Jackfruit looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss book, tastes like a mixture of Juicyfruit gum and Starburst candy, and can weigh up to 100 lbs! This insane-ly delicious fruit is such a mess to prepare, but after our first bite we were all hooked. It is the national fruit of Bangladesh (Wikipedia). Looking back, I should have made photos of the jackfruit tree, as they sometimes had twenty fruits all on the same tree. Quite the sight.

We spent a few of our first days in Kampala, to adjust to the timezone, and prepare as a team for our mission trip out west. Adonai felt like home away from home, and was a perfect setting for us to get ready for what laid ahead. The jackfruit is just one small piece of the many memories we brought from Uganda.
