Ah, that’s cool, thanks! Some day, I hope to connect with the Welsh-speaking church in Wales - go to a service yn Gymraeg and chat afterwards.

The “Bu” at the beginning of your sentence there - is that similar to the “Mi” that you sometimes hear/see?

Also, the spelling of Iesu - is that pronounced with an “ee” sound at the end as is usual for “u” in Welsh? I think I was expecting Iesw…

No, ‘bu’ is a form of bod whereas ‘mi’ at the beginning of a sentence is just a particle that indicates a positive statement or an alternative in some instances to ‘fi’.

Yes, that’s right. It’s pronounced yes-ee, not yes-oo
