Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick marked the passing of their first month serving as missionaries in Central America on Wednesday.

The former 19 Kids and Counting star shared word of their celebration via social media.

Sharing a picture of herself with her hubby and their four-month-old baby boy Israel, Jill Duggar thanked those from all around the world who have prayed for their success as missionaries.

"¬°Hola amigos! Thank you for your prayers and support! It's been one month since we departed the U.S. for Central America," she captioned the happy shot.

Jill Duggar also shared the link to the website she shares with Derick.

Jill Duggar wasn't the only family member to share their missionary experience on social media. Derick Dillard posted a picture on Instagram as well.

"One month ago today we arrived in Central America! It's been quite the adventure adjusting to life here. Thank you for your prayers and support! To keep up with our family, checkout dillardfamily.com/blog," he captioned the photo of himself with Jill and Israel in what looks like a public market.

Fans are no doubt thrilled to get these update on Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard, and to see photos of how much baby Israel has grown in the past month.

Jill and Derick left the U.S. after the Josh Duggar sexual molestation scandal hit the media, but before TLC cancelled her family's reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.

Do you think semi-isolation in Central America might be best for Jill Duggar at this point in time? It certainly sounds less chaotic and angst ridden that what her family--most especially parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar--are experiencing back here at home.
