Jill shared the letter on her website. Here are some excerpts:
Derick, Israel and I are so excited for you and Benji! I can’t believe you have a little one now! It was such a joy to get to be apart of the birth from Central America, thank you. You were a champ! I felt those contractions with you. Jess, a verse that I texted Jana while you were in labor was one I clung to while laboring with “choo choo” (Israel): “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” -Phil 4:13…
I’m so excited to both be on this motherhood journey together! I pray our boys will love Jesus with their heart, soul, mind and strength and love others more than themselves! We will have to let them FaceTime frequently while we are down here. It will be so fun to see them experiencing things and going thru similar stages within a few months of each other. I’m sure since they were about the same size at birth they’ll be sharing clothes too…
You can read Jill’s entire letter at The Dillard Family Website.
Jill is currently doing missionary work in Central America with her husband and son, baby Israel. Israel and Spurgeon are only a few months apart: if Jill relocates back to Arkansas, then I bet the cousins will be close!
We’re going to get to see how the Duggar sisters are doing in TLC’s upcoming special, ‘Jill & Jessa Duggar: Counting On.’ I bet the TLC cameras are there to capture everything- or at least a lot ;). Are you looking forward to watching their special?
