But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

April Fool's!

I (Gavin) was at the Sun 'N Fun Exposition and Fly-in this past week in Lakeland, FL.  I flew the R44 helicopter down with a colleague.  Our organization had a tent set up along with New Tribes Mission, Mission Aviation Fellowship and Liberty University.  We spent the week there telling passersby about the need for Bible translation, overseas missions, and how they can fit in.  The helicopter was there on display and I spent my time telling people about it and showing kids how the controls work.

The guys from Liberty, having heard the news about the Jones "Quints" showed their sense of humor when they added a few passengers and their necessary equipment  to the helicopter before I arrived in the morning.

Five babies in the copilot's seat, five bibs on the
 cyclic control, and five sippy cups in the back seat.


The For Sale sign says "See Liberty University.  Make an offer."


My first question for the guys was why the five dolls were ALL GIRLS?  Apparently that's all the store had at the time. 

When they took off for breakfast, though, we put up a sign at their booth advertising free full ride scholarships to the first five people to sign up.

  2. Way cool for both of you. Carrie don't feel freaky about leaving your brain behind. I've read that pregnancy hormones do that anyway and you have it times 5. So afterward you will be normal again. Hey maybe I should have some babies and become normal myself.

    Gavin I so wish I had taken the time to plan ahead. I would love to have flown-in to the Fun N Sun and spent some time with you.

    Sarge.
