After welcoming all the missionaries to Barcelona we had a quick meeting to begin introducing these wonderful missionaries to their new home. After that meeting we enjoyed a delicious meal of enchiladas with corn and a salad on the side for lunch followed by a brownie and ice cream for dessert! 

After lunch we went to Mont Juïc. This is always a special trip for the new missionaries. They had the opportunity to look over the entirety of Barcelona and take a moment reflect on the special experiences that they are about to have.
