Guatemala Retalhuleu Mission Christmas Ornament
This ornament is a great way to remember your missionary and their service during the holidays! The design on this ornament is inspired by the Flag of Guatemala.
Made out of a lightweight and very durable transparent acrylic, these ornaments will not weigh your tree down and can definitely withstand being dropped by the little ones should they get too curious around the tree. The acrylic is cut into a 4 inch circle and then laser etched with the name of the mission and graphics inspired by the region served.
The design on this ornament is inspired by the Flag of Guatemala. The nation’s coat of arms is also located in the center of the flag. The national bird is the quetzal, which is featured in the design. This bird symbolizes liberty. The coat of arms also has a scroll that has the date of September 15, 1821, which is when Central America became independent from Spain. There are two crossed rifles that symbolize how the nation is willing to use force to defend itself, the laurel crown that symbolizes victory, and the cross swords that represent the honor of the nation.
Get one for yourself or send a pair out to your missionary and their companion!
Mission Social Media Groups
These groups are a great way to connect with other families who have missionaries in the same area, reconnect with other missionaries you served with in the past or simply learn more about the mission. Depending on the membership activity in the group, these can be truly amazing resources!
