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.

"Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them." - Jeremiah 16:16

A pair of Hermanas just called to relate an interesting experience. They had gone back to their apartment this afternoon as one of the Hermanas had a severe headache. While they were resting, the doorbell rang. Standing at the door were a woman and her daughter, who inquired if this where the Mormon Church held meetings. The Hermanas explained that it was just their apartment, but that they were Mormon missionaries. The woman at the door went on to question them: "So there is a modern prophet today?" "We can learn the truth by studying and praying, and the Holy Ghost will bear witness to us?" The Hermanas assured them that all this was correct, invited them to follow the example of the Savior by being baptized by one who holds the priesthood authority of God, and made arrangements to begin teaching them.

I have spent some memorable times fishing, and have had more luck on some days than on others, but I never remember a fishing trip where the fish jumped into the boat! We love this work!
