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.

Hna. Rodriquez, Elders Ryser and Henrie, Pte. and Hna. Hinckley,
Elders Araujo and Bronson, Hna. Garcia

Wednesday morning after dropping off the returning missionaries at the airport, we drove directly to the train station to say goodby to Hnas. Gonzalez and Garcia, who were returning home on the AVE to Madrid. We were also able to bid farewell to Hnas. Cabrejas and Quintana, two great young adults from Bilbao who have served a mini-mission with us for the last several weeks.

 With the returning missionaries on the train, we then greeted four new missionaries arriving on the 11:22 AVE from Madrid!  We took them directly to the mission home for lunch as Hna. Rejon needed to immediately begin processing some papers for her residency. Following lunch we all went to Montjuic for the traditional view of the mission field and to hear the story of Columbus.

At Montjuic:
Elders Allphin and Bennington (ayudantes)
Hna. Rejon (from Mexico) with her trainer, Hna. Martin,
los Hinckley, Elders Prieto (Cartagena),  Reeves (Bountiful)
and Fica (Pocatello)

After a brief orientation, the new missionaries spend the afternoon and evening with some seasoned missionaries, teaching and contacting in the Barcelona area. We are excited to have these impressive new missionaries in El Faro!
