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.

Zone Conferences - Elche and Valencia

We finished up the February Zone Conferences with the Elche Zone on Tuesday and the Valencia Zone on Wednesday. It is a 7-hour train ride to Murcia (where we hold the Elche Zone Conference, so we went down on Monday afternoon.

A recent convert (of one week) joined us for the last few minutes of the conference and shared her testimony briefly with us. This sweet sister somehow found the address of the Sister Missionaries on the Web - she went to their apartment four times before she finally found them home (the fact that they were there the 4th time was one of many miracles).

After Zone Conference we headed on the train up to Valencia to get some sleep and prepare for the Valencia Zone Conference on Wednesday.

 The Valencia Zone - small in number, great in power!

After conference is was back to the train station and home to Barcelona. One of the great things about traveling by train is you can keep working during the travel time.
