Jill Duggar has put on a good face about her husband’s continued mission work in El Salvador. But in the latest episode of Jill and Jessa Counting On, she revealed some real consequences of living in a dangerous country. She quickly posted a happy picture of her family on Instagram to counter the bad PR, but the clip already got the fans wondering if Jessa, Jinger, Jana, and other Duggars are worried about their star.
While Jill Duggar has been writing only good things about her stay in El Salvador on the family blog, it seems like that there are plenty of moments when she felt threatened for her and her baby Dillard’s life.
“Every week, it seems like there would be different instances because Derick would preach one night a week a little distance from our house, so I would be at home alone with Israel,” Jill said.
“One night, we were getting ready to go to bed, and we heard this loud crashing sound. Derick’s like, ‘You go in the bathroom,’ which is our safe room. We have our laptops, so we were messaging people back home like, ‘Pray for us. We don’t know what’s going on.'”
This got Jill and Jessa Counting On fans worried about the new mother. While the 23-year-old Duggar is back in the states, she and her husband Derick Dillard has made clear that they are planning to return to Central America to continue their work.
In the meantime, they are making the best of their time back home by visiting Derick’s alma mater with his baby.
On his Instagram, he wrote a caption about how good it was to be back where he studied.
“Beautiful weekend for #okstate homecoming festivities! Started off Saturday right at the ‘Sea of Orange Parade’ reconnecting with other Pistol Pete Alumni on our float,” he wrote.
“Sadly, this is also the 1-yr anniversary of the tragic parade crash that claimed 4 lives and injured nearly 50 more. In many ways the parade served as a tribute to the victims as well as the responders who acted so courageously. #homecoming2016 #homecoming2015 #stillwaterstrong #wewillalwaysremember.”
He certainly is feeling very proud of Oklahoma State!
Jill Duggar wasn’t the only person that was glad to be back in the states. The Duggars gave her a warm welcome back, her sisters in particular enthused about her return to safety.
“We’re all really excited,” Jessa said according to Us Weekly.
“For most everybody, it’s been nearly 10 months since they’ve got to hang out with them and see them in person. Jill and I have had so much in common over these past three years. It’s been difficult for me not to have that connection with her, sister to sister — now mom to mom. So we’re looking forward to having them back.”
This summer has been also a great time for Jill, Jessa, Jana, Joy Anna, and Jinger to reunite,
In fact, Jill got to be there for her younger sister Jessa when she announced that she is pregnant with her second baby.
“We are overjoyed to announce that Spurgeon has a new title in life as ‘big brother,'” Jessa wrote in her family blog.
“We are so thankful that God is adding to our family. 2017 is shaping up to be a wonderful year already and we know Spurgeon will do a great job in his new role. Having Spurgeon has been such a wonderful blessing and we cannot wait to see the face of this sweet new baby (or babies!).”
