Kelly promised that new YouTube and Instagram posts are coming from Lawson soon. So, fans should be on the lookout.

Finally, the mother of 19 added, “The @mediccorps team has been so blessed to be able to assist in Turkey, and they each have been so grateful for y’all’s concern, your support & encouragement, and your many prayers!”

Medic Corps is an organization that helps out after natural disasters. Several members of both the Duggar and Bates families are involved.
