It looks like the Duggar family from Counting On is headed to Australia, but they won’t be moving there. Duggar Family Blog shared an update on the Duggar family and what they are up to now. Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo spent their honeymoon there, but now it is time for some of the other Duggars to head there for a public event.

The fans in Australia are really excited to get the chance to meet the family. Jim Bob and Michelle are going and they are taking along 14 of their children. They haven’t revealed just yet which kids they are taking with them, although it’s likely they’ll take along the younger children and leave behind some of the older and married kids. The Duggars will be able to have a fun family trip, but it is also for an event to meet some of their fans.

The Duggars will be there for the 2018 IBLP Annual Family Conference, which runs from January 14-17 in nearby Lilydale, Victoria. They are actually going to speak at the event, which is exciting for those attending. On January 13, there is even a chance to meet them if you are in the area.

If the family is filming a new season of Counting On, then you can assume that the TLC cameras will be following them around while they are there. It would be great if they get to make a vacation out of this trip.

The Duggars are good friends with the Bates family. Not long ago, Gil and Kelly Bates took one of their daughters and went to visit Australia as well. The fans get to watch these shows there, but unlike U.S. fans, they don’t always get the chance to meet the stars of the show.

Nov 4th, 1992– A quarter of a century ago, this beautiful woman gave birth to a daughter– her biggest baby, 9lbs 15oz. And on this same day, 23 years later, that daughter would be in labor with her first child. When my mom finally arrived as I was laboring to give birth to Spurgeon, the first words out of my mouth were "HOW ON EARTH DID YOU DO THIS 19 TIMES?!" And I'm pretty sure the next words from my mouth were me telling Ben that I wanted the epidural after all, and P.S. "We won't be having any more kids." Once my baby was born though, I understood the reality of these words of Jesus: "When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world." – John 16:21 Thank you, Mama, for laying down your life for me, not only on this day 25 years ago, but also every day of raising me thereafter. I know I was probably your most strong-willed and hard-headed child, and it took a lot of patience to deal with me and love me through all my craziness. Thank you for reading the Bible to us, memorizing scriptures with us, and for showing us Christ from a young age. You are my hero, and I thank God that I get to call you my Mama.

So far, a new season of Counting On hasn’t been confirmed by the Duggar family, but rumors are flying and it sounds like it is coming back once again.
