Jill Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard have been hard at work doing ministry service in Central America with their son, Israel, but in a new post on their blog, the couple revealed that they will be back in the United States for a visit beginning in August.
"We are so excited to share that we will be returning in August for a short stateside term that will extend into the fall," the couple wrote. "We are really looking forward to seeing our families after nearly 10 months on foreign soil."
The Dillards added that they will be taking Bible classes while they are in the U.S., as well as continuing to work in ministry during their visit.
"Serving in Central America has been an amazing experience so far for both of us (and Israel!)," they shared. "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."
"Even while we are in the United States we will continue to work on behalf of the ministry," they wrote, "and the work in Central America will continue."
The couple also announced the news on Derick's Instagram, alongside a photo of Jill and Derick smiling together.
"We're looking forward to being back in the US next month!" he wrote.
