There are other less familiar fruits here like Jackfruit which I have not tried yet, and my kids are not yet huge fans of the papaya. But the passion fruit juice is very tasty! The oranges here are actually green, they never ripen to an orange color and they are sour. There is also something the kids from the village just call "fruit." The missionary kids at GSF think it tastes bad, so we have not tried it yet.
In our worship service yesterday, there was also discussion of fruit. There was an illustration about a mango tree, but the fruit that he was really talking about is the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." As we were listening to this sermon we were both convicted that we need to grow in these areas. So please pray for God to work the fruit of His Spirit into the lives of our family. Maybe when you see some bananas and pineapple at the store, you can remember to pray for our family that we would grow in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Thanks for your prayers.
