19 Kids and Counting Counting On couple Jill and Derick Dillard (and son Israel) are back in the USA after a ten-month mission trip to Central America. The trio was met at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport by friends and family, including Derick’s brother Dan Dillard and his fiancee — whom Derick and Jill had never met!
That’s Dan and his fiancee Deena in the photo above with Jill, Derick, Derick’s man bun (hidden), and Israel. Dan shared the photo on Instagram and wrote: “Finally got to introduce my fiancée to the rest of the family! Good to have them back in the states for awhile. #WelcomeHome #TiredNephew” Jill responded in the comments section by writing “Aw! We are so glad to be back! Thanks for waiting for our flight to arrive. Loved getting to see y’all!”
Here’s another photo of the four adults, with Israel being swapped out for Josie:
“So happy to be back home for a visit! #familyandfriends,” Jill captioned the picture.
Here’s a photo of Israel with both of his grandmothers:
“These grandmas are happy to have Israel home for a little while!” Jill wrote. “And he is spoiled to have family nearby again. ❤️????❤️” If you look in the background of the picture, you can see the TLC film crew was there to capture the moment. You can also see Jill giving what looks to be a full-on frontal hug! #scandal
According to The Duggar Family Fan Blog, Jill and Derick Dillard will be heading out again in the fall — I assume on another mission trip. The site adds: “During their time at home, Jill and Derick Dillard will work remotely with their ministry organization, partner with local ministries, and expand their knowledge through Bible classes.”
