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

We went down to the river to pray and play

There was a baptism last Sunday, the first we've attended. It's neat to see it happening in a real river vs. a baptismal "tub" in church! The kids, of course, enjoyed playing in the river. 


Happy boy!





And away from the river:
It's fun to see what the kids come up with for play using what they find around the house and yard! :)

A boy and his dog - Isaac and "Goose"

A genuine pet here! A python only found on this island, supposedly.



On a hike this past Saturday
