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.

The Long-Awaited Browns Arrive!

Elder and Hna. Hadley have reached the conclusion of their missionary service - and they leave a marvelous legacy in a very vibrant Center for Young Single Adults in Barcelona. They are much loved, not just by the young single adults that they have worked with so closely, but by all of us who have had the blessings of serving with them!

The good news is that Elder and Hna. Brown, who have been awaiting their visas since last July, finally made it to Spain! And they arrived in time to be briefed for a couple of days by the Hadleys before taking over their role as advisors to the Barcelona Center for Young Adults. A Barca welcome to los Brown!

Elder and Hna. Brown are finally able to pose
on Montjuic with the Catalan flag flying in background!

At Montjuic


  1. It looks like you are having sunny days there!

  2. Waiting since last July for their visa? This is March, almost April! Wow.

    And we thought visa-waiting was loooong for the younger missionaries!
