Prepare to Serve Abroad

So I may only have had one day to prepare so far but heres a few things that I'm doing to prepare to serve my mission abroad.

  1. Study Preach My Gospel - No shocker here as thats probably the most import thing I can do to be spiritually prepared.
  2. Read the Book of Mormon in German - This is a double whammy. Reading the Book of Mormon before leaving for your mission is a must, but doing it in the language you've been called to also counts for studying the language.
  3. Learning German - Because I'll be sent to the land of "Guten Tag" and "Wie Gehts" I figure it isn't that bad to have a head start on my german. 
  4. Learning to Cook - Not to toot my own horn or anything but I'm a decent cook. However I only know how to cook Americano and Panamanian (I doubt theres a lot of plantains in Germany). So I've began to research german cuisine. 
  5. Working Out - No secret here but a mission is a lot of work and I'm no body builder. Im starting with the 7 min workout and going to be adding to that till my mission. 
  6. Goal Setting - The final piece of the puzzle to get me where I want to be. Once I have a better idea of where I'm at I will be setting goals on where I want to be before I leave for my mission. 

     7. Stalking my new mission. This is pretty self explanatory I'm slowly visiting every website that so much as references the Frankfurt Mission.
