  2. This is an amazing video guys. Well done! I am weeping as I watch it and realize yet again that I left a huge part of my heart in Papua New Guinea, and the void remains. So thankful I can be a part of helping the Jones family get back to that amazing "Land of the Unexpected."

    1. yeah, it's gotta be hard to watch. It made us so homesick the last time we watched it we were both crying! You are a HUGE part of helping us survive the next year so we can rejoin the work.

  5. Very well done! It is so neat to actually see where you live and what you do over in PNG. This video really helped me to better understand your ministry there. Thank you for sharing this!

  6. Very well done. I am amazed at the scenery in PNG. I never saw anything
    so impressive in Peru or Colombia; but the mountains there were pretty
    bare, not much vegetation. Maybe Brazil has places like PNG.

    I'm also amazed at all the pictures, videos. I've never seen anything like
    it before. So thanks for sending it to us.

    I took care of Carrie for awhile when she was in Nursery at Lomalinda. If
    all her babies are as active as she was, she will have a big job for many
    years!!

    1. This came through as anonymous, and I'd love to know who used to watch me in LML. :) I used to get so offended when people would say Ukarumpa was more beautiful than LML - funny! Just a different type of beautiful, right? I think Isaac's busyness level was akin to mine. So maybe the quints will be mild-mannered and perfect. ;) Just kidding - I do enjoy kids with lots of spirit and personality! They're way more fun. I just hope all five aren't crazy!! Carrie

  7. Thank you for posting this. It is a reminder to all of us who support translation work, why we do it. This brought tears to my eyes, especially when you delivered the Bibles. One of those translator families is mine - Matt and Christy Taylor so I want to say thank you for your faithfulness in the work. We will be praying now for you too by name.

  9. What a beautifully put together piece that give so much insight as to why and American family would go to PNG!! We have many Aussie friends (probably in common) in PNG and pray for ongoing safety for you all as you work, live, serve, fly, fix, teach, learn, preach, translate, educate, minister, endure, bless and are blessed. You will certainly fill a helicopter when you go back! Enjoying finding out more about you through your site and have joined the masses praying for you.

  10. Wow! Great video. It takes me back. We worked in Milne Bay 1982-1988. Back then we had 35mm color film that took 4+ weeks to get back from Australia and much, much longer if you were in the village and overhead projections and a carousel projector and maybe silent super-8 movie film to show pictures back home and we were exstatic with that pre-Internet technology. At least we had personal computers for linguistics work and could even design the special characters we needed--both screen and printer versions! The pictures and videos in this YouTube video are wonderful and show how beautiful and verdant the country is. And the pictures of the people really show their humanity rather than sensationalize their differences from us. In so many ways they are just like us and people back here in the US need to see and embrace that. God bless you now in the new chapter in our lives with five new little babies to pour your lives into. I also pray that Isaac doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Keep taking pictures of him too. :-) ~Ron
