The lighthouse at Formentor, Mallorca
The background shows sidewalk tiles - "rajoles" - that pave the sidewalks throughout Barcelona. They were designed by architect Puig i Cadafalch for the entryway of a home. Since 1915, they have been used by the city to pave sidewalks, and have become emblematic of the city. One of the city's most famous chocolatiers, Enric Rovira, produces chocolate bars in the shape and design of these tiles.

Hna. Hinckley calls each missionary on their birthday to wish them a happy birthday, and tries to contact their parents as well. But the missionaries often plan their own celebration. When Elder Jensen and Elder Lee celebrated their birthday on the same day last week, Elder Mitchell put together a lunch for the entire office staff at a restaurant near the port. A good time was had by all!
