Dear families of our new missionaries,
We are pleased to inform you that your son has safely arrived in the Spain Barcelona Mission. Hermana Pace and I, along with the two assistants, met him at the airport. The group of missionaries we have received are wonderful young men and women, ready to go to work. Their enthusiasm reflects their love for the Savior and we are grateful for the privilege of guiding them along as they serve the Lord.
Every area in the Spain Barcelona Mission is unique and beautiful, rich in history and tradition. More importantly, each city is full of children of our Heavenly Father, waiting to hear the glad news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Thank you for the trust you have put in us to shepherd your son. Please know that we feel a great responsibility to guide and protect “our” missionaries. We love your sons and daughters as if they were our own. With the Lord’s help, we intend to make their mission experience in Barcelona the most memorable time of their lives.

Elder Hardy said they went straight to "a castle on top of some hill"!
I looked it up and it is Montjuic Hill which translates as "The hill of the Jews".
