I Support the Bread Truck!

“I support the bread truck!”

Hello to everyone at home! This week in the land of Portugal has been one for the books let me tell you! So to prepare for the new year, the split of the mission and for new mission presidents, president Fluckiger has pulled out the big guns. We as a mission have started something called Mestres de Israel. It is this 30 day thing where everyday we have to do 5 things and if we dont do them then we have to restart back at day 1.#1 wake up at exactly 7. #2 Read 3 pages in the missionary manuel#3 Plan at night using the guide in PMG and in the front of the planner#4 We are only aloud to speak Portuguese out side the house.#5 We have to contact 10 people everyday.It is pretty cool! most of it isn’t that hard. The thing that gets me is that when I don’t know a word I have to either act it out or guess or just not say it. haha that is hard. Also the contacting thing is hard for me. People stress me out when they actually stop and talk to us! But it is really good and I am learning a lot! Also to complete the Mestre de Isreal thing I have to know all the lesson points and have all the scriptures that go with them memorized as well. So in all that is 29 scriptures 4 lessons and 4 extra power lesson things that our mission has. wow. big 30 days ahead of me. Today is only day 5. Wish me luck! I am excited though cuase this will finish my training and then I will be ready to just kill it as a regular missionary!This week we had lots of stuff! new years! that was good! the Portuguese go hard. Lots of drinking and smoking at partys. and they are really really loud for a really long time at midnight! haha also we were supposed to have a baptism 2 Sundays ago that fell. We are still working with J on that and trying to figure out what is really going on there. Also with the new year it was a great time to set lots of goals for the Year of my Mission! It is cool cause I get to be a sister that serves for a full year in the mission! So ya this year I have big plans for the People of Portugal! They better be ready for the storm of the gospel that is heading their way! And my favorite part of the week. THE BREAD TRUCK!!! yup there is a truck here that goes around and honks its horn really loud and then stops and people run out of their houses and they buy bread from this really funny bread truck! haha we totally went there and got some! it was awesome! I love the bread truck!I will end with the worlds of my 2nd favorite fish, Dori. Just Keep Swimming. Anyway that is all for now folks! hope that you all make awesome goals for the year of 2015! This is going to be the best year yet soooo I hope that you are all strapped in and ready to crush this year! love you all! Sister Bakker
