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.

Help Arrives - in the form of the Belnaps!

One of the great benefits of the recent boundary change is that Elder and Hna. Belnap (from Glendale, AZ), who served in the office in the Spain Bilbao Mission, have now come to Barcelona! While we were driving up to Vitoria to meet our new young missionaries, the Belnaps were driving down to Barcelona - we think we passed each other on the freeway somewhere near Zaragoza!

Most of their time will be spent helping us get some of our missionary apartments, which have suffered some neglect, up to standards. They are off and running - yesterday they made their first trip to IKEA and purchased new bunk beds and mattresses!

A very warm welcome to the wonderful Belnaps!!
