Jill Duggar is in Central America, working alongside husband Derick Dillard as a missionary. Back home in Arkansas, Jill's sister-in-law Anna Duggar gave birth to a baby girl this weekend. Jill is no doubt missing the excitement her family is experiencing.

Since Jill Duggar was in training to become a midwife prior to leaving the country, she likely would have helped Anna Duggar through at least some stages of her labor.

Jill had planned on delivering her own baby, son Israel Dillard, at home. Complications, however, sent Jill Duggar to the hospital where she had a C-section instead.

Jill Duggar and her husband recently updated their fans on their mission trip via their blog, saying the people in the Central American country where they're working are fascinated with their baby boy. It is unusual for people to see white babies in that country, so they have taken a great interest in little Israel. Jill and Derick also shared in their blog post about converting an elderly woman to Christianity--which is what their mission trip is all about.

Surely by now Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have seen the photo that Josh Duggar shared of new baby Meredith Grace. He took a picture of himself with Anna Duggar and the new baby and shared it via social media earlier on Sunday.

Josh also shared this precious shot of baby Meredith Grace.

Do you think the birth of Anna Duggar's baby is making Jill Duggar homesick?

It's uncertain how long she and Derick Dillard plan to stay in Central America.
