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.

Concilio and Leadership Training

Our monthly zone leader council (Concilio) was held on Monday, 26 March 2012. The next day we had a full day of leadership training, which included all the zone and district leaders and all the trainers - 45 missionaries! We had two wonderful days of training and learning and being taught by the Spirit!

Hna. and Elder Dalton really are brother and sister, and both are trainers!

Hnas. Reeder, Cruz, Dalton and Fernley are all training

Thank you, Elder Rhead, for taking the rug back to the office!

Even during training meetings there is other work to do:

during a break in the meeting.

During the training meetings, the missionaries finalized new goals for the mission: 60 convert baptisms in April and 600 during the year 2012! There was a great outpouring of the Spirit as we move forward during this second harvest!


  1. Wow you have two siblings in your mission? How fun would that be! Also Elder Reeves looks super excited about his new apartment.

  2. Elder Reeves is lucky to be getting a new apartment. By any chance do you know where Elder Reeves is from? I may be related to him. If he has ancestry from central Utah that came over with the pioneers I am probably related in some way.

    But six hundred baptisms is awesome! 300 by July first for sure! Visca el Faro!

  3. Elder Reeves is from Bountiful; his father was released as Pres. of the California Riverside mission a year ago. He is in charge of pisos and supplies in the office, and as our numbers are expanding has rented about 6 new pisos in the last few months (including get out of some old ones)!
