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 update and clarification

Hi all,

Regarding the last few photo-only posts of Seth: Sorry, I didn't realize when we posted to Facebook the explanations of the pictures didn't post over here. Clearly, Seth broke his arm. He was trying to jump from one piece of furniture to another (it was a rainy day, so he couldn't play outside) and fell on the floor with all his weight on that poor arm, consequently partially breaking both his ulna and radius. He was in a lot of pain! Our amazing Clinic staff cheerfully left their suppers to medicate and fix him up (but not before ol' Mom shed a few tears of sympathy), x-raying and setting his arm prior to putting on a splint. Yesterday he upgraded to a  real cast, which will be on him for six weeks. He's still in some pain and has to be regularly dosed with ibuprofen, but he's a champ!

Pictures from yesterday, when he had his splint removed and cast put on:



And a few bonus pics:

Superkids! Gracie, Will and David trying out their poses (and playing in the sandbox. Super Heroes need downtime too, apparently.):
