they are asking for a death wish and I feel bad for that child. Irresponsible people how can they do that to their child?
