This is the blog for Gavin and Carrie Jones and family. We live in Papua New Guinea and are working to support Bible translations in progress around the country and the people of PNG. Gavin is a helicopter pilot. Carrie has her degree in Public Health, but our "public" now consists of our son, Isaac, born in 2004 and our quintuplets, Will, David, Marcie, Seth, and Grace, all born in 2012.
But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17
Over the next three days, I will be flying three guys from a mission called "Finisterre Vision" to a couple language areas in PNG that are pretty much unknown. The men are new to the country and are looking for a place where Bible translation, literacy, and Gospel teaching are not happening so that they can start doing just that. I will be taking them to various villages where we will spend time with the people and discovering what we can about their spiritual, language, and educational status and needs. Since so little is known about these areas and people, there is much unknown, such as where to land? Which village is key? Where will we stay, etc? Please pray that the light of Christ shows through our words and actions and that the people to whom we are relating would get an understanding of the purpose of our trip, and above all, God's purpose for them.
