On Saturday afternoon we dropped by the Barcelona 2 chapel to attend the baptismal service. A couple of weeks ago Elders Corbitt and Johnson visited with a less active family who, as it turns out, were anxious to come back and well prepared for the visit! They have three daughters who had never been baptized, so the Elders have been busy teaching them and preparing them for baptism.
It was a wonderful service and the girls were so happy to finally be baptized! All three were confirmed in sacrament meeting today, and the ward now has a wonderful new family!

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.
