Fans have left comments on social media questioning why Jill, Derick and baby Israel have been traveling so much recently when they were supposed to be on a “long-term mission trip” in Central America.

When they announced they were leaving the country following the Josh Duggar molestation scandal one month later, the couple asked for donations on their website. But now fans are calling them out for how they spent those dollars.

“You left in July for missionary work and in the three months you have been back twice and airfare is thousands! Now you are staying for a month to enjoy family and friends? You are not missionaries; you are grifters asking people for money so you don’t have to work,” one fan wrote.

The trio left on July 5 but have come back to the United States twice since, once for cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding and another for Duggar family friend Michael Bates’ wedding.

“Jill, Israel, and I recently arrived back in the States for a planned, month long trip to take care of some things and enjoy time with family and friends while we’re here, before heading back to Central America,” Derick wrote. “Our current plan is to continue in language school once we return to Central America.”

Derick currently does not have a job after quitting his position at Walmart for the mission work while Jill is studying to become a professional midwife. The family’s reality show, 19 Kids And Counting, was cancelled following the Josh scandal.
