And life goes on after 19 Kids And Counting.
It was only a couple weeks ago Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard left for a mystery mission trip with baby Israel in tow, and they've finally given their first update, including the secret location!
They're in Central America!

It's still a pretty vague reveal, but the family is probably just looking for a bit of privacy, especially after the cancellation of the TLC show.
The couple shared to their blog:
"We are so excited to announce that we have safely arrived on the mission field and we can now tell you that we are in Central America! Israel seems to be adjusting to the new climate, culture, food (via mom's milk), and language faster than Jill and I are. In fact, he has been the talk of the town. Everywhere we go, people here about and want to see and hold the, "big blue-eyed, white baby" LOL. Israel is definitely growing and developing fast. It has also been wonderful to make contact and talk briefly with family back in the US to share updates."
Glad to know they're safe and Israel is adjusting well — and that they've also been in touch with the family.
We can't imagine traveling with a newborn would be in any way easy!
