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.

El Clarín: June 2011

From President Hinckley´s message in the June issue of El Clarín:
May was a month of many miracles. The Savior said to the Twelve, “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep” (John 10:14). To the Nephites He said, “For behold I know my sheep, and they are numbered” (3 Nephi 18:31). He knows his sheep, He knows where they are, and He knows when they are ready for the message of the restored gospel.
Two missionaries prayed recently about where they should go to find the elect when they had some free time. Each missionary selected three streets in their area, and when they compared streets they observed that two of them intersected. They decided to start at that intersection. When they arrived at the corner they saw a woman with her children and felt impressed to contact her. She said her family had been looking for a church to attend and invited them over. During the first visit she told them that she is looking for a place where her daughter, who has never been baptized, could be baptized. The family members now have baptismal dates.
In another city in the mission, the elders were in a meeting at the chapel when a family came by and entered the building. They had many questions, like, “Why are there so many churches?” and “Shouldn’t we pay tithing?” They came to church the following Sunday, signed up on the list to feed the missionaries, and signed up to take the bus to stake conference!
The entire issue of El Clarín is now available on the blog. See the link in the right-hand column.
