Photos: Dillards' Going Away Party

Before returning to Central America last month, the Dillards hosted a fellowship potluck dinner at Cross Church Pinnacle for those who have contributed to their ministry through prayer or financial support. One of our loyal readers sent us a handful of snapshots that he took at the event.

    1. Hopefully it is the same crew. They were part of the Duggar family from the very beginning. Can't wait to see the new episodes with Jill and Jessa. It still sucks that 19 kids and counting was canceled, but answered prayers and provided for that wonderful loving family. May God bless every single member of the family. <3 ^_^

  4. Whoops to you! The Duggars don't call it Potluck because Jim Bob doesn't believe in Luck :)

  6. I was a big fan of the show. But I do wonder like a lot of people, where Jill and Derik get the money or time off to always come home. They seem to travel more than they stay, especially since they were asking for money to fund the trip.

    1. Jill and Derick get the money to travel frequently back and forth from donations and whatever Jill saved from TLC. Plus, John David picks them up in Texas and flies them back home; saving them airfare.

  9. I pray that God will now keep the Duggar Family less attacked from outside haters wanting to stir up trouble. And if not, that they still remain a family united under God.

    1. The pics came from me, and I'm neither family or crew. It was for those who financially support Derrick and Jill's ministry

  16. You know what I pray? I pray Josh is getting real clinical help to stop his proclivity's for the perversion in his mind. I pray that he did not pass an STD to sweet Anna or to their precious newborn. I pray that Anna in know way feels guilt about Josh's horrendous acts. I pray for their children and how going forward with Josh back in their lives will affect them. I pray he never acts on those perversions again.

    I pray for the innocents affected by Josh and will always wonder if his parent's truly did right by him as a teenager.

    I think haters is a ridiculous term to place on people who disagree with what the Duggar's stand for or people's reactions to Josh. We can be repulsed and disgusted without hating.

    The trouble was made by the Duggar's, and Josh added more fuel to his fire.

  18. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos. The fellowship meal looked fun!

  19. Mr. Byrum, Derick's stepfather is just fine, IMO. He seems to want nothing to do with this "dog and pony show" that is the Duggars and their TV "ministry." The man is a wise one.

  20. I truly believe that the Dillards are well intentioned in their faith. However, it is insulting to all Christians, including Catholics, when their personal relationship with Christ is deemed less worthy than that of the Dillards, Duggars or Seewalds.

  21. Thank you so much for sharing!! Have a safe trip!!
    Please let Anna know to hang in there!! No one is perfect and we need to stand by our marriage vows.
    Basic Protestant Vows

    "I, ___, take thee, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God's holy ordinance; and thereto I pledge thee my faith [or] pledge myself to you."

    I understand its hard but if you believe in God. Then, you believe in your marriage vows. I've been marred 24 years and thank God for helping me thru the hard times. Now we are happier and stronger both in our marriage and faith. Stay strong. :)

    Also, congratulations to the new addition to the family!!! Babies truly are a blessing!!

    1. I am a devout Catholic...these are not Protestant vows... They are Christian vows. I spoke these vows during our marriage Mass nearly 23 years ago.

    2. I have been happily married fo 40years it has had nothing to do with any god or any other entity just being honest with each other and equal partners I am hoping that Anna finds happiness with someone worthy of her who will treat her with respect and as an equal She didn't get out of her marriage Josh did that all on his own.

  22. Josh broke those vows. Anna now has to protect herself and her children, however God leads.
