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

Urgent prayer requests!

Hi all,

Less than 13 hours before we take off on our first airplane, Seth has a fever and just vomited. He started coughing earlier today, and tonight he's having trouble sleeping because of it. PLEASE PRAY the vomiting is only because of a reaction to ibuprofen and not a symptom of illness. The thought of traveling with all these little people SICK is just, well, sickening. :(

Please also pray for Isaac. He's really struggling with sadness over leaving his friends and life here. He's super excited to see his friends in Dallas, but he doesn't remember Waxhaw well or have real friends there yet, so the idea of living there for the school year - and only being in Dallas for a couple weeks - is depressing to him. I'm trying to remind him how kind God has always been, and how many good things He's filled his life with everywhere we've ever lived, but I don't want to minimize his grief either. No matter who and what lies on the other side of the ocean, it won't be his buddies and his community here.

Love and gratitude,
