The two sisters, along with husbands Ben Seewald and Derek Dillard, along with Derek and Jill’s two-month-old son Israel, traveled to Ohio on June 19 for the ALIVE Christian Music Festival, which will take place on June 20. This event will be the siblings’ first public appearance since they appeared in their Fox interview “The Kelly File” with Megyn Kelly earlier this month, coming forward as victims of their brother’s molestation scandal.
Jessa, 22, posted a photo of her and her family at the airport, captioned “Awesome travel buddies.” Missing from the travel photo? Big brother Josh.
The festival was expecting Josh and his wife Anna to make an appearance, but amidst his molestation scandal, it is unclear if they will make it to Ohio. Josh’s absence from the festival doesn’t come as a surprise, seeing as last month, reports were released that detailed acts of molestation that Josh committed on five underage girls when he was a teenager.
Jill, Jessa and their husbands are scheduled to speak at the event, and they will reportedly participate in a Q&A session with audience members, sign autographs and greet festival attendees. And while they might be only two of several celebrity speakers, all eyes will be on them.
