Finally, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have shared their experience of spending a long time in Central America. The couple was there for charity works.
?Overall, the focus of our summer mission team is nothing new, but rather to practice the example given to us by the earliest Christian missionaries in the book of Acts. ?Whatever we did was ultimately for the purpose of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that people may be freed from the bondage of sin in order to enjoy life eternal with their Creator and Lord,? Jill and Derrick wrote on their website.
The couple has confessed that their life in Central America was not easy. They had to face many challenges. But immense trust in Jesus Christ upheld their desire to serve people. The couple had organized youth conferences to reach out to those in the rural areas. The condition in Central America is different from Arkansas. There are a lot of crimes and political instability. People are facing socioeconomic challenges.
?We feel like we?ve made great advancements in just learning the culture and the language as well as building relationships with so many precious people. Our time here so far has allowed us to see many hearts touched, many souls accept the redeeming love of Christ, and many sweet people helped through humanitarian efforts. We believe our labors until now will serve as a strong foundation for many years of wonderful ministry in the days to come,? Jill and Derick wrote on their website earlier. ?
At present, Jill and her husband are in Arkansas. They will spend some time there with the other Duggars.
