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.

Post-Transfers: Leadership Training and Concilio

With the returning missionaries all on their way home and the new missionaries all safely in Barcelona, the next order of business was a full day of leadership training on Thursday. The trainers (and their newly-arrived companions), ayudantes, zone leaders and district leaders all gathered at the Barcelona 2 chapel for a day of instruction. We had a wonderful and edifying experience together and left renewed and recharged!

Leadership Training
After a few brief hours of regrouping and few brief hours of sleep, it was time for our monthly Zone Leader Council meeting on Friday. The ayudantes came at 7:30 a.m. to begin cooking pancakes, and breakfast was served to the 16 participants at 9:00 a.m.

Awaiting the arrival of hungry missionaries...
Following breakfast, we had a very interesting and edifying council, where all missionaries participated actively and discussed how we can help every missionary experience the great joy of baptizing every month. There was a great spirit in the meeting and all "rejoiced together."

Unfortunately, Hna. Hinckley was able to attend only briefly as she needed to accompany a missionary to the emergency room. Not to worry, all is well!
