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 is great now! Plus some fun run photos

Thanks for praying! He didn't end up having the scan, which was a blessing monetarily as he's stopped having symptoms and apparently doesn't need one! I guess it was just some type of infection with a strange lack of symptoms (other than pain) that raised his white cell count (to 16,000!) and took a long time to clear up fully. Thank God no one else got it! I'm so grateful for all the prayers and wish I'd asked earlier. The power of prayer always awes me! God is so good and gracious - even when His answer is no. I'm glad it was a yes this time. MUCH better sleep makes for a much happier Mommy and Daddy and kids!

Here are some photos from the kids' Fun Run fundraiser* at school the week of Thanksgiving:

Just after this photo Seth stopped running and said his tummy was hurting. This was the beginning of the drama and ended with a trip to Urgent Care Tuesday night. :(
At this point the "fun run" had become a walk in which they wanted Mom to join. But they still loved it!

Gail Boemker took this photo. She spend the first Christmas the quints were home (minus Seth) with us, helping out BIG TIME. She held Marcie all Christmas dinner, if I recall correctly. She was getting teary-eyed watching these miracle babies run their Fun Run laps! 
*Sponsored by Miss Anita and Mr. Jon, Aunt Lynnette, and Aunt Fay and Uncle Jim! THANKS!!
