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.

"Regular" Transfers

In between all of the "interim" transfers driven by visa delays, we still have our "regular" transfer every six weeks. Regular transfers were this week - except that they happened a week early due to travel schedules!

  1. Oh I have been waiting for these pictures. So happy to see that my son made it safe and sound. Thank you!

  2. I love the mission blog!
    We have so looked forward to seeing our daughter's picture here!

  3. Happy to see Sister Preston made it to Spain!

  4. I am looking forward to seeing my son's picture here (Brandon Keyes). He will be entering the Provo MTC on Nov. 10th. His visa seems to be on track for him to spend his first Christmas in Spain. Thank you so much for this wonderful blog!

  5. We can't believe Elder Greep is finally there! All our hearts and prayers, to the Missionaries, Members, and anyone in Barcelona seeking the light of the restored gospel.
