It was a tearful goodbye as 19 Kids and Counting reality star Jill Duggar says farewell to her family.
Jill, her husband, and their baby have left for a long-term missionary trip to an undisclosed location.
In a video posted online, patriarch Jim Bob Duggar said: “We are going to miss you all. We’re going to miss baby Israel. We are so excited about you guys going overseas to be missionaries.”
A photo posted on Instagram showed them about to embark on their journey.
So excited for @jillmdillard & @derickdillard! They've been praying about and working towards this transition since late last year, and are so excited to finally be heading to the mission field! Please continue to pray for them! ❤️ And be sure to check out their blog at www.dillardfamily.com "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15
The trip comes two months after it was revealed that Jill and her sister, Jessa, were molested by their brother, Josh, when they were children. Josh was not there for the bon voyage.
