Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have left the building. The stars have officially said goodbye to America as they embark on their mission trip overseas. The 19 Kids and Counting stars revealed last month that they were headed abroad to spread the word of God to foreign lands. The Duggars have been in the middle of a molestation scandal revolving around eldest son Josh Duggar, and it seems like this is the perfect opportunity for Jill and Derick to embark on a mission that they are extremely passionate about. Supportive sister Jessa Duggar was at the airport to see her sibling and brother-in-law off, as they boarded the plane for the undisclosed location.

Jessa took to her Instagram account to post a picture of Jill and Derick boarding the airplane with baby Israel.

She captioned the cute shot, "So excited for @jillmdillard & @derickdillard! They've been praying about and working towards this transition since late last year, and are so excited to finally be heading to the mission field! Please continue to pray for them! And be sure to check out their blog at www.dillardfamily.com."

Jessa also posted a quote from Mark 16:15 along with the image, writing, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature."

According to Us Weekly, the couple didn't mention how long they would be on the trip for or even where they were going for that matter, but they did mention that it was going to be "longer than the typical short-term mission trip."

The mentioned on their blog that they hoped that this mission trip would help them spread their love for God.

"Since we first began our relationship, it has always been our goal that Jesus Christ might be glorified as we serve other through family ministry, by whatever means that might be."
