- Have you ever felt just a little bit conspicuous or uncomfortable as you carried large sacrament trays down the street or through a parking lot into a hospital or nursing home as you went about your assignment to take the sacrament to someone who is ill or unable to attend meetings regularly?
- Have you had the experience of searching for a plastic bag or some kind of container to carry a piece of bread and a few cups?
- Have you made do with a glass and saucer from the cupboard?
- Have you wished that you had a clean white cloth to cover a table and the sacrament as well?
- Have you been in isolated circumstances as a member of the military when you felt a desire to partake of the sacrament?
- Have you, as a missionary, been asked to serve the sacrament to people in a remote location?
Thousands of priesthood holders around the world have experienced first-hand how The Traveler mini sacrament kit has brought an additional spirit of respect and reverence to the authorized administration of the sacrament in a wide range of circumstances.
The Traveler Mini Sacrament Kit
The idea for the creation of a portable sacrament kit first occurred to Daren Allison about 40 years ago, when, as a deacon in the aaronic priesthood, he was given an assignment to take the sacrament to some members of the LDS church who were in the hospital. In 1997, he decided to do something about it, and created the first mini sacrament kit in his garage. Many thousands are now in use around the world.
Lightweight, small, and portable in a water repellent cordura case, The Traveler fits in a LDS missionary backpack, attaché case, desk drawer, under the seat or glove box of a car, military pack, etc. This mini sacrament kit contains a bread tray, water tray, 2 white cotton clothes, a container for plastic or paper sacrament cups, a container for bread, and a sacrament prayer card in a water repellant black Cordura zippered bag measuring approximately 5″ x 5″ x 2 1/2″.
What a great gift for a young missionary, military man and all priesthood holders.
