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.

January Zone Conferences: Lifting Our Vision

January Zone Conferences! This week we held zone conferences in Palma, Hospitalet, and Lleida. We had wonderful conferences. Each conference began with a reading of the names of every convert baptism in the mission during 2010, which brought back a flood of memories as we read aloud hundreds of names and were reminded of the marvellous miracles we saw during the past twelve months.

Unfortunately, neither Hna. Hinckley nor her camera made it to Palma on Tuesday (she was in Bilbao for the day tending to the needs of missionaries there), so we do not yet have photo of the Baleares Zone. 

Wednesday we met with the Hospitalet Zone at the Hospitalet Stake Center. This is our largest zone, and we had a wonderful day together.

From the Hospitalet Stake Center we drove directly to Lleida (about two hours) for zone conference there the next morning. This was the first conference of the newly-created Lleida Zone and the first time we had held a conference at the Lleida chapel.
Next week we hold conferences in Bilbao, Barcelona, and Valencia!
