Part of the fun and satisfaction of a project like Zion Bags is knowing that an idea that began only 2 years ago is today being carried, literally, all over the world. We are humbled and grateful to all the missionaries that have put their confidence and trust in our bags. We feel like we are companions with you in the mission field.
With this early success, has come a lot of responsibility. We know that our bags have to withstand every climate and condition in which our missionaries are serving in the more than 400 missions worldwide. This is our goal and commitment to you!
Recently our co-founder Shawn was reading one of the future missionary notices we receive daily. One of the announcements stood out to him because a missionary had been called to labor in the same mission his oldest son served in, the Cambodia Phnom Penh Mission. Shawn not only knew what was ahead for this young missionary because he had experienced his son’s trials through his weekly letters for 2 years, he also experienced it 1st hand when he had the privilege of traveling to Cambodia and bringing his son home. It was the harshest and most physically challenging 10 days of his life!
Because of his personal experience, Shawn felt compelled to reach out to this young Cambodia-bound missionary and assisted him in acquiring one of our Endure bags.
A few days later we received this letter.
I got a surprise today and my bag ended up coming today instead of Saturday like we originally thought. My parents and I are so impressed with the bag! You seriously thought of everything with this. There are tons and tons of pockets everywhere, interior and exterior, which will be so nice for storing whatever I need to store. The material is good for almost any weather conditions, and the little rain cover is really nice. I really like the look of the bag, and I like that there is a belt to wear while riding a bike so the bag doesn’t flop around. Seriously this bag seems so high quality and based on first impressions we are very happy with our purchase. It was a good choice! Thanks for reaching out to me to let me know about your bags and for all your help getting it!
