They’re back!

Jill (Duggar) Dillard and her husband Derick have returned to Arkansas for a short Stateside stay and were welcomed with open arms at their local airport. The Dillard family has spent the last 10 months serving as missionaries in Central America.

Upon arriving, Counting On star Jill, 25, posted a handful of photos of their families greeted them with balloons, gifts and a camera crew in tow.

The Duggars also shared an arrival announcement on the family’s Facebook with the caption: “We are so thrilled to have Derick, Jill and Israel back home with us, and are so thankful God kept them safe while they were on the mission field. We know they will only be here for what will feel like a short period of time, but we plan to enjoy every second they are here with us!”

The Dillards will remain in Arkansas into the fall where she and Derick will be taking “some Bible classes” and “continue to work in ministry from the US,” according to the Dillard Family Blog.

“Even while we are in the United States we will continue to work on behalf of the ministry and the work in Central America will continue,” they wrote.

Season 2 of Counting On will premiere Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on TLC.
