A Good Week: A Baptism, Two Exchanges, New Investigators and Pictures of the Galway Cathedral!

Heya Everyone how goes it? 

This week was a good week (for obvious reasons). 

So we had our Baptism with Uriel which we were worried for a bit wouldn't happen because when he had his interview he didn't quite pass it at first but then we got permission for Elder Weber to address his concern from the interview and Elder Weber was in for less than 5 min, dealt with it and boom baptism! 

Also went on 2 exchanges this week with Elder Scott and Elder Haller and both went well (besides our whole scare with Uriel on my Exchange with E. Scott). 

With Elder Haller we got 2 new investigators, one named Declan who's golden! He's a FI (former investigator) who met with the missionaries like 15+ years ago and is completely ready and Ben from Alaska, finally! Got plenty of more people to also contact this week where we got 7 potents (potentials) that day. 

Had a really cool experience when Uriel was baptized. So sadly his big toe didn't get quite under the water so had to redo it but that was okay for Uriel because after he said he preferred doing it twice because the first time he felt like he died (he let go of his nose so had water shoot up and felt like he was drowning) :( and the second time was more ready and felt reborn again (like it says in Romans 6:4 (I think...) But anyway the whole time I felt so full of warmth and goodness performing it that it was more of a confirmation even to me that what I'm doing is changing people's lives and is true so it was pretty cool. 

Then yesterday 3 hours after getting the gift of the Holy Ghost he came on a JT (joint teaching) with us with Minerva and we invited her to be baptized in the GOJC (Gospel of Jesus Christ) lesson. She wasn't quite sure so we are having her pray but she said if she gets an answer she'll get baptized (Uriel was the exact same when we taught him so he was very helpful and was a boss JT!) 

You's all take care of yourselves and have a good craic this week!

The Cathedral of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and St Nicholas (Irish Language: Ard-Eaglais Mhaighdean na Deastógála agus Naomh Nioclás), commonly known as Galway Cathedral, is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Galway, Ireland, and is one of the largest and most impressive buildings in the city.
Construction began in 1958 on the site of the old city prison, In 1965, it was dedicated, joint, to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven and to St. Nicholas.

Take care, slán!
