Yet another mission trip for Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar is in the books! The couple is known for their mission work, and their latest outing to Colorado was anything but rocky! The former Counting On stars and their two sons — Israel, 3, and 9-month-old Samuel — headed to the state as part of Derick’s School of Ministry training. The goal of their mission trip was to help a couple from their church who have recently started a new church called The Bridge Fellowship in Colorado Springs.
“As part of our role in helping the ‘church plant’ in community outreach, we volunteered at a food pantry to help organize food,” they explained in a blog post. “We also put together meals and delivered them to the homeless in multiple locations, helped the pastor and his wife with some projects, passed out doughnuts and coffee to local businesses and schools, passed out pizzas to police and fire stations and military bases, handed out dog treats at dog parks, and picked up trash.”
“We really wanted to show the community that, in representing The Bridge Fellowship, we wanted to serve and love Colorado Springs, with no strings attached,” they continued. “On Sunday we helped with set up and tear down for the church service and worked alongside the church staff.” Jill also spent some bonding time with her two sons, writing on Instagram, “You know you’re a mom when…you walk [1 hour 10 minutes] with both boys to get to a Chick-fil-A. We were enjoying some beautiful Colorado Springs weather while papa was busy with the rest of the team from church!” Watch the video below to see why Jill got a ton of backlash for taking her sons on a long walk.
When both of the lovebirds were off the clock, the family of four soaked in the “beautiful Colorado scenery,” celebrated Israel’s birthday, and Derick and Jill shared their “highest kiss” at 14,115 feet up after visiting Pike’s Peak.. The bunch, who drove to Colorado in a caravan with a group of about 20 people from Northwest Arkansas gushed that overall, they had “a wonderful time.”
