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.

Friday we took the AVE to Zaragoza to interview the missionaries in the great capital of Aragón. On the high-speed train it is only 1 1/2 hours each way so we were home in time to do another couple of hours of interviews in Barcelona before the prime evening proselyting time.

Hnas. Brown and Gum, Elders Awerkamp, Lara, and Keller (Elder Wedemeyer was being interviewed by the Pte.)

The Zaragoza missionaries are experiencing a lot of success, and are glad to have the help of Elder Keller who arrived on Wednesday!

Saturday evening we had a wonderful lesson with one of the young investigators in Barcelona Barrio 2. Nataly is 27 years old and came to Barcelona a few months ago to begin a masters program at one of the universities here. Her father is a plastic surgeon in Guayaquil, and she had a few meetings there with the missionaries before moving to Barcelona. She plans to be baptized at 9:00 a.m. next Friday.

Pte y Hna. Hinckley, Nataly, Elders Gogarty and Jensen
