Cork is the smallest county in Ireland. Ya know why?… Because it can fit in a bottle! Hahaha a member in Belfast told me that. Cork is AMAZING! It is the second biggest city in Ireland! There are tons of people to talk to and the missionary work is going great here. I am currently staying in what we call a 6 man flat. 6 missionaries in 1 appartment. Crazy huh? We are trying to find another apartment for 2 of us, but nothing yet! My companion is Elder Van Staden! He is 20 years old, from Pretoria, South Africa, is 10 months out, and is probably the funniest guy I have ever met. We are so ready to work hard this transfer. He has been here for 5 transfers and this transfer is only 4 weeks so he is most likely moving at the end of the month. Sister Berkabile spent 4 months of her mission in Cork so shout out to her!
I love you all! Sorry this is so short, but nothing really happens on moves week. Tune in next week for more interesting stuff!
P.S. The Blarney Stone is in my area!!!!!!!!!! I am kissing it next week.
P.P.S. Now that I am in the Republic, my Irish word of the week is actually Irish (Gaelic)!
Irish Word of the Week: álainn = Beautiful
