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.

"Scheduled" Transfers

Today was actually a "scheduled" transfer day, meaning it is a day in which, barring visa issues, missionaries are scheduled to arrive and go home. Because we are going through a phase of growth in the number of missionaries in the mission after the reductions of two years ago, no one went home this week. In fact, Since November we have only had 3 missionaries return home!

Elder Huaman and Elder Valles arrived this morning from the Madrid MTC, excited and ready to go to work. Elder Roco and Elder Shumway have been working with zone leaders for the past week since they arrived, and today met and began working with their trainers.
