Derick and Jill Dillard (previously Duggar) are reportedly offering refunds to supporters of their missions work in Central America, after fans accused the couple of being “fake” missionaries. Christian Today reports the accusations came after the Dillards returned to the U.S. for a wedding a month of visiting friends and family after two months on the mission field.


Fans took to social media to accuse the couple of using their donations to fund flights to America. Though the Dillards did not directly respond to the accusations, the family’s donation site now says, “For questions about your transactions or to request a refund please contact the organization office.” 


The couple plans to continue their missions work in Central America after the month hiatus. 


Derick Dillard wrote on his blog, "Jill, [our child] Israel, and I recently arrived back in the States for a planned, month long trip to take care of some things and enjoy time with family and friends while we're here, before heading back to Central America."
