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.

We said farewell to three remarkable missionaries this week: Elder Jensen, Elder Quinn and Hna. Konopinski. They all served well and we will miss them!

We were scheduled to receive six new missionaries this week, but five of them are still waiting for visas. Only Hna. Bennion arrived in the field on schedule, but we are not worried - she can do the work of six!

  1. I enjoy hearing about your baptisms being done. I know every one will be blessed and be very happy with their desicion,

    God bless them all and Keep them!

  2. Tell Hermana Church I love her red skirt and black peacoat. And I love Hermana Bennion's cardigan. Dressed like that, these two are bound for great success! I hope your Madrid visa waiters come soon!

  3. Tell Hermana Bennion we are so happy to see her smiling face in Barcelona!!! And she looks great....wait until you see all those great skirts and scarves....including her red power skirt...there will be no stopping her :)
    We love our Jadey-girl!
