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.

Wait No More...

More visa waiters arrive!

On September 21st, Hna. Fuentes and Elders Bennington and Greenburg finally arrived in Barcelona! It was a joyous occasion for all. Elders Bennington and Greenburg had been serving for several weeks in the U.S. waiting for their visas, and Hna. Fuentes actually came a little early to enable her to arrive with other missionaries. Unfortunately, Hna. Hinckley did not have her camera with her that day, so you will have to wait to see photos of these incredible missionaries...

Then on September 29th, Elders Abplanalp, Allphin and Garcia arrived in Barcelona after working stateside for a while! Hna. Hinckley did have her camera:

A beautiful morning on Montjuic with Elders Allphin, Abplanalp, and Garcia
