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 Transfer Transfers...

Regularly scheduled transfers were complete on Wednesday, 30 May 2012. On Saturday, we bid farewell to Elder and Sister Brown who have served as advisors to the Barcelona Center for Young Adults (as well as making mountains of sandwiches for zone conferences, inspecting pisos, etc.!). They will be missed!

Then on Thursday, 7 June 2012, two of our visa-waiters arrived: Elders Beaton and Kersten. We were excited to welcome them to the Faro today!

In between, we drove up to La Seu to preside at the conference of the little Andorra Branch. We were excited to have 36 people at branch conference! We have about 10-12 active members, but we sent missionaries into La Sea last month for the first time in 3 years, and they are seeing great success. Looking forward to two baptisms next week, the first in many years in this branch.

  1. Every day is a transfer day...

  2. President, didn't Elders Hall and Hancock serve for three weeks in La Seu and Andorra in August of 2010? But that's amazing that they have full time missionaries there with a baptism to boot! Que viva el Faro!

  3. True, but it was a temporary assignment - they spent three weeks there before they went home to see what they could learn about propsects in the area, but we never rented a piso or intended to replace them.
