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.

Specialized Training Conferences

During August we held specialized traning conferences with each zone. On sunday, 14 August, we flew to Bilbao and met with the Vitoria zone in Bilbao on Monday. Monday afternoon we flew from Bilbao to Palma, where we had a training conference on Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon we flew to Valencia for a training conference on Wednesday.

The Ayudantes met us in Valencia on Wednesday and we drove up to Albacete on Wednesday evening where we had a wonderful visit with the branch president and his counselor. We have not had missionaries in Albacete for several years, but we wanted the branch president to know he had not been forgotten. The branch is part of the Valencia Stake and has a wonderful little chapel, very well maintained, in this beautiful city of La Mancha.

Thursday we drove back to Barcelona and met with the Hospitalet zone on Friday.

On Monday we had our weekly meetings with the office staff and the Ayudantes, while Hna. Hinckley made several trips to Teknon with missionaries who needed medical attention. And on Tuesday we met with the Barcelona zone for a training conference.

Our final training conference of the series was held with the Lleida zone on Friday.

Much of the focus during these conferences was on finding new investigators. We had some wonderful discussion and role-plays based on principles from Preach My Gospel.
