On Tuesday, Dec. 4, the Duggars shared a group photo to their Instagram and Facebook accounts, showing the family, including Jim Bob, MichelleJanaJames, and Jennifer, along with some friends, standing in front of a sign that read, “Bienvenidos A Honduras,” aka Welcome To Honduras.

The family quickly got backlash over the post. “Please leave the locals alone. They have their religion,” one fan wrote, while another simply said, “This is just nuts.”

Others asked what missionary work the Duggars could be doing in Honduras, which is already a predominantly Christian country. “I don’t understand missionary work in already Christian countries. What do they do?” a fan asked. Another replied, “Try to convert people to the ‘proper’ form of Christianity. It’s crazy.”

One follower summed up the trip with the comment, “It’s that time of year again to go and try and push their religion on Catholics with a little bit of poverty tourism.”

This isn’t the first time the Duggars have traveled to Central America to spread their version of the word of Jesus. Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard lived in El Salvador with their son Israel to do missionary work, and Jinger Duggar and her now-husband Jeremy Vuolo began courting shortly after a ministry trip to Central America in 2015.
