Dillards Spending the Weekend in AR

Just three weeks after traveling to Tennessee to watch Michaela Bates tie the knot with Brandon Keilen, the Duggars are gearing up for another wedding. This weekend, cousin Amy Duggar will marry Dillon King.

Jill and Derick Dillard, along with five-month-old Israel Dillard, have been serving Central America as missionaries since the beginning of July. They returned to the States three weeks ago to film for TLC's Breaking the Silence and were also able to attend Michaela's wedding. Now, they are back in Arkansas for Amy's wedding and a quick visit with family.

  25. So wish I could get an encouraging letter to you. I get so upset with people stomping on your wonderful family. I have found so many Biblical passages pertinent to your trial. Since I can't, Know that I am praying for God to give you the faith to arise above this. Josh will be restored to Be a strong Christian husband and father and testimony to God's love and grace.

  32. Just continue to pray for God's WISDOM and his MERCY and GRACE that you will be able to be all that he has made and created you to be. Ask that God forgive you for anything you may have done unknowingly that displeased him and that you will be able to learn and grow and be. Seek God's guidance as to whether he wants you to live your life IN THE PUBLIC VIEW or rather he would prefer you just take time to remove yourself from all the lights and cameras and simply seek his face via fasting and prayer. Only God knows his absolute plans for your life but you must make sure that you are seeking HIM. No fame or fortune, but HIM. Once you seek HIM, "The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it." Be blessed.

  42. I question how dedicated they are to their mission work when they are frequently returning to the United States.

    1. Why can't they have time with their family? It doesn't mean they aren't dedicated to their mission work. What are you doing today to help others?

    3. Wow! I would say you can be 100% dedicated to mission work and still help family/friends celebrate their big day.

    4. Being a missionary is about spreading God's word. Doesn't mean they can't come and go as they please. If that's the case then when youth missionaries go out once a year for 2 weeks you must think they are dedicated at all. God knows their hearts and that they are working for Him and He is all that matters!

    6. I was just thinking the same thing. I would have thought that they would have spent a longer period of time away with perhaps only one visit home in that time. At least that's what a neighbour of mine did. Makes sense now that they were able to take a young baby when it's so seemingly easy to go home. Although it's really none of my business, it must also be costing quite a bit to fly home as regularly as they've been doing. Really worth going in the first place?

      Delete
    7. Well, then it's a good thing they answer to God rather than people who "question" their every move.
      They aren't prisoners. Missionaries, pastors, preachers and church secretaries all get vacations too. Ain't it amazing...

      Delete
    8. I think a lot of us are wondering about their non-profit business & "missionary work." This will be their 2nd trip back home since beginning their little venture just a month or 2 ago. I know they were asking for donations. Most people who actually work 40 or more hours a week can't afford a weeks vacation @ the beach. Yet these 2 are asking people to donate their hard-earned money so they fly back & forth to weddings. When I wanted something I couldn't afford, I'd workba second job or go without. It would never enter my mind to ask anyone else to give me money. Aren't their people right here in America who could use their help? Why traipse across the globe?

    12. Really, how much have you missioned "anonymous"? Forty years ago when my uncle's missioned in Africa and Brazil, they weren't allowed to come home with their families to see their loved ones, but I'm sure that's changed in 40 years.

      How about quit judging people you don't know, and pray for their journey?

      Delete
    13. What a blessing it is that the Dillard's won't have to answer to your "questioning", but to God's alone.

      Delete
    14. PS the reason I asked was because they are asking people for money. People that give probably think the money is going for their mission work- not vacations.

    15. God bless this young couple. They obviously have a heart for Gods people. Praying God use them and bless in everything they do.

    6. As a missionary myself...we don't get to travel back much but mostly because of where we are located and the price of tickets...from Central America tickets are very affordable....I wouldn't judge people on what they do until you've lived in their shoes...it's unfair and you wouldn't want people judging you by what you spend your money on....it doesn't seem they are traveling just to vacation if they were doing that you would be seeing pictures of Disneyland or other such things....they are sacrifing time and energy for God and also time with family which is very hard to do (missing births, weddings, family events (good or bad) and other such things) please think before you judge their actions

      Delete
    7. well when they wee here last time it had something to do with the documentary, so I'm almost positive it was paid for by tlc. this time, either they've put money aside, planning this wedding trip for months or Jim Bob paid out. either way I have taken mission tripsbefore, not extended like their mission has been but one thing u can tell you, they could be there for years, and not return, right now they are blessed tho be able to do that!!!!

Everybody is flipping out like Josh isn't just a human man and because he's a Christian he can't make a mistake. Its called back sliding and the story of the prodical son shows God's view when we mess up well. Why punish everybody when really this all should show that Christians are still just humans and we do mess up. We do fall short

  72. I'm sure they are being wise in their spending and most likely saved money before they even knew they were moving to Central America. I don't believe for one minute they are acting like little Reverend Ikes(He was before most of your time) using the donations for lavish living. I can't believe the veiled accusations I'm reading!

  90. On another note, they also need to remember that Israel of only 5 months old (and recently) and his body cannot support him in how they seem to be handling the infant. ...and he IS an infant. Having him sit up unsupported as some photos have shown, having him "stand" on his legs, is not recommended as his bones are still "soft" and they need to understand spinal support is also not completely there yet. I am surprised at this family, who has boasted about they have so many children and are experienced in this.

In 26 years of being a stay home mom, I took off 10 days alone for the first time visiting my schoolmate and was also ridiculously questioned how inconsiderate I was to my responsibilities as a mom! I was totally irresponsible to" ME", I forgot me, forgot to live and see that I also needed to acknowledge my needs ... ... me!
    It is so important to recharge, you are relaxed, meditated and you give back happier and better, why ?, because you took a needed break for you!
    Bravo to Derrick and Jill for not being slaves to your work, and showing your son that he does have family to spend time with!

    I wonder if some smart tv station has realized that a reality show featuring Amy and her new husband, her parents and grandmother, and some appearances of her cousins (particularly the victims in the scandal) would be a hit. I hope they will consider that.

  103. I wonder the same as #3. My perspective of a missionary, along with many other things, is that you give up a lot of yourself to serve God. I'm not saying giving up things or family entirely, no. But when you make a commitment to the Lord you put Him first in everything. This may mean having to miss filming of shows or some family events, whatever the case may be. That's just the way it is when you become a missionary, at least in my eyes. It's a HUGE commitment and dedication. You need to be willing to put yourself/family 100% in your ministry. Isn't this what they prayed and yearned for? The Dillard's seem to go back and forth a lot to the U.S. and Central America. These are costly trips. Is that why they ask for funding? To pay for these trips? I thought it was to help supplement their living and ministry in their mission home? I just want to know facts and information before I send more donations. Thanks

  106. I've never seen missionaries come home so much. The ones my church sponsors stay abroad for years, if not a lifetime. It's a focused commitment, not a vacation, and you don't have random family members join you mid-mission for pizza and pictures. Very confusing as to why any church would allow that as part of a mission plan.

    ReplyDelete
  107. So nice to hear the wonderful news. Miss you all and god bless you. the baby is adorable and getting so big

    ReplyDelete
  108. I think it's likely that Jill's family is the major sponsor of their missionary work in Central America and are probably paying for their flights back and forth. Mr and Mrs Duggar were paid handsomely for each episode of their TV show, and Jim Bob owns a lot of commercial real estate. They may have even racked up frequent flier miles from their various trips over the years. I think that Jill and her family are a very welcome presence in the lives of the Duggar's anytime but now especially with such heartache and sorrow that have come recently. All of you who are questioning them on this ... please just pray for them and let it go.

  109. Mormons, Catholics, Lutherans -- all have missions that last years, with limited, if any, travel home. Mormon communication with family is also limited, for a purpose, so the missionaries can concentrate on their work. Some Mormons get 2 phone calls home per year, Mother's Day and Christmas. Travel outside their assigned zone or district requires review and written approval. So it should be understandable to wonder why other missionaries come home frequently for weddings or to tape TV shows. It's a legitimate question, and if this is an accepted style of mission life for this particular faith, then that should be made known to everyone up front, those who contribute money and those who are asked to pray for the missionaries.

  112. I am having a hard time understanding the "long-term" mission the Dillard's were asking people to give money for. My goodness they are home every few weeks. My husband is Military and we have been separated for as long as 18 months at a time on more than one occasion. Due to various bases we were stationed at our family has missed many weddings, holidays, graduations etc. it appears their long-term mission trip is nothing more than a vacation.

  113. Did everyone forget that Derrick spent 2 years in Nepal on a mission commitment. He has some experience. Mission boards approve who they're going to support. Jill is also contributing as a midwife. Let's support their service and let them Manage their expenses! I'm glad to hear they came home for Cousin Amy & Dillon King's wedding.

    1. I am one of the "anonymous". I believe when the Dillard's asked people for money for their "long-term" mission trip it then becomes public business. People have the right to know where their hard earned money is being spent. To continually fly the Dillard's back and forth every couple of weeks for family socials is not what most of us have in mind when supporting missionaries. I hope there will be accountability for all who have supported them.

  117. They are their own mission board. Derrick got a degree in accounting. Jill isn't fully trained yet. Neither have the language for where they are. Why not learn the language or get some theology in before leaving for a mission with so many Stateside commitments. They made it our business when they asked fans to fund it. Most the country belongs to faiths with mission programs that work very different than this and it's confusing so questions are asked. "None of our business" is a bit rude and to be frank, incorrect. If they just went to work mission without asking for financial support there would be less questions cause it's self funded. Just hate to see another scandal.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I wonder if Jill is having a hard time acclimating to life away from her family and living in much more difficult surroundings so getting back home frequently is her way of surviving the adjustment.

  119. So glad the Dilkards came home for the wedding. So great for Jill's family and Derick's to keep the family connection strong. Hope Amy had a wonderful wedding.

Not me.

  123. I'm so glad they get to be home for the wedding. I am not even trying to guess how she got the money. I'm just glad her parents or Amy's parents or whoever made sure she was there. it doesn't mean they've abandoned their mission, it means that her cousin any us important too her, and somebody made it possible too return home! happy for her!!!!! (& I will venture a guess that tlc posted for that last flight)

    The distance between Central America and Arkansas is not that big, probably only about a 2h flight, and therefore not that expensive.

  127. I think the Dillard's should do what they please with regards with their mission trip but by asking for money, they do need to realize that they are accountable for the spending of money received. A regular disclosure of where they are spending the money received would quiet all who are questionning their finances or perceived mismanagement of those charitable donations received.

  130. Yes, the Dillards are required to file with the IRS to show where the money is spent. The 990 will be a matter of public record that anyone can easily see on charitywatch or charitynavigator. So let's quit worrying about it for now.
