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.

Interviews in the South
We spent four days down south interviewing missionaries in the Elche and Valencia Zones. The trip took us first to Murcia, then to Elche, and finally to Valencia. These are the two most productive zones in the mission right now, with great missionaries, excited members, lots of teaching, and regular baptisms! It was a tiring but very enjoyable trip with the opportunity of spending some time with each of our 37 missionaries in the South!
