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.

Blanca Navidad

On Christmas day we were surprised by carolers a the front door.: Elders Keller, Southwick, Corbitt and Hadley, along with our friend Archie from Barrio 2!

Then in the afternoon we drove down to Tarragona to attend a baptism service. Hno. Leal, whose wife has prayed fervently that he would someday accept the gospel, was baptized by his father-in-law. Elders Close and Benito had been working with him for several weeks, so it was a happy day for them, too!

A White Christmas!


  1. Archie is still alive? dang!! what a strong man!

  2. Felicidades por un ano tan exitoso. Espero que han acertado la meta de bautismos. Siga viendo los milagros cotidianos. Visca Barcelona!
