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.

Rumors of the arrival of Elder Escobar have been circulating for weeks! The missionary system included him in the group of missionaries scheduled to arrive on 29 May. Then we got the word two weeks ago that he was arriving at the Madrid MTC and would come with our group that arrived 17 April. Then we got a call on the 16th saying he would not be traveling with that group. Then on Wednesday we were notified that he could come on Friday morning. Since we had a training conference scheduled for Friday morning, we arranged for him to come on Thursday night. And he did! 

We are excited to finally have him in Barcelona. He joined us for training in the morning, and this afternoon went to work!
