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

Anybody ready for some news?

I figure everyone is waiting with bated breath, so . . . here we go.


The Jones Quintuplets
Born August 9, 2012

Will Edward: 2lb, 10 oz. 10:01 AM

David Stephen: 2 lb, 6 oz. 10:02 AM

Marcie Jane: 2 lb, 0 oz. 10:03 AM

Seth Jared: 2 lb. 1 oz. 10:04 AM

Grace Elise: 1 lb 12 oz. 10:05 AM

All the babies are healthy and doing well, despite how they look (referring to the lines and tubes-- they're all beautifully formed!)  We praise God for His mercy and love in bringing these 5 new lives into ours!  The whole delivery went flawlessly from beginning to end.  Carrie has already been up and into the NICU two times to see the babies!  Everyone is saying that it's incredible how quickly she's recovering and couldn't believe how soon she was in to see them.  Isaac is enthralled with his new siblings!  Thanks to all for your prayers and all the glory to God!  

Unfortunately, we aren't connected to our email account here, just the internet, so that's a bit limiting and frustrating.  Bear with us on that, please.
