Because of her giving spirit, Beth began sewing for LEAP several years ago, using one of the talents that God gave her. Having learned to sew at a very young age, Beth asked if there would be a need to help families carry items home from the hospital. As a result, medicine bags to hold the patients’ medications¬†and post-op care instructions to carry home, sometimes very long distances away. These bags could also be used in a variety of ways after the patient’s recovery.

Over the years, Beth has handmade approximately 400 bags for children all over the world. These bags have been bright and cheerful, using a variety of materials that the children love! Beth chooses the colors carefully, making sure they are tailored, completed, and ironed before the mission trips. And yes, we have medicine bags already packed for our trip to Haiti!

Thank you, Beth, for sharing your talent, ministry and love to greatly benefit others in our world. You are most remarkable!
