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.

Last Zone Conference: Valencia

On Thursday (14 June 2012) we drove with the Ayudantes to Valencia, where we held zone conference on Friday. This was the last time we will see these missionaries, at least in the mission. So it was a somewhat bittersweet experience. They are wonderful and remarkable young men and women. We had a wonderful day together and left having been edified by the Spirit.

  1. We have been so impressed with this stellar blog! Thanks for keeping all us well-wishers informed. What a terrific experience for everyone! It's sad to leave but we'll be so glad to have you home. We'd love to have dinner when you get settled (probably everybody would)! Congratulations on a fantastic three years and for your love and support of Sister Eyre. She couldn't have been blessed with better mission parents!

    Much love, Rick and Linda

  2. We would love to visit with you! We are sad to leave, but excited to return home!
