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

Seth is doing better

Thank you for praying! He's requiring no or very little oxygen, running and playing and eating and being goofy with his siblings. It's such fun to hear and see him back to normal, albeit with an oxygen cannula dragging behind him for the times he needs a bit of oxygen (as in sleep).

Please keep praying he's off by tomorrow, Lord willing, as his daddy leaves early Tuesday morning. I'm very encouraged, though, and praise God for how far He's brought Seth, in particular because Friday night it seemed he was really taking a turn for the worse again. I was thinking we'd have to be med-evaced on Saturday morning, but the Lord was very gracious and really did amazing work in his little body.

The other kids are all fine, thank God. I pray they stay so so that we can all enjoy Grandma and Grandpadad's last four days here!

Tonight Marcie put all the kids to bed, one by one, starting with Seth. She transferred his cannula to the small portable oxygen tank, then wheeled it to bed with him, telling him it was time to go to sleep. Then she put Gracie, Will and David to bed, one at a time, calling them "Honey" all the while, and lastly put herself to bed! What a little mother she is! I think it's funny they allowed her to parent them like that. :)

Love and gratitude,

On the way to the Clinic Saturday at noon. He checked out great!
