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

Watersliding at the birthday party

Thanks to Aunt/Mrs. Debbie (the kids' teacher last year and Friday-morning-hero our first year here) for being our photographer!

The kids wanted a helping hand at the beginning but got progressively more brave. Here Will looks on with some concern. He never actually did the slide; he preferred his water shooters from Grandpadad (below)

Marcie goes it alone!

Dad is going a bit too fast for David's taste!
David is still slightly nervous, but at least he has his umbrella along for the ride (I'm not sure why he wanted it to go down the slide with them, but it's his party and he can ride how he wants to!)

Glamorous Grace with the dress and sunglasses she'd just opened as gifts. 

Gavin is a good sport, making his daughters very happy :)
Marcie chose to hold her own umbrella rather than asking Daddy to

Seth was the bravest boy on the waterslide!
