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's itching like crazy!

Carrie just called me from the hospital to say that she had a pretty miserable night.  She is itching from the top of her scalp to the bottom of her toes and it has kept her from sleeping and is basically driving her crazy.  Please pray with us for her and the doctors and nurses as they try to figure out what to do.  She had the itching the previous night as well, but Benadryl took care of the problem.  Last night, though, nothing they tried made any difference until they basically knocked her out with Demerol.  Good rest and good eating are very important for her right now, so this is tough for her and not the best scenario.  They are doing some blood work and have a few ideas of what may be the problem, but as of yet, no solution.  

She did have a very good day yesterday and was in top spirits.  The doctor is trying to keep her off as many monitors and IVs as possible to make it feel as much like home as possible.  For that we are grateful.  

Thanks so much for praying!


  1. Too much magnesium?

  2. The meds they use to stop contractions make you feel like your skin is crawling! I am praying for her relief!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! We accidentally had them disabled until April 16, 2019, so feel free to try again. :)
