Are The Duggars Using Donations Outside Of Missions?

Fans are questioning if their donations are going solely toward mission trips for Jill and Derick Dillard.

There sure are a lot of Duggars. So, it's fairly easy to dig up Duggar drama.

And this story isn't even about Josh Duggar's Ashley Madison scandal

This one is about Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard. (Video via TLC / "19 Kids and Counting")

In July, they left on a mission trip to Central America. 

Here's where the controversy comes in

The couple gets donations through their tax-exempt organization called Dillard Family Ministries. The big ta-da is the speculation the couple is using that money for more than just mission work.

The two have taken two trips back to the States. The questions is: Did they use the money from their organization to take those trips?

For their latest trip to Amy Duggar's wedding, the family snapped a selfie and posted it on Instagram. So, it was no secret they were traveling. 

Fans have complained on Facebook, asking where the money they donated was going and asking to see pictures of, you know, the mission trip. 

And lo and behold — this Instagram "throwback Thursday" image appeared. 

We still don't know if Jill and Derick used their own money to make those trips back to the States, though.
