Jill Duggar Dillard is back home once again in Arkansas with husband Derick and their son, Israel. They have traveled all the way from the mission field in #Central America to have their second child. Derick posted a photo of the three of them sitting on an airplane saying that they were indeed back in the U.S. They all have big smiles on their faces and may even be relieved that they are home safe and sound.

Back home after a rough few days

Jill and Derick have spent their time working with the people in Central America spreading God's word, encouraging them, and becoming friends with some of them. Unfortunately, the violence there is bad, but the reality couple has stuck it out for a while now.

They had just written a blog a few days ago about losing one of their good friends who was kidnapped and murdered last weekend. His family is forced to go on without him. It can be a scary place where people in that area are afraid to even go out of their house.

Now Jill and her family are back home and spending time with the Duggars, and also with Derick's mom and brother. She is due for this new little one in July, so she still has a few weeks to prepare for her second childbirth. Israel will also be happy to be around his many cousins to play with. They will no doubt be doing some filming for "#Counting On" as well.

How long will they be in Arkansas?

Of course, the Dillard family will be staying in the U.S. at least until the baby is born this summer. But how long will they be sticking around after that? While they probably don't have any dates set as to when they will be returning to the mission field, it would likely be sometime this fall.

That would give enough time for Jill Duggar Dillard to heal up from childbirth and to make sure their new bundle of joy is healthy enough to travel that far.

There is always the chance that they would choose to not go back for a year or so, or they may also decide not to go back at all. Having two children in tow will be a little more tricky to handle. Plus the danger there is a big red flag and could be a factor in their decision to not go back there. However, Jill and Derick seem to be totally committed to their work in Central America.

Another new season of 'Counting On.'

Fans are gearing up for a new season of TLC's "Counting On' starting on June 12. Jill Duggar Dillard will be seen out on the mission field in Central America with her family. Also, the preparations for Joy Duggar and Austin Forsyth's upcoming wedding will be shown.

There is also a strong possibility that Josh Duggar will make it on screen as well. He has laid low since his molestation scandal, but may now be back as part of the reality show. What are your thoughts about that? Are you happy that Jill, Derick, and Israel made it back home safely?
