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.

More Help Arrives

On Friday morning Elder Call arrived on the train from Madrid. He is the first of our missionaries scheduled to arrive on 11 January to actually receive a visa and arrive. We are excited to have him here!

This afternoon he will board an airplane and fly to Bilbao, where his new companions will meet him at the airport. He will be serving in Bilbao with the zone leaders, Elders Awerkamp and Bajaña, in a trio for the next few weeks until we receive some additional missionaries.

Elders Awerkamp and Bajaña are glad for the help - when I called them this morning they told me they currently have seven investigators with baptism dates scheduled!

Elder Call points to Bilbao with Elders Keller and Jacinto (acting as proxies for his actual companions, Elders Awerkamp and Bajaña).
