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.

A Short Guide to the Week

MONDAY: President Hinckley's sister, Virginia H. Pearce, arrives for a brief visit. Elder Gallegos falls on Montserrat, breaks his leg, and is evacuated by helicopter.
TUESDAY: In a mid-cycle transfer, two new missionaries arrived from the Madrid MTC. Arrangements are made for Elder Gallegos' release and travel home.
WEDNESDAY: Hermanas luncheon and meeting for hermanas serving in the Barcelona metro area. Finalize travel arrangements for Elder Gallegos.
THURSDAY:  Elder Gallegos leaves, with the able assistance of airport services for the handicapped.

On Friday we take Sister Pearce to the airport, then pick up Elder Richard G. Hinckley to begin a mission tour and series of conferences over 4 days. His arrival is dependent upon being able to fly out of Paris in spite of air travel interruptions due to volcanic ask from eruption in Iceland.

And in the meantime, the work goes on with miracle after miracle! Details below.
