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

Dallas farewells . . . the hardest part of being in overseas missions

We've been too busy packing, moving and making memories to post anything recently. I hope to catch up in the next couple of weeks before we leave for PNG. We've already said goodbye to my (Carrie's) family, including Aunt Pam and Aunt Cynthia. Now we're on the West Coast with Gavin's side of the family, having a great time except for the fact that Gracie and Marcie are really sick. We appreciate your prayers they'd get over this tummy bug quickly and that NO ONE ELSE WILL GET IT, please!

Lots of late nights and too much fun made Marcie a sleepy girl!

Last playdate for FOUR years!! (D.V.) This is the saddest part  - kids change SO much in four years!
