The pair began officially courting in 2014, video chatting for three months before Jill flew to Nepal with her dad to meet Derick face-to-face.
They announced their engagement that same year, tying the knot months later in June 2014. Derick and Jill are now parents to two-year-old son Israel, who was born in March 2015.
Last year, they began doing missionary work with S.O.S. Ministries in Central America.
