Jill Duggar Dillard, hubby Derick Dillard, and son Israel are reportedly back in the U.S. from their Central American mission trip, for the wedding of cousin Amy Duggar. This is the second trip the family has made home from Central America since signing on to serve as missionaries there. They returned earlier in the summer for the wedding of a member of the Bringing Up Bates TV family.

Amy Duggar will marry Dillon King this weekend, and it is expected that the entire 19 Kids and Counting family--sans Josh Duggar--will be there. It's uncertain if Josh's wife Anna Duggar will attend, in light of her husband's most recent sex scandal.

On the Duggar family's Facebook page, Michelle Duggar posted some photos of baby Israel while Jill Duggar Dillard and her family are home visiting.

"So nice to have our sweet Dillards home for a visit. As you can see Israel has decided he loves Aunt Jana! He even got his first piano lesson!!!" two photos of Israel with Jana Duggar are captioned.

Jill Duggar Dillard recently asked for prayers for her extended family in light of the "sad summer" they have experienced.

Once again it's uncertain how long Jill Duggar Dillard will remain in the U.S. They will likely return to Central America following Amy Duggar's wedding. Just a couple of days ago Amy Duggar said she can't wait to be married, in part so she can change her last name. She feels Josh Duggar has forever sullied the Duggar moniker.

Perhaps some photos from Amy's wedding will surface, featuring Jill Duggar Dillard, Jessa Duggar Seewald, and other members of the former 19 Kids and Counting family. This will show fans the family is still enjoying life despite Josh Duggar's most recent sex scandal--admitting to an addiction to pornography and cheating on his wife, Anna Duggar.
