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

Update on Seth

Thanks for praying! He only vomited the once,  a huge praise! However, when we got to the airport he was struck with diarrhea, all over his underwear and shorts. The praise there is that we weren't already on the plane, and we had extra clothes in the suitcases, of course.

He's also started satting 93% on average, although during this morning's flight to Port Moresby he dropped into the high 70%'s. PLEASE PRAY he does well on the flight to Cairns, Australia, tomorrow. It's only an hour-and-a-half, but we won't have the option for oxygen like we did on today's flight.

We have steroids and inhaler with us to use as needed, and it will be good to stay in Cairns a few days in case he needs to see a pediatrician. We certainly don't want to get on the long-haul flight with those kinds of oxygenations. But we have 6 days before the trans-Pacific flight, thankfully.

Isaac is worlds better today after a good night's sleep and quality time with friends this morning, plus lots of people to see him off! (There are many flights today, the majority with graduating seniors heading back to their home countries for university/technical school/military.)

Thank you again for your prayers. We can't say enough how grateful we are!
