Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard Wish 'Joy to the World' With Baby Israel (PHOTO)

Happy Holidays from Jill and Derick and 8-month-old baby Israel, who are still on their mission in Central America. The happy family posted to Instagram Wednesday with a seasonal greeting for all their fans. 


They captioned the photo, "Alegría Para El Mundo!" -- and if your Spanish language skills are a little rusty, this translates to "Joy to the World."

On the Dillard family blog, Jill included this message: 

As Christmas Day is nearly upon us, we’ve taken advantage of numerous opportunities in multiple venues to share the hope of the Gospel with those we are ministering to. I am glad that we will always be able to look back on our first Christmas with our son, Israel, and remember the goodness of the Lord toward our family as we spent the season together in Central America.

Jill also posted that she has "sweat on her brow," which I think even those of us not in Central America can relate to, because of how unseasonably warm this Christmas has been. It will be fun to see how big baby Israel has grown by next Christmas and where this couple will celebrate next year!
