This is the blog for Gavin and Carrie Jones and family. We live in Papua New Guinea and are working to see lives transformed by the living Word of God through Bible translation. Gavin is a helicopter pilot. Carrie, who has her degree in Public Health, is the lab supervisor and one of five lab techs at our busy rural clinic. Our son, Isaac, was born in 2004 and our quintuplets, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, and Grace, were born in 2012.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. The you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:3-6

Carrie at 26 Weeks and 2 days

Carrie had a great night's sleep and has had a very good day today.  She's in good spirits and pretty comfortable.  The contractions are under control without too much medication and she was up a little bit.  She even got to take a shower!  She has gained 6 pounds in the last week and is eating well, so that's a big praise also.

The NICU had some placards for the babies left over and gave them to us, so we thought it appropriate to put them in the relative positions on Carrie's belly for your reference.  (relative being the key word here)

She had an ultrasound this afternoon, too, which showed the babies are still doing well.  We just praise the Lord for each day He gives the babies in utero . . . and for your prayers!
