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.

Canto de los ángeles

As we do every six weeks, on Tuesday night following our farewell dinner and testimony meeting with the departing missionaries, we went down to Plaza Cataluña to sing hymns and contact. It was a beautiful summer evening, and we had a wonderful evening of contacting.

One woman who stopped to listen to the singing was touched by both the singing and the message shared by a missionary who approached her. She accepted an invitation to join the chorus and a member brought her into the circle. Some of the youth from the ward came over to meet her, and she is excited to meet with the missionaries this week and to come to Church on Sunday!
