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.

Flag of the Co-principality of AndorraImage via Wikipedia
We have not had missionaries serving in Andorra for about 1 1-2 years, but we have a small branch which includes the Principality of Andorra (with a small chapel in Le Seu, just south of the border in Spain).  Elders Bostrom and Hancock are scheduled to return home on August 18, mid-transfer, and it provided an opportunity to have a companionship spend some time in the Andorra Branch to train the members in missionary work and see if they could find, teach and baptize.

So they day after transfers we drove Elders Bostrom and Hancock north to Andorra! Elder Raban and Elder Parry came along to help with the driving (and get some driving experience!).

Because taxes are lower in Andorra, many Spaniards go there to shop. The Elders were particularly excited to find bargain prices and large quantities of Nutella!

President Antezana of the Andorra Branch met us in Le Seu - we left the Elders at his home for the afternoon until they could meet up with a member in Andorra where they will be staying.

Ready to go to work!

  1. I hope they bring a giant jar of Nutella home for me. It was my dream to serve in Andorra and now I can see why.

  2. I feel like saying to you what Grandma said to Grandpa about some missionaries he assigned once ... I can't believe you left those two little boys in that tiny town all by themselves!
