In the wake of Josh Duggar's molestation scandal, Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard announced that they were leaving the country and heading to Central America to do missionary work -- and asked for fan donations to help them make it happen. But now, the couple has begun offering refunds after fans have lashed out, accusing them of being fake missionaries!
As Radar reported back in June, Jill and Derrick announced their trip on the family blog, asking fans and faithful to open their hearts and pockets to fund their mission. “God has put a desire in our hearts to serve Him internationally for longer than the typical short-term mission trip… It’s something we’ve prayed about together in an effort to seek God’s plan for our lives in His service.”
However, despite claiming that they were going on a long-term mission trip, the Dillards have already returned home for a month-long hiatus -- only two months into their trip! What's more, The Inquisitor reports, the family has yet to do any missionary work in the name of their own charity, Dillard Family Ministries, instead paying a standard fee to work with another charity instead!
Even worse, the Dillards are reportedly not qualified to serve as missionaries for the Souther Baptist Church, in part due to failure to complete necessary religious coursework.
Fans have exploded with outrage at being taken for their money, questioning where it went, and what it was used for. However, instead of providing an expense report, the Duggar donation page has simply been altered to provide an option for those seeking refunds on donation money. It now reads, "For questions about your transactions or to request a refund please contact the organization office."
