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.

Internet Miracles - How Google and Facebook Further the Work
Some weeks ago a man who had first heard of the Church in Nigeria was looking on the Internet to try and find the Church in Valencia where he now lives. In the process he somehow came across a Church member in Australia, and they began communicating via Internet. She sent him a copy of the Book of Mormon, and he wanted to learn more. Somehow he found a cellular phone number that had once been assigned to the Elders in Valencia. They phone number was now assigned to Elder and Sister Thompson on the island of Mallorca. They Thompsons served a previous mission in West Africa, so when this Nigerian called asking about the Church, they had an common connection. Elder Thompson wrote down the man's name, telephone number and address and promised to have the missionaries meet with him in Valencia. The Valencia sister missionaries met with him within a few days and he told them he loves the Church and wants to become a member. He is scheduled to be baptized April 3rd.
