Duggar Archives: Central America

The Duggars have taken an annual mission trip to El Salvador for the past seven years. While researching, we stumbled upon a bunch of photos from their December 2010 trip, which included Honduras and Guatemala. These pictures belong to Richard Shoemaker, whose grandfather was Jim Bob's childhood doctor, and are used with his permission.

  1. Thanks for sharing these pictures! I can't wait to see more! Have a good week! :)

  2. Dear Lily and Ellie

    Great Pics!

    I have always wondered if they were planning a 2013 trip to Central America.

    Will Jill keep studying Spanish so that way she can visit her friend? I would love for them to see each other again I'm sure they would remember one another.

    Are they keeping in touch in someway?

    Thanks for keeping us posted and may God Bless you all.

  3. Lily and Ellie,

    I have been hearing from several sources that the Duggar's are in Puerto Rico! Also I read an interview online about Amy Duggar's music career and her new song and website coming out at the end of March along with a new season of 19 Kids and Counting which I already knew about! Susanna Keller had her baby on January 24th

  4. Have they gone back to Central America since then?

  5. Lily and Ellie,
    These look like old picture, are they? All the kids look very young, like Joy-Anna and Josiah.

    Thank you for not sharing about Anna. I think if I were her I would like to tell.:)

  6. love these pics! I love their shows when the go to El Salvador!

  7. Am going in July to el salvadOr for my mission trip in July if I get expected how was it. I can't wait I hope i get picked to go

  8. The older girls including Joy along with Mr Duggar are planning on going back soon and yes Jill does keep up with Einya and Jill is still working on her Spanish. Mr and Mrs Duggar went back to Central America with Mr and Mrs Bates in 2011.
