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.

Every Six Weeks...

...we send some great missionaries home. And we receive some great new missionaries!

On December 29 we said "adios" to Elders Lee, Sharpe and Coons. Elder Harris left on December 19. It was sad to see them go - all were great missionaries and they have left a gaping hole in the mission.

But not to worry - we received three new amazing missionaries: Hna. Rodriquez (from Italy/Argentina), Elder Ferreira (from Spain/Uruguay), and Elder Gallegos (from Spain).

Hna. Rogdriguez pointing to Torrevieja, her first assignment. She was the only Sister at the Madrid MTC, so she brought along her own companion, complete with chapa!
