Just weeks after Josh Duggar confessed to cheating on his wife, Anna, his sister Jill Duggar has spoken out.
She took to her family blog to address life since she, husband Derrick Dillard and their son, Israel, moved to Central America for a mission trip and wrote, “August has been a busy month for us and as so many of you know it has ended on a sad note for my extended family. Please do pray for our family. We are so thankful for God’s grace during difficult days.”

The 24-year-old’s blog marks the first time one of Josh’s siblings has directly addressed his scandal.
Younger sister Jessa, 22, alluded to the incident by sharing a sermon, titled “The Passions That Prevent Adultery” on her social media pages.
Other relatives have commented on the scandal, as Derick may have hinted at his brother-in-law’s infidelity by inviting fans to virtually attend a service about Christianity and sex, while Anna’s brother Daniel Keller labeled the 27-year-old a “pig.”
Shortly after Josh checked into rehab, his parents, Jim-Bob and Michelle, said in a statement, “We are so thankful for the outpouring of love, care and prayers for our family during this most difficult situation with Josh. As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear. “
